Orlando Pirates assistant coach Fadlu Davids is hoping to build on the impressive win over Kaizer Chiefs with all three points against Bloemfontein Celtic.

Bucs secured a 3-0 MTN8 semi-final first leg victory over their Soweto rivals to head into this weekend's second-leg.

But they have the small task of overcoming an inform Celtic side at the Seisa Ramabodu Stadium.

With Josef Zinnbauer back in Germany to attend to family matters, Davids will take charge of the side.

He told the club's official website: "When you come off a good result, it definitely lifts the mood and brings the togetherness and team spirit up," said Davids on the club's platforms.

"If you analyse the secret to the success, there was a lot of good things tactically, yes, but the most important thing was the team effort and the team structure - working as a team and not as individuals.

"Now it's a [case of], on the one hand, to carry that momentum into the next game but not to dwell on the past success, and to put all the focus into the next PSL match."
