Orlando Pirates 2:0 Cape Town Spurs – Carling Black Label Cup
The Buccaneers inflicted more pain onto The Urban Warriors. Tapelo Xoki scored a penalty in the second half, which was soon followed by a Kermit Erasmus strike, which sealed the victory for the hosts.
“The league is the most important competition, it goes without saying,” head coach Jose Riveiro spoke.
“Thirty games, 15 away and home against everyone in every circumstance, hot and raining. So, it’s the most important competition and we really want to find our rhythm there.
“Now we have played our fourth competition in two months and a half. We are trying to keep the level in all competitions we play.
“It is difficult mentally to face these kinds of competitions in a very short space of time.
“It doesn’t mean the other tournaments are not important. It is an opportunity to improve the history of the club.
“Our focus now is on AmaZulu, Polokwane City and Cape Town Spurs again because we really want to compete in the league as well.”
