Nyatama Expected Orlando Pirates To Thump Baroka
Orlando Pirates midfielder Musa Nyatama says they expected to cruise to victory in the manner they did against Baroka FC at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.
“Yes, it was a start we expected because we wanted to win at all costs. As you know, we didn’t end the year well but we wanted to start this year on a good note,” Nyatama said in a post-match interview with SuperSport.
The Buccaneers were comfortable victors in Soweto thanks to three first-half goals, with a brace from Luvuyo Memela guiding them to a 3-1 win.
The victory put them back into the top-six positions, and put an end to their three game winless run while they resuscitated their title hopes in the process.
“Difficult game it was, we knew they were going to come at us and we needed to score early and it’s what we did. But we took our foot off the pedal in the second half but I’m happy with the three points,” he said.
The former Bloemfontein Celtic man got on the score-sheet as well when he opened proceedings with pin-point header in the opening 10 minutes.
