Pirates is Still Aiming For DStv Premiership Title

Orlando Pirates was recently beaten 2-0 at home by Mamelodi Sundowns at the DStv Premiership match and this is one loss that has taken the Buccaneers aback as they have the intentions to win the league this season. Like almost every other team in the league the Soweto giants are on a mission to win the DStv Premiership title, and their technical team know very well that they will need to work extra hard and they must win their respective league matches.

Since Orlando Pirates has not yet announced their permanent coach Mandla Ncikazi and Fadlu Davids will need to be intentional with their game plan, and they will need to deep dive on vast issues that can be visibly seen that they are affecting the club, and two of those problems are the attacking and the defensive options that the club has to work upon, and mostly they will need to work harder on their defenders as they concede goals against the team.

The Namibian star player Peter Shalulile was too much to handle by the Pirates defenders, and looking at how he has scored those two goals they could have been avoided, should Thulani Hlatshwayo and Happy Jele did the man to man marking which could have made things harder for Shalulile. Orlando Pirates interim coach Fadlu Davids might still be speaking optimistically that they still have a chance to win a league title, and Mamelodi Sundowns shouldn't be crowned as DStv Premiership champions just because they have won 2-0 against them just recently.

The only thing that can help Orlando Pirates to transition to the top of the league table is only if they avoid defeat, and one thing that can guarantee them a championship title is only if they win and get maximum points for their DStv Premiership games. If Davids and Ncikazi have not learnt a lesson in the Sundowns game they will be shocked by various defeats in the long run.
