Orlando Pirates were behind early in the first half after a stunning strike from Thabo Nodada, which was followed by a goal from Kermit Erasmus, who capitalised from a defensive lapse to put City 2-0 up inside the first 10 minutes.
Rhulani Mokoena claimed a solitary victory since ascending to the hot seat in August, Mokwena said he wasn’t feeling the pressure yet, and insisted that the team is putting up its best efforts to turn the situation around.
“Pressure? No. More passion than anything, even with regards to the supporters that I speak to after matches and the amount of emotional attachment from them,” said Mokwena.
“I think they see that we’re giving the best that we can and unfortunately when it’s your turn, it’s your turn and you’ve just got to see yourself through this period.
“We’ve got to be brave; we can’t host pity parties [because] the universe doesn’t have a budget for that. So, we don’t feel sorry for ourselves, we just have to keep going. We have to be strong and that’s it.” Rhulani Mokwena
