It’s only half-time – Ncikazi

“The game is not over, it’s half time. We are only leading,” Orlando Pirates co-coach Mandla Ncikazi said after the first leg victory.

“When we go back home they can do the same thing. We’ll treat the game very seriously. It’s important to understand the dynamics of African football, a goal away from home is important.

“We’ll treat the match as 0-0, respect them because they are a good team and try and proceed into the next round.

“But Orlando Pirates are not going to change anything by doing less, we will prepare for a very good team.

“I’m just greedy that we could have scored more goals so that at least we know we are settled. But I’m gracious that we are still having the two goals.”
