Tinkler: Bucs Had Soweto Derby In Mind

The upcoming Soweto Derby might have cost Orlando Pirates more points in their midweek game against Free State Stars, if Eric Tinkler’s word is anything to go by.

Pirates drew 1-1 with Ea Lla Koto and dropped two points in the process in their game at the Charles Mopeli Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Following an impressive start by Bucs after scoring an early goal through Kermit Erasmus, Tinkler’s side seemed to have slowed the pace and allowed Stars back in the game, which led to their sharing of points.

According to Tinkler, Pirates were already thinking about their next league game against Kaizer Chiefs this weekend.   

“The game against Free State Stars was difficult. Everybody had the #SowetoDerby at the back of their minds,” Tinkler is quoted saying by the PSL’s Twitter account.
