Cape Town trip is important – Jose

“The game we played on Friday against Sundowns is not going to make a difference at the end of the season about the position on the table.” Orlando Pirates coach Jose Riveiro said as quoted by SuperSport.

“That’s why the league is so important because you must play well in other matches. And go to Cape Town City and get three points and go to other games to try and get three points.

“Had we got three points against Sundowns, it would have helped us to close the gap with one game less.

“But the season is still long. We have played only 14 matches and there are still a lot of points to be played and we will continue to fight until the end.”
