De Sa - Pirates deserve to win

Bidvest Wits coach Roger De Sa sayss Orlando Pirates were deserved winners

Posted: 23 January 2011 Time: 11:40 am

Bidvest Wits coach Roger De Sa admits Orlando Pirates were the deserved winners after losing the match 3-2 at Orlando Stadium last night. 

The students looked set for an emphatic victory after leading 2-0 at the interval, courtesy of goals from Stanton Fredericks and Sifiso Vilakazi, but Pirates staged an incredible comeback in the second-half to win the match 3-2.   A brace from Isaac Chansa and a late goal by substitute Katlego Mashego gave the Buccaneers all three points to go on top of the log for the first time this season.   "Congratulation to Pirates I think they have had a fantastic comeback but it was expected," said De sa. "We could have killed the game off I think when we hit the post in the first-half. But we knew that there will be an avalanche of attacks after attacks in the second-half.   "I don't think we had the mentality to contain it and I suppose in the balance of play Pirates were deserved winners," he added.   However, De Sa also took a swipe at his defence saying they panicked after Pirates put on a lot of pressure forcing them commit errors which it eventually paid off as Bucs scored their goals from their errors.    "I think we made three basic errors one from the right back, one from the left back and then the third goal came from the centre back, he allows the ball to bounce.   "So three basic errors three goals but like I said Pirates deserved to win they played well in the second-half , but to score two goals and not getting anything out of the game is very disappointing," he concludes.

At least you are not like other coaches who would be having a strong swipe at the referee for their loss. Sorry De Sa and I wish you all the best for the remainder of the season.

Well done Pierats! like De Sa says, you deserve the win! to come back like that after being down 2-0 is commendable. Hope you can keep that form. I am upset with my defense, they made an average player like Mayambela look good good! Good change by Krol which turned the game on its head for Pierats - my defense did not see that coming! Tefu needs to lead by example and he is not doing that right now!

Sory shame maKaizer Wits, Pirates was just too good for wits and is not Kroll that we played and won like that. Actually Kroll nearly costed us the game with his starting eleven. Klate was not fit for this game and I dont know what he sees in Malokase. I dont blame him though for giving Senzo a chance, but Senzo proved to us that he is not a Pirates material. He cant play under pressure. This game reminded me of the oppening of Orlando stadium when we walloped Thanda. Meyiwa was the keeper and he was fumbling all over the place. Please transfer Senzo.
