Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Josef Zinnbauer was bitterly disappointed after his team was knocked out of the Nedbank Cup by Bidvest Wits on Sunday.

The Buccaneers lost 3-2 in a penalty shoot-out after the game finished in a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Orlando Stadium.

The Pirates mentor saw his side fight back from a 2-0 defeat to lead 3-2 in extra-time but the German head coach suffered his first defeat in seven matches in charge of the Soweto giants.

Zinnbauer said after the game: "Ja I'm not happy, we're not in the cup now, we had a big chance, compliments to the team they came back against Wits, it's not a small team, it's a big team and when you come back, we conceded two goals and then you come back and then you go in front, normally you have to win.

"But it is the same as what I said for the last six weeks, we need time to work, the mood is good.

"We're fighting, it was a top game for the supporters, we opened the game but normally you can't lose this game."

Pirates will look to keep their six-match PSL winning run intact when they face Black Leopards away from home on Sunday.
