Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena is set on finding solutions to the sort of goals they’ve been conceding of late as he defended that it’s not tactical related.
Though Mokwena defended that the scoreline was not a true reflection of their performance, the young tactician conceded that there is plenty to look into regarding the cause of their defensive lapses.
“I think anyone that didn’t watch the game and just sees the scoreline thinks, ‘Goodness me, Pirates just scraped through,’ but the reality is I think we were in complete control for majority of the match,” defended Mokwena.
“I don’t remember Wayne Sandilands having to make a save in fact, to be honest, but reality is that it ended 3-2 and another two goals were conceded.
“Why? There are a lot of factors to it, and we’ve got to look into it deeply and it’s not just to scratch the surface, because there’s a lot of other mitigating factors to it.
“The one goal [by Mpho Mvelase] was exactly the same as [Leonardo] Castro’s goal when we played Kaizer Chiefs – down the heart, exactly the same, so we have to look at that and try find reasons as to why.
“We will work on it and try to find solutions, but it’s got a lot more to do than just about tactics.”
