The Team of Choice managed to halt Pirates' scoring run with a goalless draw at Orlando Stadium on Saturday evening.

Davids believes the draw will serve as a morale booster for his charges.

“It was like a game of chest. We make one move, they make two moves to counter our moves and we had to react. But they are a fantastic side, they pushed us back. We really didn’t want to defend so deep, " Davids told SuperSport after the game.

“They had chances and we knew the spaces they were going to play into. That’s a little bit disappointing, the chances we conceded but it could have been a smash and grab in the end but I’m proud of the players.

“We have to take this as a morale booster, as a win in our eyes and boast confidence from this.

“These players have to believe how good they really are. Tactically, they followed the game to a tee and we could have won it, if we had smash and grab one of the last opportunities then."

“It was quite an aggressive game. He (Fileccia) had to jump out of tackles. That’s why Mohau Mokate came in to give us that presence up front, but all credit to Orlando Pirates.

“Like I said before, not only the most in form team in the league but one of the best teams in the league."
