Iqraam Rayners' first-half strike was enough to hand newly promoted side a 1-0 win at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday afternon.

The Buccaneers have only won one league game since Mokwena took over from Milutin Sredojevic on interim basis in August, while Mokwena's only other victory came against Stellenbosch in the Telkom Knockout last weekend

"Congratulations to Stellenbosch, we go back to work, that's all we can do," Mokwena reacted on SuperSport,

When pressed for comment on his side's loss in the Mother City, he simply congratulated Steve Barker's troops once again.

Mokwena did have a messsage for the Buccaneers supporters after his side struggled to get the goal after registering 23 efforts at goal.

"To the Pirates fans they must just keep on supporting their players, keep supporting their team, the team loves them, they love the team but you have to be gracious in defeat and accept that 23 shots at goal, 70 percent almost possession, doesn't win you games. Congratulations to Stellenbosch,"
