We can’t afford to concede – Ncikazi
“One must remember that we can beat these opponents when we play at home in Johannesburg,” Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi said ahead of this afternoon’s clash.
“I am happy with the performance of the players and how they applied themselves in difficult conditions. Based on the conditions that we faced in Congo-Brazzaville, let’s take the point and the performance of the players on what was (an) artificial turf.
“With how the opponents treated Orlando Pirates, one has to appreciate the personality and character of the players. Let’s take the point because we are not done yet, but we must remember if they score against us at home there are going to be problems.”
