Cape Town - Maritzburg United coach Ernst Middendorp vented his frustrations after his team relinquished a three goal lead to draw 3-3 with Orlando Pirates.

The mercurial tactician expressed his anger after goals from Mondli Cele, Evans Rusike and Brian Onyango were cancelled out by strikes from Thabo Rakhale, Thabo Matlaba and Kermit Erasmus.

It was the second match in succession where Maritzburg surrendered a lead to draw following the 2-2 result against SuperSport United.

"You cannot be happy. It was a game where we needed to go all out from the beginning until the end of the game," Middendorp told KickOff.

"In the end we deserve probably more than last week Sunday. We probably deserved to win even more today too.

"I have a certain understanding about what 'imploded' means. This is nonsense of the highest level and I don't answer something like this.

"It is incredible despite imploding, and I don't know what the f*** you having in that direction. It is unbelievable that you can't see progress and I can't really answer this."
