Super Eagles Technical adviser, Gernot Rohr, is confident that his team won't be unsettled by the  result of the team's last encounter with South Africa in Uyo, reports Completesportnigeria.com.

The Super Eagles were held to a 2-2 draw at home by South Africa in 2014 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium Uyo in a final qualifying game for the 2015 AFCON.

The draw however denied Nigeria a place at the  competition in Equatorial Guinea.

"I was not there when they  played a 2-2 draw, and I don't think my players will allow that happen on Saturday," Rohr told Completesportnigeria.com.

"We are not going to play for a draw. This group cannot afford to falter against South Africa."

Super Eagles remain unbeaten under Rohr's tutelage in eight games, and will look to extend his winning streak to seven wins in nine matches.
