We’re both desperate for points – Ncikazi
“I think it’s two desperate teams, desperate for points if you consider how AmaZulu played the last match.” Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi said.
“Which I thought they should have won but they couldn’t score. Same scenario with us in our previous match. We know they are a good side but like I always said, if Orlando Pirates play the way they are playing, dominate the match the way we dominate and take the chances that we create, we’ve got a big chance of getting the full points.
“We just have to be ruthless in front of goal. We just have to be calm and take the chances. Maybe the fact that we are desperate we also create panic around the players where we should be encouraging them to be more composed around the box.
“This is the only way of taking the chances that we create because we are creating them. It’s just for Orlando Pirates to now put them away.”
