Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler admits he is
frustrated to see his side still conceding "silly goals" after
allowing a set-piece to sully their 3-1 win over Polokwane City on Saturday.
Read: Tinkler relieved with win
The Buccaneers were leading 3-0 after half-time at the
Orlando Stadium when Tshepo Tema pulled one back for Rise and Shine after
heading home from Jabu Maluleke's delivery.
And, although the Sea Robbers managed to hold City off for
the remainder of the second period, Tinkler was none too impressed by the
manner in which they conceded.
"It's strange that people say we have a problem with
our strikers," said Tinkler after the win, which left Pirates fourth in
the standings, 12 points adrift of leaders Kaizer Chiefs ahead of next
weekend's Soweto derby.
"Our problem has always been at the back, where we have
conceded silly goals. There is nothing wrong with us going forward."
Tinkler, whose team are now the top scorers in the
Premiership with 31 goals this term, added: "I told the players at
half-time that we had to stay focused because they would keep coming at us.
“I was angry that we conceded a sloppy goal."
