Cape Town - Legendary former Orlando
Pirates coach Gordon Igesund has urged the Buccaneers to start winning games
immediately, warning of the threat of Wits.
Igesund claimed that he sees potential in
Milutin Sredojevic's side, but that they will need to gel and improve their
finishing quickly due to the resurgent form of Gavin Hunt's charges.
Wits currently top the Premiership with 12
points from five matches, with the Buccaneers sitting five points behind in
"They are still trying to find the
right combinations as they are in a rebuilding phase. It is also still early
days. They have played only five games," Igesund told Goal website.
"They are struggling in front of goal
thus far. They are able to create goal-scoring opportunities, but finishing has
let them down.
"I believe that once they have found
their strongest combinations and fixed their scoring problem, they will start
winning matches again."
However, Igesund warned: "Having said
that, Pirates should start winning games now because there are teams like Wits
which began the season well. Wits are playing with a lot of confidence and they
know how to win it (the league title)."
The Clever Boys struggled for form in
2017/18, finishing 13th in the league during a season in which they were
defending their title.
However, this season has seen them recapture
some of the magic of 2016/17.
