Orlando Pirates coach Josef Zinnbauer insists that his side ‘did all that is possible to win the game’ following their goalless draw against Bidvest Wits on Saturday.
The draw leaves the Buccaneers in third place in the league standings, while the Clever Boys sit in fifth place on the log standings, respectively.
Having not scored a single goal since the resumption of the league, Zinnbauer is happy that his side are creating chances in the final third but admits he would be concerned if they didn’t create any opportunities.
‘It was 50/50, we had the dominance from the game, sure a little luck in one chance from Wits but we had a lot of chances. If you can’t score you can’t win the game, when you see the Man of the Match is the goalkeeper [Ricardo Goss], that is the language,’ Zinnbauer told SuperSport TV.
‘We need a goal; we didn’t get but we can’t say it was bad. We did all that is possible to win the game, yeah in the moment we need the goal but when the goal is coming, it’s easier for us to win a game, you get more confidence.
‘That’s true [a concern for not scoring], I said it before, when you don’t have the chances to score then that’s a problem for me as a coach but I don’t know how many shots at goal we had today, last game the same. Today it was the goalkeeper, two big chances and other chances and the last game was the same,’ he continued.
‘A lot of chances but we don’t score at the moment. We have chances and that is good for me. The goal is coming. Don’t forget we played against a good team in the league, the last game was Sundowns, it was the same, top team in the league. Now we have to see what’s coming, a smaller team that is not at the top and then we have to see what will happen.
‘But it’s normal to have a top team and it’s not easy to win the game. We do all things, we don’t have the full points and that is not good for us,’ Zinnbauer concluded.
