Cape Town - SuperSport United head coach Gordon Igesund has paid tribute to his side's efforts in their 2-0 win over Orlando Pirates in  Saturday's Telkom Knockout semi-final.

Goals from Lebogang Manyama and Dove Wome secured a spot in the cup final for the Matsatsantsa.

"I thought we really played well in the first half. We scored three goals, two of them were allowed and the other one was disallowed, but I know that the other one was onside," Igesund told Football411 website.

"The second half was little bit different; of course when you are losing 2-0 you have to send bodies forward and I thought we defended well.

"I would have liked to keep the ball better like we did in the first half, but credit to Pirates … I think they made a real challenge of it."

Despite this, Igesund cautioned against getting too carried away with his side's progress, asserting that there is plenty of room for improvement.

"I still think there is quite a lot of work to be done; we are not where I want us to be at the moment," he said.

"There is definitely a lot more; we keep our shape nicely and if you look at the types of players we have like Manyama, Thuso Phala, Dino Ndlovu, David Mathebula ... they are all attacking players."
