Arrows will look to play on the counter – Ndah
“I don’t know much about Golden Arrows. From what I’ve seen I think they’ll try and counter-attack, as well as build from the back. On our side, we can use our high press, because it’s been working for us.” Orlando Pirates defender Olisah Ndah said.
“The league has good players. It’s pacey, and quite tactical. So yeah, I think the standard is good. It hasn’t been that tough to adapt. From the way the coaches want us to play, to how the rest of the teams play. It hasn’t been really that difficult for me.
“I’m always looking to improve for the benefit of the Club. Orlando Pirates need silverware or something, because it’s been a while. We have to challenge for the league, we need to start from this weekend and start stringing together some good results,”
