Orlando Pirates coach Rulani Mokwena has heaped praise on his players despite their loss in Cape Town at the weekend.
The Buccaneers lost 1-0 to Stellenbosch FC at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday. The Soweto giants are 10th on the Absa Premiership log after two wins in eight matches thus far this season.
Despite the loss to Stellenbosch, Mokwena praised the Pirates players for a ‘gallant performance’ in the Mother City.
“We’re trying to improve our overall performance and overall results whether it’s at home or away. We try to win every match at Pirates. That’s the responsibility. But gallant performance. These players are unbelievable. They are really unbelievable,” Mokwena told the media after the match.
Bucs’ next match will be against Highlands Park on Tuesday at Makhulong Stadium.
