Davids: They took their moment

Fadlu Davids

Orlando Pirates co-coach Fadlu Davids paid tribute to opponents TS Galaxy following his side's 1-0 DStv Premiership loss on Monday.

Lefa Hlongwane scored the only goal of the DStv Premiership encounter at the Mbombela Stadium after 33 minutes.

The result left Bucs in fourth place on the league standings with 40 points from 27 games and four points adrift of Cape Town City in third place.

Reflecting on the game, Davids told SuperSport: "First of all you want to say congratulations to TS Galaxy. I think their game plan in relation to waiting for one or two moments worked, because they took their moment in the first half.

"That was the only moment they had. But that decisive moment in the box is what has been letting us down especially in the PSL this season."

Davids added: "But like I said in the box we were not good enough today. In the box you have to calm, you have to be decisive, you have to be clear to really finish off the opportunity. That's something that has been eluding us in the PSL. Our CAF form in terms of scoring goals is different but it's not for us to blame the players.

"But like I said congratulations to TS Galaxy, we have to now switch our focus to CAF in the semi-final and go with a confident mood and try to get a result in the first-leg."

Pirates are next in action against Al Ahly Tripoli in the CAF Confederation Cup semi-final first leg on Sunday.
