Palacios Remains Confident 23/12/03
Orlando Pirates care-taker coach Augusto Palacios believes the Bucanneers can still defend their Castle Premiership title despite trailing leaders Kaizer Chiefs by seven points.

The Black and White half of Soweto are currently in sixth place in the league having played 13 matches, the same as Amakhosi.

We are in with a chance, like any of the teams in the top of the table because there is little room for mistakes there. If you slip up someone else will take advantage, Palacios told This Day newspaper on Tuesday.

The Peruvian-born coach enjoyed an encouraging start after taking over from Roy Barreto earlier in the season, coming from two goals down against Santos to force a draw and beating high-flying Moroka Swallows.

However, a defeat to archrivals Chiefs in the Soweto Derby two weeks ago halted the sea Robbers climb up the table, but Palacios is not too concerned about the result.

We are playing good football and results show we have a chance, as I believe do any of the teams in the top six, he is quoted to have said.

Every club is playing to win the title and , as defending champions, we are always under pressure to keep up our standard.

Pirates next game is scheduled for January 4 when they take on rookies Silver Stars in Polokwane.

Two homes games at the Johannesburg Stadium against Wits and Jomo Cosmos follow on 10 and 31 January respectively.
