Davids – They Had Two Moments
Orlando Pirates assistant coach Fadlu Davids has reacted after his team’s 2-0 loss to DStv Premiership leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
Peter Shalulile scored a brace at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon, that saw Pirates lose for the first time in the league.
Davids said while they didn’t start well, he felt his team had the best chances overall.
But he says Sundowns took their moments, and Pirates also had to contend with a good performance from Denis Onyango.
“Very, very nervy start,” Davids said after the game.
“It started immediately with a kick off turnover. And that really put us on the backfoot and not getting our structures right to be able to really put pressure on the ball. But we came back into the game.
“We forced them into the areas we wanted them to play. Think then we created the better chances, they had one across the edge of the box over, but we created good moments, and as the first half progressed, we came into it, we took control and finished the half strong.
“The second half we started and when things are going your way and you dominating without the ball, you having moments to score, we took it too easy, and that lapse of concentration which changed the game completely with them getting the 0-1 lead.
“But they have a really top, top goalkeeper, should have been the man of the match, made two, three top saves.
“And these are lessons that we’ve got to take, to be more clinical in these moments, they had two moments, and really good moments and they took it, that’s the difference on the day.”
