Wome: Our Last Chance To Win Silverware
Dove Wome Eyeing Nedbank Cup Success With Orlando Pirates
Orlando Pirates will play two successive games against Free State Stars, in the Absa Premiership as well as the Nedbank Cup.
Following the Nedbank Cup draw that took place on Thursday night, it was confirmed that Bucs will visit Ea Lla Koto for the Last 16 stage of the competition.
While the dates and venues for the games in the prestigious competition are yet to be confirmed, Pirates do know that they will be visiting Stars at the James Motlatsi Stadium on 1 April for their next league match.
Former Ea Lla Koto forward Dove Wome, who is currently with the Buccaneers on loan from SuperSport United, says it won't be easy to face Stars away from home in two consecutive fixtures.
"We will be playing both games away from home, which will not be easy so we need to be prepared. Free State Stars are a very good side, especially when it comes to cup matches as they have shown recently when they knocked out Kaizer Chiefs in the Telkom Knockout," Wome said, as quoted on Bucs' official website.
"Playing them back to back offers a different challenge. Its easy for a team to fall into the trap of focusing on one competition over the other, but not us. We will take it one game at a time and hopefully we can be successful in both.
"This is our last chance to win silverware for our supporters, so we will be taking it very seriously. We want to get back to playing continental football and this is one competition which gives us an opportunity to do so."
