Pirate coach Mandla Ntsikazi said it was important for the technical team to get the players' spirits up as soon as possible as the team is ready for Tuesday's game against a rejuvenated Maritzburg United, returning from a win, to boost morale. back to relegated league Barock FC in the last game of the weekend.

“Losing like that is very sad. As coaches we have a responsibility to educate the players, we play a league game on Tuesday and they are the same players who have to play. It has not been a good season for our team and the reasons are the same as you saw today when a game was dominated the way we dominated but the end result, the final product, is not the same as you play. "Players are coming back, Pirates are coming back, Pirates can play better than today, that's a great brand and we just need to prove it on the pitch," Ntsikazi said of the Pirates media department.

Following Tuesday's game in Orlando, the Bucs will travel to KwaZulu-Natal for Friday's Chatsworth Stadium against Royal AM, while the final game of the season for the Houghton-based side will be played next Monday against SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium.
