Baroka Coach: We're Just Giving Away Goals

Despite rallying from behind to claim a point against Orlando Pirates, Baroka FC coach Wedson Nyirenda was not pleased with his side's defending on the day.

An own goal from Happy Jele and a late strike from Gerald Phiri Junior helped Baroka come back from two goals down to secure a 2-2 draw against the Soweto giants on Saturday afternoon.

The Zambian mentor was not happy with how Pirates were allowed to get both their goals through mistakes.

"Like I said, it was not going to be easy, playing a team which is not getting what they deserve in the league, we also playing our game but I think we gave them too much room in the first-half," Nyirenda told SuperSport after the match.

"We could've wrapped up the game in the first-half after missing that sitter, [after that] we gave them too much room, they did everything they could do. They came on top of us and got the goal.

"As usual it was just a give and go, we're not conceding, we are just giving [away goals]. [But in the] second-half I think I saw the character now of my team despite being 1-0 down we came up [but] we conceded another goal from a mistake but we still kept on going and we got the deserved two goals that we needed."
