Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Eric Tinkler was left unhappy with his side's performance in their Telkom Knockout last 16 clash against Tuks in Soweto on Friday night.
Pirates won the game 2-1 to advance to the tournament quarter-finals, but Tinkler was not happy with many aspects of the game.
"I always knew it would be a tough game and that Tuks would come motivated and the players would play above themselves," Tinkler told Kickoff.com.
"They did that, especially in the first half, they put us under pressure and didn't give us time and space on the ball.
"We were incapable of holding onto the ball, we started to panic and kicking ball in the air looking to clear the lines. We were losing ball cheaply.
"In the second half they came to us more. We didn't put pressure on their players and prevent the crosses. This was not a good performance by us."
