Ajax v Pirates - It was a dull 0-0 draw

Written By Themba Khumalo on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 | Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Another dull, disappointing and frustrating night for Orlando Pirates but little much improved performance with only one short on target at the 67 minutes.

The team lacked sense of urgency by knocking the ball around nicely without penetrating the Ajax Cape Town defence. Players were nervous to commit themselves going forward.

The team lacked cohesion between defence and midfield especial when fighting for the second ball. Ajax collected many second ball without any pressure from Pirates.

The wing play was ineffective as few astray crosses were played but not in the box due to wind. The team lacked vision and creativity in the third quarter of the pitch.

The fighting spirit was bit impressive but tactical change of starting with Joseph Molongoane ahead of Tlou Segolela never made any serious impact whilst ineffective lone striker tactic never created any goalscoring opportunity.

With this mediocre, lackadaisical and lacklustre performance, the only bragging right left now is to play for the top 8 but the championship is gone.
