THE pressure will be on the Cheetahs to win tomorrow's fifth-round Absa Currie Cup match against the Blue Bulls in Bloemfontein.

The match kicks off at 7pm.

The Free Staters are still to win in the competition this year, after losing four straight matches. They are second from the bottom of the table with a solitary bonus point, while the Bulls are second.

Coach Naka Drotske is aware that nothing less than a convincing win will appease their vocal supporters.

"The Blue Bulls are a very difficult team and they are on top of their game but we are facing them with a positive attitude despite the fact that we started the competition on a poor note," said Drotske yesterday.

"It is crucial for us to start winning. Beating the Bulls will go a long way in motivating us in this competition."

Drotske further promised that the past weekend's poor discipline, which largely contributed to their second home defeat against the Sharks, will be a thing of the past.

The Bulls will be boosted by the return of Deon Stegmann and Pedrie Wannenburg to the starting line-up.
