Orlando Pirates coach Jose Riveiro says his side must focus on their own game as they look to secure a CAF Champions League spot.

The Buccaneers are currently in third place on the DStv Premiership standings with 43 points from 25 games – three adrift of an in-form Stellenbosch in second.

Riveiro’s charges are next in action against Cape Town City at Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday.

They come into this clash on the back of three successive league wins, including a 4-0 hammering of Royal AM last time out.

Ahead of their midweek clash, the Bucs boss said they can’t be distracted by Stellies’ recent results, that includes a 5-0 demolition of Polokwane City.

The head coach said in the Sowetan: “Our focus is on ourselves. We must win every remaining game until the end.

“We can’t control what our opponents do. They (Stellenbosch) have their matches to play. We try to concentrate on what we can control. 

“Our performance and our next opponents, now we travel to Cape Town to face City on Wednesday and it is going to be key in collecting three points again because the top of the table is very tight.”

A confident Riveiro added: “We have a lot of talent in the team. The front four is not exceptional, obviously. Right now, we are in the moment where the ball is getting into the net.

“Early in the season, I think we played better games than today [Sunday] and we didn’t manage to score a single goal. Right now, we are much more confident when we are in the last third.”
