Orlando Pirates midfielder Miguel Thiem says they need to bounce back from their latest result as soon as possible following the Buccaneers’ defeat by Chippa United in the DStv Premiership clash at Orlando Stadium on Sunday.

Pirates suffered defeat for the first time this season in just their third game of the campaign, registering one win and a draw before the clash with Chipa.
Tim admitted the Buccaneers could do much better than what they showed against Chippa.
The Soweto giants went down 1-0 to the Chilli Boys, although Pirates looked the better side, creating plenty of goal-scoring chances and enjoying most of the possession.
Chippa scored five minutes before stoppage time through Abdi Banda to take maximum points away to Soweto, their first win of the season under new head coach Dine Clayt.
The Eastern Cape side drew their opening game of the season against Super Sport United before losing 3-1 to Royal AM.
“I have no explanation, really. We had enough chances to win this game comfortably and I think we need to fix that quickly. We have goals for the season and we want to win most of our home games… if we don’t win we have to at least get a point,” said the Pirates midfielder.
“So it’s definitely not the direction we need to go and it’s not the result we wanted. There’s not enough time to sulk, we’re looking forward to the next game and we need to get over it (the loss) quickly.”
The Sea Robbers face Royal Am in a tough away match tomorrow.
Facing Royal will certainly be a tough task for the Buccaneers as the KwaZulu-Natal side will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing 3-1 loss to Stellenbosch FC in their last game.
The Royals had made a great start to the season before losing to the Stelies, with the KwaZulu-Natal club making it two wins after defeating Kaizer Chiefs and Chippa United.
