Cape Town - Orlando Pirates coach Rhulani Mokwena insists he is not
concerned about the fresh criticism he's received from fans after dropping
points in Polokwane.
The Buccaneers looked set to claim a timely victory at
Baroka on Saturday as they led 2-0 thanks to Linda Mntambo and Kabelo
Dlamini's goals either side of the half-time break.
However, they let their concentration slip towards the end
of the game and conceded twice in the space of eight minutes to draw 2-2.
Mokwena has come under fire from some Pirates supporters who
feel it is time for the young coach to be replaced at the helm, but he insists
it doesn't faze him and that the team will keep fighting.
"I don't control that. I can't speak about the fans. I
speak about what we can do," Mokwena told the media.
"What we can do is try our best all the time. The
Pirates fans know one thing about us, we give our best for the badge. We fight
for the badge."
He added: "When you're leading 2-0 it feels like a
loss. We give good games, we give games with a lot of goals and a good
spectacle so hopefully, the crowd enjoyed the spectacle."
The Soweto giants are sixth in the Absa Premiership
standings, seven points below the top two, having won only four of their 13
league games this season.
