Cape Town - Following Orlando Pirates late surge against SuperSport United, Gordon Igesund has questioned the amount of stoppage time added.

According to KickOff, Igesund believes his side controlled everything in the first half as Dino Ndlovu missed easy chances but it was the added time that frustrated the former Mamelodi Sundowns coach.

"Six minutes of extra time, I don't know where that came from,” said Igesund.

“For every sub they allow 30 seconds, that's one-and-a-half minutes.

“Where did six come from? But anyway, what can we do? All I can say to Pirates, well done, and we wait for our next game."

Sifiso Myeni’s stoppage time strike secured a 2-1 win for Vladimir Vermezovic’s side as the Buccaneers find themselves back in the top four with 17 points and a game in hand - SuperSport relinquishes their top eight spot as they occupy 10th position.

Orlando Pirates now turn their attention to a tricky encounter against University of Pretoria on Wednesday, November 26 in the PSL.

Matsatsansta, on the other hand, have a midweek break as they preparte to face off against Platinum Stars in Sunday's Telkom Knockout final.
