Polokwane City coach Bernard Molekwa was left delighted by his side’s 1-1 draw with Orlando Pirates, but admitted a lapse in concentration cost them two more points.
Lyle Foster cancelled out Dominic Chungwa's first-half volley as Rise and Shine claimed a point at Orlando Stadium on Saturday night.
“The gameplay for us worked well. We had a better game in terms of controlling it,” Molekwa told SuperSport TV.
“The worrying factor for me is that I warned the players about concentration. I told them ‘You have to concentrate from the first whistle until the last whistle.’ At half-time, I told them ‘Pirates obviously are one goal down. Obviously, they are going to throw attackers forward.’”
Molekwa said that he advised his side not to allow Pirates to have too much of the ball, but after a spell of late pressure from the Buccaneers, they grabbed an equaliser.
He felt that his side could have prevented the cross which led to that goal from coming in, but remained positive that Rise and Shine would execute his gameplan better in future.
