Gyimah: It's Hard Work To Play For Pirates

Orlando Pirates' man-of-the-match Edwin Gyimah has admitted it's hard work to keep your place in Eric Tinkler's starting lineup.
 
 
Gyimah was in fine form on Saturday as the Buccaneers thrashed Golden Arrows 4-1 in the Absa Premiership.
 
Despite the comprehensive win, Gyimah was full of praise for the opposition, while also crediting the competition for places at the club for his performances.
 
He said, "It was an interesting game. We knew they were going to come out and work hard. They are in a bad position in the standings, which made them hungry to fight for the ball. They did very well. If they continue to perform like this, they will move away from the bottom.
 
"The coach told us to make sure to put the balls in the net, and we did that. There wasn't any pressure for us. We were one man down, but we were able to hold them. 
 
The Ghanaian, who looks to have cemented a spot in Tinkler's line-up, also spoke about the pressures of playing for the Soweto giants.
 
"It's not easy to play for Pirates. There are a lot of good guys, defenders like Rooi (Mahamutsa) and a lot of good defenders. If the coach gives you a chance you just have to prove to him you deserve it by working hard," he added.
