Tinkler: A Tale Of Two Halves

Orlando Pirates coach, Eric Tinkler, was disappointed with his side's second half display against Polokwane City.

An impressive first half showing saw Pirates go 3-0 up before the halftime break, but it was the complete opposite in the second.

However, there were positives from their fourth straight league win for Tinkler.

"I think it was a tale of two halves if I have to be honest, I thought in the first half we dominated, created a number of chances, I thought our first goal was a fantastic counter attack which we really practiced at training and it was good to see it come off in the game," he said after the game.

"In the first half we were well organised, they didn't have that much opportunities, then second half, it was as if we fell asleep, we conceded that goal from a free-kick and then we could have buried the game I thought.

"We had two or three chances that could have tucked away to finish the game but they just grew in confidence, they started to attack in numbers, we started to struggle in the center of midfield and to be honest they were far better than us in the second half, which was a bit disappointing."
