Practice makes perfect for Bucs' Lorch

Orlando Pirates forward Thembinkosi Lorch credits work on the training ground for the chemistry created between himself and other the Bucs players after the club beat Platinum Stars 2-0 on Saturday.

The Sea Robbers are unbeaten in 2018 and have won three of their four matches played while drawing the other. The victory over struggling Dikwena came about due to a strike from Justin Shonga and a goal from Lorch at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng.

Luvuyo Memela assisted the 24 year old's 73rd minute finish as coach Milutin Sredojevic's men condemned Stars to a fourth defeat in a row. The outfit from Mayfair have now moved into second position in the Premiership behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

Speaking to SuperSport after the game, Lorch said: "We knew it was not going to be an easy game against Platinum Stars. But in the end, we had a plan and our plan worked because we got the three points.

The played added that his goal came from moves rehearsed on the training ground under the watchful eye of Sredojevic, saying: "The goal came from the training ground.

"I knew that Meme was going to play that ball in that angle so I positioned myself well to score. So it was practiced at training."
