AFTER playing to a goalless draw with Gaborone United, Orlando Pirates have pledged not to spoil South Africa's celebrations of the 2010 World Cup 100 days countdown.
Pirates, who tend to suffer from a goal-scoring phobia, welcome The Reds in an African Champions League return match in Port Elizabeth on Sunday.
The match will also serve as part of the festivities to officially open the Nelson Mandela Bay Sports Complex, which is one of the 10 venues for the World Cup.
In the first leg, played at the University of Gaborone Stadium, Pirates' under-pressure coach Ruud Krol fielded a skeleton team after resting most of his regular players.
"It will be a different ball game on Sunday. Everybody will be back after the technical staff gave the other players a run in the first leg," said Bucs goalie Moeneeb Josephs.
"We want to go all the way to the final and emulate the success of the class of 1995 that made history by being the only team in Southern Africa to win the Champions League. We are playing well but need to add more fire up front. We are playing for South Africa and cannot afford to disappoint."
United general secretary Kagiso Sebele said: "We were unlucky not to win the first leg but are going to South Africa to embarrass Pirates in their own back yard."
Pirates have recalled Mduduzi Nyanda from the Amabinnesplaas squad to play Swaziland.
