In what will be a round two match although in different competitions, Stellenbosch FC plan to continue where they left off with their approach against Orlando Pirates, when they face off in an Absa Premiership clash at Cape Town Stadium this coming weekend.
Following the 1-0 loss in Orlando in the Telkom Knockout last weekend, the Mother City outfit is not deterred, with the team satisfied with the fighting spirit against the Buccaneers after it took close to 85 minutes for reigning PSL Footballer of the Season Thembinkosi Lorch to score the only goal of the match.
Speaking to the media about the upcoming clash, Stellenbosch captain Jarrod Moroole lauded his team’s performance from the previous match.
“In the (previous) game we actually defended quite well. But Orlando Pirates is a good team…they’ve been in the PSL for many years now. Obviously, they are playing for the fans, they are playing for themselves and they need to win because they have to get a little up there. But we kept them at bay. But at the end it was just a lapse of concentration…but it was a good goal,” said Moroole.
