Terrence Dzvukamanja's debut goal was enough to earn Pirates a 1-0 win over ten-man Cape Town City at the Orlando Stadium.

While they did walk away with the win, the German tactician was not pleased with his side's failure to kill of the game.

"It was a difficult, hard game for us. Good structure from the opponent on defence and offense. They are a team that is always on fire on the counter-attack," Zinnbauer told SuperSport after the game.

"But it was the first game. The first game is not easy for any team and we saw the structure was good on defence but on offence not so good.

"We had a lot of chances .We could have decided the game before the 90 minutes. Usually we finish the game off. When you don't get the second goal, you get problems. Maybe you saw it yourself. We had a lot of counterattacks and chances but the final shot or final pass was not good. That's the next step we have to work on.

"Three weeks is not enough time to get the system in to the team. We have a lot of new players. The new players were not in the training sessions. Only one week together. And then you see the last step or moment is not hundred percent.

"It's a cup game. It's different to a league game. I'm sure next week when we play in the league we will have more structure."

Don't think this team was selected by the coach when he ssys some new players did not trsin with us. Sundowns once gave Pirates 6 when Palacios was told who to select.
