Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa says his side failed to convert their chances that is why they ended up settling for a 1-1 draw against AmaZulu in the Absa Premiership encounter at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Thursday night.
The draw means the Buccaneers have only collected a point from their opening two opening matches of the 2014 after losing 2-1 to Supersport United before throwing Ayanda Gcaba’s second-half opener to draw level away from home despite dominating the match.
“It’s frustrating that we don’t score when we are on top of our game,” said RDS after the thrilling encounter. “I am frustrated as this was the same problem when we lost to Supersport United last Saturday but we will get it right.
The Orlando Pirates faithful have been calling for the exit of the former Bidvest Wits coach, saying he hasn’t brought what they expected when he took over in 2012 September. Roger de Sa, who guided the Johannesburg-based side to three finals including the CAF Champions league final and coming second in three occasions, says he is worried just like the fans with the poor start into the New-Year.
“I am also frustrated just like the fans but they should also think that I am not in the field of play so I can’t put the ball in the back of net. They need to understand that we are doing the best as a team to win and we don’t go out to miss our chances and lose games.” Added the 49-year old mentor
Orlando Pirates are 9th on the log with 17 points after 10 matches, and they next face coachless Ajax Cape Town at the Orlando Stadium on Monday, the 27th of January, kickoff at 19:30 CAT.
