"It was a difficult one and the conditions didn't do justice for us. The ball was fast, too quick and they are used it. But,"
"We conceded a goal with a cross and I think we should have done better in terms of communicating and such fouls and such critical areas,"
Orlando Pirates top midfield star Ben Motshwari has mentioned the weather as one of the factors that contributed to their frustrating draw against Stellenbosch FC in the DSTV Premiership yesterday afternoon
The draw for Orlando Pirates against Stellenbosch FC is not a completely bad result considering the fact that Stellenbosch FC are an extremely well coached and organized football team
And for Orlando Pirates there are still some encouraging signs of the way that the club want to go about their business this season in terms of playing style as the Soweto Giants have the potential to have a pretty decent season
That is of course granted that their rivals Kaizer Chiefs also have an off season but after a resounding victory against Maritzburg United during this week's round of DSTV Premiership fixtures that possibility seems unlikely
As this season the top 3 for the first time in a long time could be Mamelodi Sundowns, Orlando Pirates, Kaizer Chiefs as they are the three best teams in the country
