PSL REVIEW: BENNI BAILED OUT AS PIRATES SUFFER SHOCK DEFEAT

AmaZulu and Bloemfontein Celtic went head to head in league at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium and blockbuster ensured.

Benn McCarthy’s Usuthu were pegged by in the closing stages by Harris Tchilimbou’s second before a stunning free kick bailed out his side as they left with all three points.

“What a great team to play against, Bloem Celtic are very open, very attack-minded so you know they make you play your football, you go at them and they also come at you,” he said.” said McCarthy.

“If your defence it not watertight you’re going to end up conceding and we conceded three goals, something that we want to work on and we want to get better.

“Because if we are to challenge the bigger teams we can’t concede three goals the way we did after cruising in the match the way that we did.”

The second meeting in two weeks between Golden Arrows and Orlando Pirates went in favour of the hosts.

Pule Mmodi scored a brace to put Arrows into fourth on the table, a place above Pirates.

The result left Josef Zinnbauer ruing his side’s chances.

“First-half we were not on the field, we came in the game a little bit but in the final third we could not find the solution. It was frustrating for me and in the second-half we changed the players, we changed the system,” Zinnbauer told SuperSport TV.

“But you don’t score, you have the opportunities, a penalty, I think when you get a draw [equaliser] with a penalty then it’s a different game.

“But we make a mistake in the defence, then can score and then the game is open. We tried what we can but we lost the game. I think it’s deserved for the opponent.”
