Segolela: VV's getting it right

Johannesburg - Tlou Segolela believes new coach Vladimir Vermezovic's decision to rotate the Orlando Pirates players has helped bring the best out of squad.

According to the website, the Buccaneers kept their top-three ambitions in the PSL on track after edging Soweto rivals Moroka Swallows 1-0 on Saturday, with Segolela heading home the only goal of the game.

The result left the Sea Robbers fourth in the standings, four points behind Bidvest Wits, who currently occupy the final CAF Confederations Cup qualifying position, and Segolela has lauded the new coach's impact for helping the team progress as a unit.

"I think the coach is doing something great. No one gets a guaranteed place in the team and you can see that those who get to play are giving their all to justify their inclusion in the squad," he told Pirates' official website.

"You can only improve your game if you play - the new coach is giving me a chance to play and that is why I'm able to do the business for the team."

Pirates are virtually out of the running in the PSL this term, with 12 points separating them and leaders Kaizer Chiefs with only eight games remaining, although Segolela insist the team will not give up fighting for the crown until the final whistle is blown in May.

"The race will go until the last day. We will play with all we have and we will see how it ends. Our fans have to be with us all the way," he concluded.
