I was extremely upset at half-time - Tinkler

Cape Town - Eric Tinkler bemoaned his Orlando Pirates side's first-half performance in their draw with Martizburg United in Pietermaritzburg.

Despite producing the mother of all comebacks, Tinkler remained disappointed with the two points lost, citing that his charges did not play according to instructions in the first stanza which led to the Buccaneers conceding three early goals.

With their backs against the wall, the Buccaneers bounced back from a three goal deficit to earn a point in a six-goal thriller against the Team of Choice.

“To me it was not a crucial point gained but it was two points lost," said Tinkler on the club's website.

“And I was extremely upset at half time because they were not playing according to the instructions I gave them. But we managed to fix one or two things at half time and it worked for us.

“They (players) really showed a lot of character and that’s why we managed to equalise in the second-half.”

The Buccaneers still have six points to play for this month, against Jomo Cosmos and arch rivals Kaizer Chiefs, and the 45-year-old tactician is confident that his troops’ will climb the ladder on the log.

“I’m very confident ahead of the two games left for this month. We’ll play against Cosmos and the derby against Chiefs.”

“We have recognised few errors and we need to work on them and the team is more after Saturday’s come back and we just have to stay positive going forward.”
