Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojevic says the club's main ambition is to secure CAF Champions League football for a second year in a row.

Pirates are enjoying a fine season in the Premiership and currently lead the standings by six points over Mamelodi Sundowns, though the Brazilians have three games in hand.

A recent run of three consecutive wins in a week over Bidvest Wits, Black Leopards and Free State Stars appears to have made the Sea Robbers strong contenders to take the league crown.

Nonetheless, despite seeing the PSL trophy in touching distance, 'Micho' insists his side are out to guarantee CCL football but are also focused on facing Maritzburg United on April 24.

He said: "I'm enjoying it very much because this is how you grow as a sportsperson and team, and it's an amazing experience.

"Last year we had been in the running until the match where we lost against Cape Town City, but we have really stretched ourselves and we want to continue this year.

"The minimum we're looking at is a second consecutive return to the Champions' League. Whatever else comes, we shall see.

"Nothing else and nothing more [matters], except the Maritzburg United match, in our minds."
