Pirates started the Absa Premiership season with a point after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Highlands Park on Saturday evening.

Mlambo picked up the Man of the Match award for his display, and says the club are looking to challenge on all fronts this season.

“We definitely want to compete for everything that’s there for us," Mlambo told SuperSport after the game.

"It’s not good to be easy but we have the backing of a great squad, great technical team and management. With such a great atmosphere from the supporters anything is possible."

Mlambo added that the team were not happy about dropping points against the Lions of Teranga on hoe soil.

“I’d like to thank the supporters for coming out to support us. It was definitely not an easy game. It’s the first game of the season, we missed our chances we could have buried it but we were unfortunate," he added.

“I’m grateful that my teammates, the technical team have made put all the effort it’s just that we didn’t get the results we wished to get. A 1-1 draw is not a bad start. But we’re not happy about it. We definitely deserved to win this game.

“In preparing for the for the new season the technical team, management put on a great effort for the pre-season. I reckon we are the only team that made the pre-season that we had. We went to Mpumalanga, we went to Zambia and we came back to play in Cape Town. It shows they’re [management] supporting us. We just need to reward them in the field of play.”

You always compete for everything and end up getting nothing.

The Hawks are reviving cases of fraud against Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung and his business associates, Herbert Theledi and Marius Grib, after they allegedly submitted fake documents in their company Lefika's bid to design Mbombela Stadium. Sunday World can exclusively reveal a meeting was held at the offices of Hawks' Brigadier Zama Basi in Pretoria on June 20, where a decision to resuscitate the case was taken. Those who attended the meeting included Advocate Patrick Nkuna of the Specialised Commercial Crime Unit and investigating officer Warrant Officer Mashudu Mashamba. Nkuna guided the police in their investigation on the cases and also led the prosecution against Motaung and his business associates. He was almost removed from the case after complaining he had received conflicting instructions from the NPA about whether the case was supposed to have been heard in the Mpumalanga High Court or regional court.

Don't count your chickens before they are hatched sonny boy. Remember there are other 15 teams in the league that you guys have to compete against and they all want to compete in all competitions this season. Take note you want us to believe that it was your wish that you draw against Highlands Park but the truth is they competed in that game and you have to come back from behind. soccer is played in the field of play not on the TV screens after the game has ended.Wake up and smell the coffee.

Well said Mr Mlambo,indeed we played well yesterday our game transition and game management was superb it just that,that howler made by Sandilands spoiled everything but either than that I foresee greater things coming upon our way if we will continue performing this way...
