De Sa Admits Frustration

De Sa Admits Frustration

By Diogo Peral - Apr 04, 2013 08:00 AM

Orlando Pirates head coach Roger de Sa says he was left disappointed after his team was held to a 1-1 draw by AmaZulu on Wednesday - read full match report here.

Collins Mbesuma netted early for the Buccaneers, but a Goodman Dlamini equaliser ensured a share of the points.

“Obviously I’m disappointed. We had a couple of chances to bury the game and we didn’t,” said De Sa.

“It was always dangerous letting them come at us, but we should have put the ball away. Our basics were poor in the final third, but at least everyone gave it a full go, so I can’t fault them for that.

“We should have won, we did enough to win and there were of course unforced errors. But when it doesn’t go your way you have to just knuckle down and keep working.”

De Sa admitted that the depth in his squad has been tested as injuries to key players has had a major effect on the season.

“There is a lot of fatigue setting in. We have a lot of guys out with injuries so we’re relying on a lot of the same faces week in and week out, but we’re trying to rest in between,” he added.

“We must just keep focusing and do our best to win our games. That’s all we can do.”

Orlando Pirates are still second on the PSL table, but will have to start bagging points if they still hope to close the gap on first placed Chiefs.

Can Bucs still lift the title? Have your say in Express Yourself?

Considering the fact that the reserve fixture was also played to a draw I would think Pirates did well in this game as they grabbed a point away. What seem to make people think Pirates played badly is just that they "didn't close the gap".

The worse part for rats fans is that, the more this couch of some sort advances to the group stages of the Africa Champs Log the more are the chances for blue tooth to keep him. He'll have a chance to hang on further and do more damage only for rats to get knocked out during the group stage......that will be around aug - sept. It is when that bluetooth will find a reason to fire him and the 2013-14 season will be already messed up. Thats more damage i am talking about. You watch the space. I am not a god, but i do reason, rats can win the ACL, but NOT UNDER RDS......Roger de Sa will NEVER WIN CHAMPS LOG, NEVER. For bluetooth to intertain that fiction is what is going to cause more misery to rats crowd.

I don't get why RDS is the only person being blamed here but the hole team is not performing, our so called professional players fail to do their jobs but we must understand. They must show us that they are proud to dawn our jersey and fight. Roger selects the team and they play and if Roger's tectics don't work someone on the pitch must stand up do the ryt thing for the team. Our Jersey is not a skhothana emblem. If Roger cant do his job they must do theirs
