TS Galaxy head coach Owen Da Gama is eager to build on his side's 3-0 win over Martizburg United when they take on Orlando Pirates on Tuesday.

Their recent win ended a run of nine games without a victory, to leave them in 13th place on the DStv Premiership standings with 11 points from 12 games.

The result was a huge morale booster for Galaxy though, with Da Gama saying any kind of a result against Bucs would be a "blessing".

Pirates, meanwhile, suffered a shock 2-0 loss to Black Leopards before drawing with Golden Arrows, and beating Maritzburg in their last encounter.

Da Gama told KickOff: "What can one say about Pirates? Quality you know, good coaches, very good players. We will not be floored by what happened against Black Leopards you know, because we're under no illusions that they are a very good team.

"Every team is entitled to a bit of a slump here and there, but they regrouped well and came back very strong against Maritzburg."

He added: "Anything against Pirates is a blessing you know. A draw would be a blessing, a win would be a super blessing.

"So, you know it's a tough venue, but anything is possible in football. In life anything is possible. So, we're always positive about the possibilities."
