Cape Town - Despite their 1-0 victory over the University of Pretoria on Thursday night, Orlando Pirates head coach Roger De Sa said he was not happy with his team’s performance.
The Sea Robbers continued where they left off on Monday by adding more misery on Steve Barker’s team in an Absa Premiership clash at the Orlando Stadium.

’s second half strike was sufficient for the Buccaneers on the night.
The former Wits mentor shared his overall impressions of the game in a post match interview on SuperSport.
“The first half was a bit better but in the second we didn’t play very well,” said De Sa.
“Again we created a lot of goal-scoring opportunities but still failed to capitalise… anyway we are happy for the three points.”
“RDS” also hinted that the upcoming Christmas break will be good for his charges who have been travelling all over the continent due to their involvement in the CAF Champions League, revealing that they will re-group and come back stronger in January.
“The break will be good for us as we have been travelling a lot this season playing in Africa, but we will take our time and look at all our mistakes and hopefully we will come back fresh and much stronger in January,” he added.
Victory for Pirates moved them up to the 13th place on the overall PSL log
with six games in hand on leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
Before heading into the Christmas break, the Buccaneers will play against Golden Arrows at the same venue on Sunday afternoon.
Kick-off is scheduled for 15:30.
