Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates coach Roger de Sa said he was 'encouraged' by his side's showing against Ajax Cape Town on Tuesday, but admits they need to start taking more of their chances.

De Sa took charge of his second game since being appointed the Buccaneers' head coach, with the 47-year-old following up the win over Platinum stars a fortnight ago with a 2-0 victory over the Urban Warriors in Soweto.

The result took the Sea Robbers three points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs after five league matches, and De Sa is looking forward to getting his side's PSL title defence back on track.

"We created a lot of chances on Tuesday night, which was encouraging," he told the club's official website.

"The team played very well overall. Hopefully we can build on this performance and start converting more of the chances we create."

Meanwhile, Sifiso Myeni was full of smiles after the game as he scooped the man of the match award, with the Bucs man saying: "Tuesday's game was all about hard work. I was determined to do well having been out for so long.

"I am feeling better right now and I am looking forward to building on this performance.

"As for the award I would like to dedicate this award to my team-mates. I wouldn't have achieved it without them."
