Polokwane City Coach Julio Leal was happy to see his side manage to hold Orlando Pirates to a goalless draw on Wednesday night after missing out on a semi-final spot in the Nedbank Cup.

“It was an interesting match after a bad performance in the Nedbank Cup our first quarter-final appearance. We had a short time to prepare for today. We adjusted and avoided the pressure in the first half and played on the counter, we created some chances as well, but we are happy with the point,” said Leal.

City are 13th on the league standing having amassed 27 points in 26 games. However, the Limpopo based outfit are not really far away from the relegation zone with only seven points separating them and bottom of the log occupants Maritzburg United.

Their next fixture will be up against Mpumalanga Black Aces at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday.
