Zwane On Mini Derby Defeat: ‘We Still Wouldn’t Have Scored…’
Arthur Zwane feels like Kaizer Chiefs wouldn’t have beaten Orlando Pirates even if they’d played for another 90 minutes over the weekend.
The Buccaneers took the Soweto bragging rights last month when they beat Chiefs in the Absa Premiership to extend their lead over them on the log, and on Sunday their Multichoice Diski Challenge side followed suit with a 1-0 victory.
Pirates’ first-team goalkeeper, Wayne Sandilands put in a fine performance to help keep the Amakhosi out, and Zwane says that it just wasn’t going to be a good day at the office for them.
‘10111’ told Chiefs’ official website, “I thought we could have won this match. If it had been a boxing encounter, we would have easily won on points. But this is football, you don’t score, you don’t win.
“It was one of those games – even if we played for another 90 minutes, we still wouldn’t have scored. It happens. We just have to move on and focus on our next MDC match.”
Pirates’ win saw them move up to 13th on the MDC table, just one point behind their rivals in 11th place, although both sides have won just two of their eight matches so far.
