Zinnbauer has options ahead of Setif tie

Pirates come into this game on the back of a convincing 3-0 win over Chippa United this past weekend.

While Zinnbauer is motivated by positive results in this competition from Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs, Zinnbauer knows his side face a tough challenge at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The Bucs boss said on KickOff: "My team is focusing on the next game. I am happy when Sundowns and Chiefs win in Africa, but our focus is on the next game.

"It is going to be a difficult one. We have to recover and see who is available to play. We have to fly out to Ghana.

"We get more self-confidence if the other teams are doing well and we get better players in the country and the league. Tomorrow, when we go to Ghana we represent SA and the other teams did well before us."

Zinnbauer added: "We will see which player is fit and I am happy that the injured players are back. We have more options to choose from for the Setif game."
