Cape Town - Orlando Pirates anchorman Edwin Gyimah insists his team needs to pull up their socks, following their 2-0 defeat to Chippa United on Wednesday.

The loss left the Buccaneers four games without a win, and Gyimah feels everyone in Eric Tinkler's side need to work very hard to help them get back on track.

"They played very well," Gyimah said of the Chilli Boys. "I think they are very good, we have to respect the opposition.

"I think, I don't know what to say... I think our team spirit is going down. We need to lift our spirit. It can't only be one or two people raising their game in the game, we have to all come out as a team.

"We have to be fair, we didn't play well. We didn't come to the party because those guys were enjoying themselves. There wasn't any pressure, we were not pressing them. We have to be aggressive all the time.

"Even in Europe these big teams, the superstars, they press, they fight very hard. I think in each and every game, even if it is a striker, midfielder, defender, we need to press and work very hard.

"We are not happy. It is four games now without a win. We just have to sit down and talk to ourselves very well to see where the problem is."
