Nyatama: Bucs ready to give 150 percent

Orlando Pirates midfielder Musa Nyatama says Bucs are prepared to give '150 percent' against Mamelodi Sundowns in order to avenge their first-round defeat.

The Sea Robbers suffered a 3-1 reverse to the Brazilians in early November and now have the chance to put the record straight when they meet Sundowns at the Loftus Versfeld Stadium on Saturday afternoon, 3:30pm kickoff.

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

"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.

"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 percent 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 Bucs' 16 league games since joining from Bloemfontein Celtic and has scored twice.
