Orlando Pirates midfielder Riyaad Norodien believes the club's firm back four under coach Kjell Jonevret will help them saunter into the final of the Nedbank Cup.

The Buccaneers are set to meet Golden Arrows in the semi-final at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday.

“We just have to do what we have been doing at training to win the match. We have been very stable at the back since the arrival of coach Jonevret. We have conceded fewer goals and we are looking much better when we play,” said Norodien.

The Nedbank Cup remains the only trophy for Pirates to redeem themselves following a disastrous 2016/17 campaign, which sees the club with a chance of finishing the season outside the top eight.
