Goals from Thembinkosi Lorch and Siphesihle Ndlovu guided Pirates to a 2-1 success over their cross-town rivals on Saturday afternoon.

The German coach was happy to walk away with three points and hailed the performances of Lorch and Richard Ofori.

“Tough game, first half I think they were the better team. Second half we have the goal and then we played more on the counter-attack. I think we also had opportunities to score earlier," Zinnbauer told SuperSport.

“I have to see the pictures, but I think, penalties not one I think in the first half also. But the biggest thing for me was close to the end in the first half with Makaringe and Lorch completely alone.

“I think they make the second goal then the game is close to finish for us in the second half. But now you see Kaizer Chiefs have the quality especially with long high balls in the box and the crosses.

“Always crossing, crossing, crossing it is not easy to defend but compliments keeper Richard [Ofori] made a good game.

“The defensive lines also, it’s not easy against these guys. Lorch is man of the match. I think it was a top game in offence and defence. I think in the channel you have a team effort today and deserved the three points,” he added.
