Gcaba Hails Bucs' Teamwork After Celtic Win

Man of the Match, Ayanda Gcaba praised Orlando Pirates' teamwork, following their 2-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup.
 
 
Goals from Abbubaker Mobara and Thamsanqa Gabuza booked the Buccaneers' spot in the semi-finals of the competition.
 
"It was a tough game, we knew that Celtic was going to come here looking for a win to advance to the next round," Gcaba said after the game.
 
"We had to grind another hard win for us to be in the semi-finals and we did it through teamwork."
 
When asked about Pirates' vulnreability at the back, he added," We do score and we also concede, but we try not to concede as many goals as they create. We try by all means to close them to seal it at the back and make it easier for the goalkeeper."
 
The draw for the semi-finals will take place on Monday evening.
