Jwaneng Galaxy’s head coach, Morena Ramoreboli believes the home win against Orlando Pirates will add an extra ounce of confidence for the return leg. Galaxy beat Pirates 1-0 in the first leg of CAF Champions League second preliminary round played at the National Stadium yesterday.

It was the Galaxy Stars’ first win against the Buccaneers in three meetings. After the game, Ramoreboli admitted that the away tie will be much tougher but his side will get the job done. “We are not in this stage for the first time. We know the challenges and the pressure we face playing away.

We will always try our level best to give it our all in every opportunity we get. Going away to play Pirates is not going to be easy. We will do our best and make sure we get the result we want,” Ramoreboli said. The home side asserted themselves early in the tie as the duo of Thabang Sesinyi and Daniel Msendami looked threatening on the flanks. They, however, suffered an early blow when Omaatla Kebatho limped off with an injury and was replaced by Gift Moyo inside the first 20 minutes. The home side took the lead on the 24th minute in a well-executed counter play.
