Fadlu Davids Reactions After Being Defeated BY Mamelodi Sundowns

 

Orlando Pirates co-coach Fadlu Davids felt the loss of Olisa Ndah did unsettle the side against Mamelodi Sundowns.

Orlando Pirates lost the services of Olisa Ndah at the end of the first half with the game still locked at 0-0 because of injury.

Davids felt the Soweto giants could not recover from conceding two quick goals as they went on to lose 4-1 on Friday evening.

“It was a very good first half from our team, the injury to Ndah unsettled us slightly but normally we’re very good on set-pieces, defending set-pieces and the two set-pieces is what determined the game you know,” Davids told SuperSport after the game.

“Within the first five minutes conceding the first and seven minutes later conceding the second and that changed the game completely. The complexion of the game where we were on top in the first-half and those two goals definitely unsettled us, which we could not recover from.

“With the fantastic first-half we had it was just about consolidating, yes the injury in the last moment of our half-time team talk where Ndah couldn’t continue with a knee injury.

“But that doesn’t take away why we couldn’t defend the set–piece, we didn’t concede this season off a set-piece at all, so we were really stingy in that department and to concede the two goals is what changed the game.

 

“We couldn’t then lift our heads and continue to play the way we played in the first half and that’s really what we have to work on, the mentality, don’t give up. 1-0 up in the first-half keep going, head up, keep strong like you did in the first-half and compete.”
