Cape Town - Orlando Pirates head coach Milutin Sredojevic has praised his players for sticking to the game plan during Tuesday's 1-0 Premiership victory over high-flying Cape Town City.

Despite the Citizens being denied what appeared to be a legitimate early goal through striker Lehlohonolo Majoro, the Sea Robbers were able to respond and won the contest through Thabo Qalinge's late second-half strike.

The result sees the Mayfair-based outfit move to the top of the standings by three points ahead of the likes of Golden Arrows, Maritzburg United and Baroka.

"First of all, I need to give credit to the players for sticking to the tactics," Sredojevic told SuperSport TV after the game.

"It has not been easy to play against very good competitive team of Cape Town City that is in the final of the MTN8, really good group of individuals coached by a great coach (Benni McCarthy).

"We have matched them for everything. One moment decided it, the moment went our side. I'm very happy for a player like Lyle Foster got more minutes.

"On the other side, I cannot put any other individual because the team worked and this batch won us the game today."
