It was only the third time all season Pirates had scored more than one goal let alone three as they cruised past Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila.

Prior to this fixture, they had scored 10 in nine league matches. Despite the convincing nature of the scoreline, Zinnbauer felt his side showed a lack of hunger in wanting to kill the game off.

"I think it was a tough game. But we had a lot of opportunities in both halves. And that is the point we have to speak about. You have the possibilities, you have to score. I'm happy that Mhango, Hotto, Makaringe scored. I'm happy with these players. They made good work and they will get a bigger salary for this," the German tactician told SuperSport TV.

"We started well. We had the possibilities earlier to score. When you have the control, you have to kill the game of. You have to be hungry. My feeling is we were not hungry. 3-0 and then we go back and play a bit casual. It's just something we have to work on.

"It's an advantage what we have. We can change easily the structures, the systems, the players. I'm happy Jele is back. We need his experience. He played 25 minutes. The defence was very good. Paseka Mako was good and Wayde Jooste was better on offence today which is what we were looking for and I'm happy he won the man-of-the-match award."
