Rhulani bemoans Bucs mental weakness

Orlando Pirates head coach Rhulani Mokwena believes his side buckled under the pressure in the 2-2 draw with Baroka FC in Limpopo on Saturday.

Pirates let slip a two-goal lead and Mokwena admitted it was 'two points dropped' and suggested that his side have a mental weakness.

"Ja we've spoken about it of course, we try to be consistent and pull through with two matches [remaining before the Christmas break] but ja we'll work on it, we'll just keep going," Mokwena told KickOff.

Linda Mntambo and Kabelo Dlamini scored excellent goals but Mokwena said those strikes were overshadowed by the end result.

"Unfortunately you don't remember the goals and the type of football... I mean there was one team on the pitch to be honest, until it was 2-1 and we showed psychological frailties," said the Buccanneers mentor.

"But yeah, it is what it is and we just have to... when it was two nil to be honest I felt like it was going to be three.

"[Vincent] Pule had a good chance, [Gabadinho] Mhango had a good chance to make it three, four... and then the penalty that they played on and they went on to score on the other side.

"So it's football, these things happen. It's two points dropped of course."
