The Sea Robbers enjoyed the better of the exchanges in Stellenbosch, but lacked a bit of a killer instinct in the Cape Town City box
Orlando Pirates will feel they should have claimed more than just a point after they drew 2-2 with Cape Town City at the Danie Craven Stadium in Stellenbosch on Saturday afternoon.

This is the view of former Pirates winger Dikgang Mabalane, in his capacity as an analyst in the SuperSport TV studio.

The Soweto side twice showed good character to come from behind and to claim the draw, thanks to a brace from Vincent Pule.

In general it was the meeting side who made more possibilities on the day, and had they been more clinical, they may have grabbed a triumph.

Not aiding their motivation were some botched opportunities, some great recoveries by home guardian Peter Leeuwenburgh, and the woodwork, which twice acted the hero.

Mabalane feels that his previous club missed an additional two focuses.

“Pirates as a group, all in all, they need to begin dominating matches. For them having such quality in the group, the players, the acquisitions that they have made, I figure they should begin getting greatest focuses now,” the ex-player known as the ‘Eliminator’ in his day, said.

“With Pirates, they will be the more disillusioned. That is to say, pound for pound, they have the players to do it, they have the players to dominate the match for them. At the point when you think about the quality they have in the group against Cape Town City. Not removing a single thing from City, I think they are an efficient group.”

Zakhele Lepasa had some great minutes in the match, yet additionally botched a couple of opportunities. Mabalane figures the youthful striker could wind up under tension, as individual forward Gabadinho Mhango returns from injury.

“Unfortunately the pressure will always be on him,” Mabalane said.

“He’s been given an opportunity. Mhango was injured and he got an opportunity. Yes, he hasn’t done bad, but he needs to start scoring goals.

“Because when Mhango comes back and he starts scoring goals, then he (Lepasa) will probably be relegated to the bench. But I think he works hard, he’s a striker who works hard.”
