Having seemingly gotten their Absa Premiership campaign back on track after a poor start to the season and with the arrival of the new coach, Josef Zinnbauer, Orlando Pirates are on a 7-match unbeaten run and have scored 18 goals in the process.
But, winger Vincent Pule says they can’t really afford to take their foot off the pedal.
“We don’t need to be complacent and start showing off, we are on the right track and we will keep on fighting,” said Pule.
The last time Pirates had a bitter taste of defeat in the league was back in November 2019 at the hands of archrivals Kaizer Chiefs (3-2).
“Our confidence is back; we will keep on performing and I think it is possible for a top 3 finish,” added Pule.
“The coach wants the heart more than the talent you know. I think we have shown character. We are working hard as a team, we have a good spirit now…first round we didn’t play well, at least this round we know where we are going, now it’s better, we are scoring more goals, we are scoring quicker goals, we get a lot of chances.”
Pirates have now won 4 consecutive games under the German coach Zinnbauer.
“We are winning games, we needed luck first round, we didn’t have luck and now our luck is back. We have to match the efforts of the other teams you know, when you are playing against Pirates, they come here, they gonna fight. I think we have to do more than them.”
The Soweto giants will be looking to extend their unbeaten run as they take on Chippa United in their next Absa Premiership game on Saturday, at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, kickoff at 18:00.
