Read: Pirates Drop Vital Points After Draw With SuperSport

Following his team’s CAF Confederation Cup exploits this past weekend, United and the Buccaneers played to a 0-0 draw in the Absa Premiership on Wednesday night.

The draw leaves SuperSport in 14th spot, one point ahead of Ajax Cape Town, who occupy the relegation playoff place.

“I have to give credit to the guys because it wasn’t an easy game,” Tembo told SuperSport after the match.

“This is a very good Pirates team.

“In the first half, we tried to be a little more adventurous. We created better opportunities in the first half when we played them a little bit high when they didn’t really have the ball. The second half they dominated play and had most of the possession.

“Getting to half-time at 0-0 pushed us mentally. You don’t want to concede, especially late in the first half.

“When we came back in the second half we knew we wouldn’t have the legs, we were pushing them hard. We had to play on the transition. We had a couple of chances on transition because we had to sit back.

“The performance was brilliant from the guys.

“We will keep working. The most important thing is the performance today. If we keep working, we will get our break.”
