Tinkler: We Were Very, Very Poor

Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler admits his side were ‘very, very poor’ after losing 1-0 to Bidvest Wits in an Absa Premiership match on Wednesday night.

James Keene scored the only goal of the game just before the half-hour mark to hand the Buccaneers their ninth loss of the season.

Pirates dominated the second half proceedings, but could not penetrate a well-organised Wits defence.

“In the first half they (Wits) started a lot better than us, had a lot more energy and the will to win,” said Tinkler after the match.

“I thought they were a lot more aggressive and got to the ball first which we warned the players about prior to the game.

“It wasn’t a good performance in the first half although we had a few chances and hit the post.

“The second half was a lot better although we didn’t get in behind them enough.

“Everything was poor tonight, the crossing, the free-kicks, what we created tonight was very, very poor.”

Still, despite the disappointment in his team’s performance, Tinkler felt they deserved a point.

“Over the 90 minutes I think we deserved a little bit more than coming away with no points,” added the Buccaneers coach.”

“I think a draw would have been a fair reflection on the game because we were a lot better in the second half. We dominated and created a few more chances where Moeneeb (Josephs) had to make two very good saves.”
