Bucs under pressure
Orlando Pirates winger Daine Klate says the PSL champions are working to rectify their mistakes.
JOHANNESBURG - Orlando Pirates winger Daine Klate says the treble champions are working to rectify their mistakes before their league resumes in two weeks time.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) is in recess because the Confederation of African Football (CAF) teams are on duty.
Pirates are ninth on the log with only a single win in the league so far. And their fans are not happy about their dismal performances. Bucs supporters turned violent after they were eliminated from the MTN8 by SuperSport United last month.
Klate said their biggest problem has been a scoring drought.
"We played four games and we failed to score which is a concern for us. However, we have been creating chances so all is not lost. Hopefully we can use this break to our benefit."
The former SuperSport United player said the Buccaneers have been working hard ahead of their next match against Platinum Stars.
"We've been working hard trying to improve our performance. Hopefully we'll come back revitalised and do well against Platinum Stars."
The league champions were beaten 3-0 by Moroka Swallows over the weekend.
It was their second defeat at Orlando Stadium this season.
Pirates coach Augusto Palacios has taken responsibility for their loss. However, he says he will not resign.
