We need to score more – Ncikazi

“Let’s thank the players for the win from the situation we’re coming from. I saw a confident team,” Orlando Pirates coach Mandla Ncikazi told SuperSport.

“My only concern is that we could have scored more, that’s the area you wish. If you get all these opportunities that come your way, score them.

“But having said that we won the match, we got the three points, that’s important for me today. Nothing was different in how we approached the game.

Sometimes you’ll win the league and you are on top of the game but you’ll lose your job. So, it’ not my decision.

“The only difference was that today Orlando Pirates ook the chances that we created, differently from other matches.

“Today we scored and in other matches we don’t. I thought that was the only difference.”
