Sandilands: We Need To Stick To The Coaches' Game Plan

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands says the players just need to stick to the game plan laid out by the coaches.

Pirates could only manage a goalless draw at Stellenbosch on Tuesday afternoon, officially ending their hopes of fighting for the title.

Sandilands was named Man of the Match, which should give you an indication of how Pirates' afternoon went at Danie Craven Stadium.

"I think it's a bit of a mixed emotions, obviously as a keeper you don't want to be Man of the Match because that means you were more busier than you should be," Sandilands told SuperSport TV.

"It's a difficult match, obviously it's not easy to come to Stellenbosch, a team that is well organised, well coached and obviously fighting for their lives.

"Ja we tried our best, obviously we have to get back to the drawing board, sharpen up our performance and try to get as many points that are available with the games remaining.

"There's been some good moments and there's been some low moments, I think for us it's just a matter of trying to find that consistency you know.

"Obviously we have a game plan, the coaches put a game plan together and obviously we just need to stick to it and perform within the structure and try remain as consistent as possible and try put good performances week in and week out..

"We have to match every team that we come up against, there's lot of intensity, a lot of hunger from the opponents, first of all we have to match that and from there the quality within the team needs to speak for itself.

"We'll keep on going, we have to make sure that we just stick to what we're good at and make sure we're more consistent."

Here are 22 players who failed to live up to expectations at Pirates:
