Ndengane picked up the Man of the Match award as the Buccaneers manage to defeat Golden Arrows 1-0 on Saturday.

The former Celtic defender has been a regular starter since joining the club, and he revealed that he has settled in well.

“Ever since I came here I felt at home because for me to come early, I had to learn a lot of things, how the team plays and for the time [it took] to come here it was not difficult because I’ve learned a lot of things," Ndengane told SuperSport after the game.
 
“It’s going to be another tough game, I know how they play and even the team [Celtic] know how I play, so we gonna go there and see how it goes,” he said.
 
On the win over Arrows, the Pirates defender feel his knowledge of Steve Komphela helped in the encounter.
 
“It wasn’t easy, we came here knowing that Golden Arrows is a well coached team by coach Steve Komphela, I know him very well,” Ndengane told SuperSport TV.
 
“We were expecting a tough game, so we had to grind the results. After scoring, we had to be smart and not add numbers [upfront] so we are not caught in transition. We had to manage that."
