'Mhlongo And Mabokgwane Nearly Took Us To The NFD… Mpontshane Is Better'

Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Siyabonga Mpontshane has been a regular feature for the Buccaneers under Kjell Jonevret. The 31-year-old shot-stopper has been chosen ahead of colleagues Brighton Mhlongo and Jackson Mabokgwane, and will be hoping to maintain his spot in the starting XI when the team faces off against Bloemfontein Celtic in the Nedbank Cup on Saturday.

Many Pirates supporters have shared their support for Mpontshane, and some believe he deserves the No. 1 jersey at Mayfair.

"To be honest, the dude got a chance and he didn't disappoint." – Hloni'mayeng2

"I think he is going in the right direction, let's support him, maBhakaniya." – Mandla Bazooka

"He deserves the No. 1 jersey. Eish, Mhlongo and Mabokgwane nearly took us to the NFD." – molaobert

"This guy is very good, if you can remember him at Platinum Stars." – Ngabady

"He is by far the better goalie, the problem at Bucs is that some of the players are always favoured." – jona_1@crossbones

"That's what I have been praying for, Siyabonga deserved that chance long ago." – MK khohomela

"He is good, honestly, but I think for now the problem is his confidence. But with game time it will grow and maybe we will see the Siya we used to see at Stars." – Madrista

What are your thoughts on Mpontshane starting ahead of Mhlongo and Mabokgwane at Pirates?

Yes indeed Mpontshane is my No 1 and other keepers should at least learn a thing or two from him from Isaac.

I wish coach can also give the Nigerian goalkeeper a chance to show case his talent so we can know if we have a backup keeper because if Mphotsane get injured or suspended we should know that 6-0 is on the way in Mabokwane or Mhlongo

I hadn't seen Mabokwane in deoweto Derby n Mpontshane did get 1 bt fumbled in de pens shoot out. Mhlongo wouldn't let in all 5 penalties. In Mhlongo I still believe.

Mhlongo did nothing wrong it was the team selection that was wrong and the coaching department was below standart especially mushin,and our key players were off form they were confused by the tactics which were applied by the said useless coaches.As for Jackson was never a bucs material he needs to beg for the wayout together with Nyauza,Sikhakhane,Ndoro,Rowen and Okwouso.Bring back Chabalala n buy one strong midfielder n striker of erasmus caliber

Christiano Ronaldo is a hard working and disciplined player. Messi is a talented player. Mhlongo is rubbish, he should have worked hard when he had the chance. When I see his name in the starting lineup I know we are in trouble.

True I always maintained that he is a good keeper but at bucs like Anc favouritism operates rather than merit or form.

When Mpontshane came to Pirates he was a regular keeper,he won a trophy there and always made sure his team is in the top 8.Mhlongo was a novice who got promoted,he had to learn and adjust fast.Having Mhlongo as a regular keeper cost Pirates dearly,it was a terrible gamble.

The more the team plays better and better with the defence trying their best to shut the back door the less goals they will conceed goals so Mpontshane was selected while the team were starting to get its rythym back so dont blame Mhlongo and mabokgwane for their poor start cause the whole team's performance was poor especially our defence
