Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer acknowledges that his men will need to be at the top of their game to beat Jwaneng Galaxy on Sunday.
The Buccaneers will face the Botswana outfit at the Gaborone National Stadium for a CAF Confederation Cup playoff clash.
Zinnbauer expects difficult conditions in Botswana, and has emphasised to his players the importance of concentration and hard work as they aim to beat Galaxy in their own backyard.
"Strong team [Galaxy], tall players and a squad with good physique. I think this is not an easy game, we need to be fully concentrated and to work [for the entire game] and we will have a chance to win this game," said Zinnbauer as per Phakaaathi.
"If we want to go to the next round, we need points on our side. It's important we get a good result outside [away from home]. I know it's not easy, especially with the travelling, fields that are different to what we have.
"But we experienced the same thing in Angola, it was not our field, we travelled for a long time. So, it's the same situation as before. But we had a good result in the away game [against Sagrada]."
He added: "What is important is to get a good result in the away game first. When we score, we will have an away goal which is good for us. Maybe we will play a draw, but it's important that we win. We will have a good chance at home."
