Johannesburg - Moroka Swallows coach Gordon Igesund felt Orlando Pirates were
lucky to snipe a share of the spoils in their Soweto derby on Wednesday
In a lively encounter at Orlando Stadium, Bucs defender Happy
Jele equalised in extra time, cancelling out a spectacular first-half
opener from David Mathebula.
Igesund was naturally gutted by Jele's late sucker punch.
"It's disappointing, I thought we played well tonight - we deserved more than we got out the game," he said.
"Credit to Pirates as they fought back. I think they were lucky but that's football."
The fierce rivals will resume hostilities in a Telkom Knockout quarter-final showdown at Dobsonville Stadium on Saturday.
Igesund warned his men there are no second chances in cup football.
"There are no second chances in the cup. I know it will be a
tough game. We will regroup now, see if there are any injuries and go
from there," he concluded.
