Orlando Pirates defender Olisa Ndah says he’s not concerned about the recent comment made by Kaizer Chiefs forward Wandile Duba. 
After scoring his first senior goal in Chiefs 1-0 win over Golden Arrows on Tuesday, Duba confidently warned that the Buccaneers must be ready for him as the two teams gear up to meet in the Soweto Derby on Saturday.
Ndah believes that excitement got over Duba when he made the comment.
“No, I don’t think it’s a challenge, they just scored a goal. I’m not worried about what the little guy said, I think he is more excited.
“So I’m just looking forward to the next game on Saturday, we just have to deliver,” Ndah told reporters.
Ndah (26) has become a pillar in defence for Bucs since returning from injury. The Nigerian defender scored an own goal the last time he featured in the Derby. Pirates went on to lose 1-0 in that game.
Pirates were victorious in the first round, a result that ended a five match losing run against their fierce rivals.
Ndah noted that Chiefs have been better in recent derbies because they are more motivated than Pirates.
“I think because the Derby motivates them like it does to us. No matter what, no matter how bad we’re playing, it’s a Derby where everyone is at its best and everyone wants to deliver.”
“So I think it’s more like on the occasion, because they know how important it is, so they become more difficult to play,” noted Ndah.
