Zinnbauer: Pressure on Enyimba to win


Orlando Pirates manager, Josef Zinnbauer has stated that the Buccaneers are facing Enyimba FC in the CAF Confederation Cup Group A tie with relaxed minds as they know their host will be under pressure to aspire for a win on Wednesday.

Pirates are first in Group A with nine points and have remained unbeaten in all the five group stage games they have prosecuted with two wins and three draws and will qualify for the Quarter-final with a draw in Aba on Wednesday night.

But Zinnbauer noted that he and his players won’t be content with a draw knowing that securing an away win will see them top the group ahead of the remaining three teams.

“I think both teams are going to fight for three points. It is open at the moment because both teams need a win. I think Enyimba have more pressure than us,” Zinnbauer told journalists in Aba in an interview monitored by www.dasportstainment247.com.

“Enyimba have a strong team and are to be feared especially at home. We know the Enyimba team very well. They have a good defence. It was not easy beating them in South Africa.

“Even though we know we may qualify with a point, we will go for the three points so that we can top the group. We respect Enyimba because they are a big club in Nigeria.”
