The absence of these two players costed Orlando Pirates a win

Orlando Pirates extended their winless run to four matches across all competitions after dropping points at ten-man Maritzburg United on Wednesday evening.

Goodman Mosele and Ntsako Makhubela were not included in the matchday squad, but there were starts for Bongani Sam, Terrence Dzvukamanja and Linda Mntambo.

Linda Mntambo, Terrence Dzvukamanja and Bongani Sam were handed starts fort he visitors, while Travis Graham captained United on his return to the side.There was noo dilly-dallying following kick-off as Pirates went on the prowl from a galloping header in the box by Olisah Ndah and Tshegofatso Mabasa’s close-range shot which Marcel Engelhardt saved.

The first real piece of action came in the eighth minute. Sam took an inswinging corner which nearly creeped into the far corner before Maritzburg keeper Marcel Engelhardt punched the ball away. Soon after, Tshegofatso Mabasa was one-on-one with goalkeeper Marcel Engelhardt after a piercing pass from Mntambo, but his shot from a tight angle was blocked.

Josef Zinnbauer was not the problem after all because l can't see any improvement it's like we are going backwards these coaches must try to find a team that will play every week not changing players in each and every game. This is a confused Orlando Pirates team of this generation.

The way i used to love Pirates, i'll beat up my dog whenever Pirates loses, you should see my dog now, happy and healthy because I no longer care if Pirates wins or loses.Honestly speaking pirates dominated the game but lucky was not our side.We have 2 good assistants coach so we need hire a coach for them.
