CAPE TOWN - Titans captain and opening batsman Henry Davids feels they have the psychological edge over the Cobras going into today's Momentum One Day Cup final at Newlands.

The Titans beat the Cobras home and away in the competition this season.

Davids is also hoping to lead his team to victory over his former Cobras side where he for played six years before moving up north to the Titans in 2010.

He says while they are chasing a hat trick of wins over the Cobras, he knows it won't be easy.

"This season, if you look at the stats, we have beaten the Cobras several times. We beat them two weeks ago in Cape Town as well. So I think we are going to get a tough one and obviously they're going to be up for us."

Davids says the Cobras will be under pressure to win at home but could be susceptible to panic and this might make them slip up.

"I think it's in the back of their head as well. I'd say that there is more pressure on the Cobras."

But he says the Cobras will still be a tough team to beat given their pedigree in winning finals.

"They are a very experienced team. They know how to win finals. But so do we. I think we are the most successful franchise in the country for the last 10 years. It's going to be tough."

The match starts at 3pm
