Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral says that Tendai Ndoro needs to make better decisions in the final third following their 1-1 draw with Polokwane City.

Rise and Shine took the lead in 52nd minute through Puleng Tlolane, however a stoppage-time goal by Tendai Ndoro saw the two teams share the spoils.

Ertugral bemoaned their opposition's goal, which he believes came as a result of his side's lack of organisation.

"I think it was a pretty nice goal but in the end it was a bit lucky," he told SuperSport.

"It made everything we wished to do, and our organisation, turn completely upside down.

"I think when we brought the two wingers [Luvuyo Memela and Riyaad Norodien] in we had the game completely under control.

"Tendai had two or three situations where I wouldn't say he was unlucky but he should just be a little bit more careful with his last decision," he concluded.

The result sees Pirates and Polokwane go level on nine points, having played five and six games respectively. The Soweto giants are currently in third position in the Premiership table.
