The Buccaneers looked to be heading for a 2-0 victory in the
first leg of their CAF Confederations Cup clash at Orlando Stadium on Saturday,
thanks to goals from Lehlohonolo Majoro and Rooi Mahamutsa.
However, they conceded in injury time as Happy Jele put the
ball in his own net to hand URA a lifeline ahead of the crucial return leg.
While Jele had the last touch on the ball the led to the own
goal, Tinkler felt it was Jomo Rakhale who was ultimately to blame.
"We were disappointed that we conceded the goal in the
dying minutes of the game," Tinkler is quoted as saying by KickOff.
"We were retaining position well at that stage,
probably inexperience from Jomo Rakhale who looked to make another pass when in
those moments you should be looking to waste time.
"That comes from his inexperience of playing in this
type of competition. Hopefully, he learns from that.
"I have had a conversation with him. It was vitally
important for us to have kept a clean sheet."
Looking ahead to the second leg of the tie, Tinkler feels it
would be foolish to try and protect a slender lead away from home.
He added: "2-1, yes not what we wanted but we have to
go to Kampala and defend that result. It is vitally important that we go there with a
positive attitude and not look to defend. It is vitally important that we get a goal because
that will change the complexion."
