Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler said he feels the Gods were not on their side after playing against SuperSport United.
Tinkler said they created all the chances but the decision-making was poor and it was as struggle to get the back of the net.
"I don’t think the Gods were on our side for this one," he said after the match.
"It’s actually the second time we play SuperSport here where the lights go out, and co-incidentally we lose both games, so I don’t know if there’s a bad juju here, maybe?
"Disappointed obviously the way we conceded the goal last night. If you look at it overall, it’s the only two chances they created was Boxall, he had a header from a corner, and then from the free kick.
"We’ve never practiced looking to play this high-line off-side rule on a wide free-kick, and I have no idea why the players opted to do that, and we got punished for it, and we struggled to get back in it.
"Today we obviously had to throw everything at them, we went for the two strikers, we made Patrick Phungwayo play almost more as a winger than actually a fullback, we pushed numbers forward, we were obviously going to be a little weak at the back, because we might get caught on the counter.
"I thought we created the chances, but the decision-making was a bit poor for me.
"We had a chance to get back in the game, and at least collect the point, but you know what I’m still proud of the boys, they got the right mentality, the right character, they worked hard so we got to bounce back and hopefully get the right result against Chippa.”
