Takesure Chinyama scored four times after Sifiso Myeni had opened
the scoring in the 25th minute, leaving Pirates with a healthy lead
going into the second leg tie on the Comoros Islands on March 2.
"I would like to congratulate the guys for a job well done," Lekgwathi told the club's official website.
"We came into this match not knowing what to expect but what I am
particularly pleased with, is the way we conducted ourselves throughout

"Once we were 2-0 up, instead of putting our foot off the pedal,

The veteran defender added: "We go into the second leg with a
nice five-goal cushion but having said that, the job is not yet done. We
will go to Comoros with the same mentality to win... we cannot afford
