The win sees Pirates remain in second spot, one point behind league leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

“We knew that they were going to come at us and we knew they are coming here with no pressure. We knew that the pressure is on us, but I’m happy that we fought hard.

“Sometimes it’s not easy. It’s not about playing good football. It’s about digging deep and making sure you come away with three points.

“It helped us a lot because it gave us courage, belief and we knew we had a 60 percent chance of going all the way and winning this game."
