“We will have to keep grinding results. It’s important to get points at this stage of the season and we will take every game as a cup final,” De Sa told Goal.

“Pirates can still finish top of the log, but we are now relying on other teams’ results,” said De Sa.

The Buccaneers have managed only one win in their last nine league games and they suffered their fourth defeat of the season at the hands of Chippa United over a week ago, but De Sa is confident that they will turn the corner.

“We haven’t been doing well domestically, but we pretty sure that it cannot last longer. Pirates is a big team and the results are very important. I am confident we will turn the corner,” added De Sa.
