Chigova: We Were Unlucky Against Pirates

Polokwane City goalkeeper George Chigova was in fine form for his club as he kept Orlando Pirates at bay with numerous good saves in their Absa Premiership match which ended 0-0 on Tuesday night.

Consequently, the debutant was handed the Man of the Match award for his heroics between the posts and was quick to point out that he never played a game when at SuperSport United.

“I would like to thank God for giving me this opportunity and I also thank my teammates and my family for their support,” said Chigova.

“It has been a long year. Last season I was at SuperSport and I never played a single game, and I thank God that I played against Pirates and I was Man of the Match’.”

Reflecting on the result against Pirates, Chigova believes Pirates were lucky not to lose the match and was happy to keep a clean sheet.

“The coach told us to play the same way we play every game,” said the shot-stopper.

“We were just unlucky against Pirates because we couldn’t score, but we are happy that we got our first clean sheet of the season.

“We want to finish as high as we can on the table and the coach always tells us that we must take it one game at a time, and that is what we will do and we will see where we finish the season – maybe top eight which is what we are planning on doing.”
