De Sa Warned Of Sucker-Punch

Following his side’s 2-1 loss to SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership match on Saturday afternoon, Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa said he warned his players of a ‘sucker-punch’ from the Tshwane side.

The Buccaneers controlled the majority of the game, but two lapses in concentration in the second 45 cost them the game.

De Sa said that he warned his troops at half time not to lose concentration and bemoaned their poor finishing in front of goal as they wasted numerous scoring chances.

“We controlled the game the whole time, we had so many chances, but the first ball that gets knocked into our area goes into the back of the net. Poor defending, but that is the way it is,” said De Sa.

“I warned the guys about that at half time, that we might get caught with a sucker-punch, that we needed to keep our concentration.

“And when Mame Niang came in it was always going to be a danger.

“They (SuperSport United) took their chances which was two and we didn’t take our ten, that is the way it goes.

“It is not the first time we have got robbed here (at Orlando Stadium), it happens and we have to be aware of it. We have to put the ball away and kill the game off.

“We have been done a few times when we don’t score.

“We had enough chances today to win it convincingly, but we didn’t.”
