Tinkler Rules Out Repetition Of Win Over Cosmos

Orlando Pirates coach, Eric Tinkler, has said that his team’s 5-0 win against Jomo Cosmos counts for nothing in their Nedbank Cup clash today.

The former Bafana Bafana defender discussed the league fixtures between the two sides this season, notably the 5-0 win on March 12, but says that previous results will have no bearing on today’s result.

“It's true we won the last game we played but they also won the other one so this is a different game,” the 45-year-old told the Siya crew.

“They are two different games.”

Tinkler added that his team’s focus is on winning today and progressing to the next round of the competition.

“Our focus will be on winning today to go into the next round and make sure we go as far as the finals. We won't undermine Cosmos because they have shown what they can do and we respect them," he observed.
