” It’s hard we have no striker it’s not Gaba [Mhango] alone, Lepasa, Mabasa and Dzukamanja likewise. We have 4 strikers out for the Kaizer Chiefs game however we can not alter it, it is what it is,” Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer stated.

” We need to deal with the players on the field. We have sufficient opportunities to rating. We had Fortune Makaringe in the very first half [against TS Galaxy] totally alone, but the header was not excellent enough. Perhaps he needs to have chest trapped the ball and scored. Bongani Sam scored for us as a full-back and I more than happy about that, he had a leading video game.

” Azola Tshobeni was available in as well but he was not fresh enough for this video game. He is likewise a player that can score, but he is not a striker. Like I stated, it is what it is. We can not say we do not have adequate gamers that can score versus Kaizer Chiefs. We had the chances, however at the moment we need the power and the body language to rating.”
