As he seeks his first win in the South African Premier Soccer League, Orlando Pirates coach Kjell Jonevret has urged his charges to remain focused.
The Swedish mentor is now in his third match for the Buccaneers in the Absa Premiership and will hope to bag a win against SuperSport United on Tuesday.
Following their 1-1 draw on Saturday against bitter rivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto derby, Jonevret expressed happiness about his players' commitment.
“I was happy with the match, especially the first half. I think we were the better team at least for the first half but we seemed to tire somewhat in the second half,” Jonevret tells the club's website.

“In the end I am happy with the performance from my players. They showed commitment and desire to win. But obviously we need to continue working hard….we have another tough game coming up against SuperSport United.
“We expect another tough match and we will have to be ready for whatever they will bring.
“We are well and truly in the business end of the season which means that we will not have any easy games.
“Every match will be tough and every match will require all of us to be focused and disciplined."
The match will be staged at Orlando Stadium as Pirates want to avenge the 6-1 defeat of the first round. Kick-off is at 19:30.
