Orlando Pirates coach Vermezovic following 2-1 win over Polokwane City in Telkom Knockout last-16

Posted: 5 October 2014 Time: 17:25

Orlando Pirates coach Vladimir Vermezovic said he hopes the Fifa break proves less disruptive to his charges this time around following the club's 2-1 win over Polokwane City.

REPORT: Pirates 2-1 Polokwane

Bucs bounced from back-to-back losses at City's expense on Sunday, with Thabo Qalinge netting a 68th minute winner after Issa Sarr cancelled out debutant Tokelo Langa's deflected opener at Orlando Stadium.

Vermezovic said after the Telkom Knockout last-16 tie: "Ja, even before the goal, we controlled the game but unfortunately you know it was a mistake, you know it was a rebound.

"But never mind, my guys, they played good football, they are coming back.

"Now we have a Fifa break, we are gonna see. You know the previous time it was not so good for us. I hope this one is better."

The Serbian went on to laud his squad options, having made five team changes against 'Rise and Shine' since his side's previous 1-0 league loss to Chippa United.

"The guys that came back, like Happy [Jele] and [Lehlohonolo] Majoro, they did a good job today. Patrick [Phungwayo] was excellent on the left side.

"This proves we have quality, it doesn't matter if we play Majoro or Kermit [Erasmus], or in the middle [Thandani Ntshumayelo] 'Bibo' or Sarr, the question is only the psychological."

hopefully this break will be good for you to get our house in good stead, last one messed with our rhythm, now I'm expecting this one to be kind to us. But we'll see,  but we definitely weren't good today though, we played kak but fortunately for me we won. I stressed the entire game. Once and always bucs.
