Cape Town - Orlando Pirates midfielder Thabo Rakhale feels that the result against Wits could have gone either way, after their 1-0 loss at Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday.

The Buccaneers came into the match on a high on the back of a three-match winning run in the Absa Premiership.

However, Wits edged the Soweto giants after a defensive error led to a 28th-minute strike from James Keene, which proved to be the difference on the night.

"I think it was the same game for both teams, physical and very fast. The conditions didn't make it easy but we gave our all," Rakhale told KickOff.

"There's wasn't much in this game and it was always going to come down to a small mistake. It was us this time and we got punished.

"Both teams came into this game on form so it was always going to be tight. We just have to pick our heads up and bounce back."
