Qalinge was named among the substitutes when the team-sheets were released, however he was included in the line-up when Mpho Makola pulled out for falling ill.
Qalinge went onto claim the Man of the Match as the Buccaneers drew 0-0 with Maritzburg United at the Harry Gwala Stadium.
"I had to switch on from the onset regardless of whether I was playing or not. I had to be ready. It wasn't a problem because already I had already switched on," Qalinge told SuperSport after the game.
Qalinge also commented on Pirates' unbeaten start to the Absa Premiership season.
"It is a good start, we're looking to get maximum points in every game we play. We're looking to collect as many points as possible. We must keep grinding and take one game at a time," he added.
