CAPE TOWN - Ajax Cape Town coach Roger de Sá will put sentiment aside when his current team takes on his former club Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout this evening.

De Sá spent two years at the club before he resigned, but says he never wishes anything bad upon his old side.

The Urban Warriors will travel to Orlando Stadium for their quarterfinal encounter.

De Sá says he is looking forward to seeing friends.

"I'm very happy to go and see some of my old mates really. That's all I've been thinking about."

However, he says he will put the friendships aside and do his job.

"Obviously we'll get down to business for the 90 minutes or whatever it takes and we'll give our best. I think after that it's just a game."

Kick-off is at 8:15pm.

In another encounter, Bidvest Wits will face SuperSport United at 3pm while Mamelodi Sundowns will take on Amazulu at 5:30pm.
