Bucs Coach: Our Biggest Problem Is…

Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer has identified his side’s biggest problem following their 2-0 loss to Golden Arrows on Tuesday.

Pirates’ inconsistent form continued at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium when they failed to build on their impressive win in the Soweto Derby just days earlier. The stop-start nature has been the story of Pirates’ domestic campaign so far, as they struggle to keep up with the early pace-setters.

After the match, Pirates coach Zinnbauer shared his sentiments on what the Soweto giants have been struggling with most this season.

“The performance in the first half was not enough to win the game. In the second half, yes, they did more, but we have a problem we don’t score at the moment. You see we don’t score the penalty and the other chances that we had, but its not enough. We have to work from the first second of the game to the last,” Zinnbauer told the media after the game.

Pirates’ inconsistencies have been laid bare this season. Only on one occasion have the Buccaneers managed to put together a string of victories which came in November 2020, when they beat Chiefs (twice) as well as Bloemfontein Celtic.

Since then, it has been a case of one step forward and two steps back for Zinnbauer’s side who are under increasing pressure to deliver.

Pirates' next match will come in the form of a Nedbank Cup clash against Uthongathi FC and Zinnbauer is expected to ring in the changes, with a number of fringe players expected to get a run.
