Lekgwathi: Bucs are gelling
Johannesburg - Orlando Pirates captain Lucky Lekgwathi was naturally delighted to
put another one over Kaizer Chiefs in the Carling Black Label Cup.
The Buccaneers won 4-3 on penalties after Oupa Manyisa, Happy
Jele, Rooi Mahamutsa and Lekgwathi scored their spot-kicks and Chiefs
goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune missed his, after a 0-0 draw.
"It's always great to win, especially twice against Chiefs in just over a week," the Bucs skipper told the Sowetan.
"The team is gelling with the old and new players adapting to the
methods of coach Julio Leal. We are in the process of wrapping up our
pre-season, there was no better way of doing that than beating Chiefs in
a new tournament.
"Our supporters are used to celebrating trophies, the status quo
will remain but we have to work hard as a it. It won't be easy because
other clubs are reinforcing.
"We are not only planning to do well on the domestic front, we
are also eyeing a second gold star by winning the African Champions
"We owe it to the fans and the chairperson, Dr Irvin Khoza."
