Cape Town - Orlando Pirates lost 2-1 to Zamalek of Egypt on Saturday in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage game but still remain second in group B just behind Zamalek. 

Captain Oupa Manyisa said though it was sad that they lost the game but the fight is not over yet.

He said they still have games to play and if they can win at least three of the remaining four games they can still qualify for the semi-finals of the tournament. 

"It's sad that we lost the game but it's not over yet," said Manyisa.

"We have four games to play and that's what we should be thinking about.

"We want to reach the finals and if we can win three games from the remaining four then we can qualify for free semi-finals and fight for the finals.

"We have to keep on fighting until the end," the Bafana Bafana midfielder concluded.
