Letsoaka: Max Was Too Good For Pirates

Golden Arrows coach Serame Letsoaka says that his goalkeeper Maximilian Mbaeva was the difference between winning and losing against Orlando Pirates.

Two second half goals from Kudakwashe Mahachi and Gladwin Shitolo handed Arrows a 2-0 win over the Buccaneers in an Absa Premiership match on Wednesday night.

Mbaeva, however, was the outstanding man on the night with numerous crucial saves that kept Pirates at bay.

Speaking after the game, Letsoaka praised his goalkeeper for his efforts and said they are exactly where they want to be on the league table at this point in time.

“We are thrilled with the three points,” said Letsoaka.

“Pirates were on top of the situation and they played well, but fortunately Max (goalkeeper Maximilian Mbaeva) stood between them and victory.

“The few chances we created, the two goals especially, we were able to bury them and we have the three points – we are excited about that.

“It means a lot because when we look at everything we are still on track in terms of what we want to achieve by the end of the year.

“We have 14 points from eight games and it looks good for us – we are on track and we are excited about that.

“The way our team defended against Pirates was outstanding. The team made sure that they defended deep, they defended compactly, they defended in numbers and that was one of the most exciting things for me.

“As a coach you always want to see your team play well when they don’t have the ball and we did that against Pirates.”
