Orlando Pirates again flattered to deceive after going 3-0 down against Maritzburg United on Saturday.
Reports suggest a half time pep talk by Eric Tinkler reawakened the sea robbers of their dire need for points. Credit will go to Pirates for fighting from 3-0 down to to earn a 3 all draw.
The Orlando Pirates executive and Eric Tinkler in particular will however not be impressed by the continued trend of dropping points at a time the Soweto giants desperately need to work their way up the standings.
After the match Eric Tinkler was at pains in explaining his players failure to follow instructions, perhaps an indication frustration is begining to get the better of the Orlando Pirates gaffer.
Although Pirates exhibited great fighting spirit in coming back from 3-0 down, the pressure remains on the Soweto giants to begin picking up maximum points at more regular intervals.
