Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Musa Nyatama says Bucs are prepared to give “150%” against Mamelodi Sundowns to avenge their first-round defeat.

The Sea Robbers suffered a 3-1 loss to the Brazilians in November last year and now have the chance to put the record straight when the two sides clash at Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday.

"It's going be a difficult game against Mamelodi Sundowns and we know that very well," Nyatama was quoted saying by KickOff website.

"They will come out (guns) blazing. We will also do our best to collect maximum points away. We know they beat us in the first round, they owe us big time.

"So, we have to win. It's a must for us (to win).

"We have also got quality on our side. We are prepared for a battle on the field.

"We are prepared to go the extra mile and to work very hard. We shall try to give a 150% performance and will make a point to win."

Pirates are in fifth position, eight points behind league leaders Sundowns.

Nyatama has played in 15 of the Buccaneers 16 league games since joining from Bloemfontein Celtic and has scored twice.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
