Orlando Pirates’ MultiChoice Diski Challenge assistant coach Mandla Qhogi has lauded the team’s progress in the Reserve League.
Pirates beat Maritzburg United 3-0 in their MDC match at the Rand Stadium on Saturday with two goals from Boitumelo Radiopane, as well as the other from Simo Bophela doing the job for the home side.
Bophela converted from the penalty spot after a foul on Lethabo Mazibuko inside the box late in the match.
After the win, the Buccaneers are in third place on the Reserve League log with 57 points, and are behind Bidvest Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns respectively, who are tied on 58 points.
Meanwhile, Bucs’ MDC team’s assistant coach Qhogi lauded the side’s progress in trying to close the gap with log leaders.
“We (are) breathing (down on) people’s necks not through the wound,” the coach wrote on Twitter.
