Golden Arrows pulled a shocker after outplaying Orlando Pirates and end up winning the game by 2-0 on Tuesday afternoon in Durban. This wasn't expected as Pirates defeated their archrivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto Derby by 2-1. Hence Pirates were expected to win against Arrows, however, their game plan was matched and outsmarted by Abafana Bes'thende. Now, with eight points off DStv Premiership log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, things get tougher for Bucs.


Now, Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer has come in defence for his player Thembinkosi Lorch as he felt that him missing the penalty had nothing with pressure, as he's been in hectics matches. It's just that the game against Arrows needed more luck on their end to win it, however, nothing worked on their end.

"It's not a pressure for him, he's an experienced player, he scored in the MTN8 the penalty and now it's football, you need luck in this game. We had 20 minutes more, we couldn't score," said Zinnbauer talking to SuperSport TV.


The German tactician said that it was visible in the first half that the game was gone from them, although they tried to catch up but it didn't work. One thing that Arrows did well is that they took their chances and punished Pirates. In the game, the Buccaneers created opportunities to score, but it wasn't their day. After Lorch missed the penalty, the team was affected, but he's a top player that scores goals, it wasn't his day. The loss to Arrows did affect the Pirates players but they will have to look forward and keep fighting for the league title.


"We lost the game in the first half, we had opportunities to score, Lorch is a top player, normally he scores but today it was not possible, all the players are frustrated. You saw after the game the heads go down," concluded Zinnbauer talking to SuperSport TV. 

Zinnbauer felt that the loss against Arrows wasn't his players' intentions, as they fought until the last minute of the game. It's just that when they made a mistake it then resulted in a goal and that dismantled the team.
