Erasmus: One game at a time

Cape Town - Orlando Pirates striker Kermit Erasmus is confident the Buccaneers can still challenge for the Absa Premiership title this season, despite a poor start.

Pirates are 14 points behind league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns, having only managed to win four of their 13 league games this season so far.

The Soweto Giants faced a tough fixture list in the first half of the season due to an impressive run to the CAF Confederation Cup final, which many speculated may have affected their league form.

That suggestion is reinforced by the club's improved performances this year and they remain unbeaten so far in 2016, including an impressive recovery from three goals down to draw 3-3 with Maritzburg United last weekend.

"The belief is always there. When you play for Orlando Pirates you always have to believe that you can win things," Erasmus told KickOff.

"The league is still open and there is the Nedbank Cup to play for. We are taking it one game at a time; we're not getting ahead of ourselves.

"We just want to get our confidence back and you saw against Maritzburg - it was confidence booster. We haven't lost this year so it is good start for us.

"We can only climb up the table. We know we have the depth in the squad; we have the talent and capabilities of the players. We will take one game at the time, try and get the points and go," the striker concluded.
