For a third time season, Pirates got the better of their Soweto rivals after claiming a 2-1 win at Orlando Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Lorch managed to get the opening goal on the day and also went on to scoop the Man of the Match award on the day.

"Firstly I'd like to thank the man above for the talent he has given me, I promised that I will honour it," Lorch told SuperSport after the game.

"I've been playing as a number nine, I've been playing as a number nine since the game against Maritzburg [United] so the coach told me I have to play there because we don't have strikers and I had to do the job.

"We've been practicing it to play the ball on top because we know that defensively they're slow, so ja that how it [the goal] came," he added.
