Cape Town - Bidvest Wits goalkeeper Moeneeb Josephs was delighted with the side's 2-0 victory over Orlando Pirates and believes they were full value for their win.

The Clever Boys snapped a run of three games without a league win with the result and Josephs says they deserved it based on both recent showings and their performance during the game.

"I think we deserved this victory to be honest with you," he told KickOff.

"For the past three weeks we've been playing really good football, but we just haven't been finishing and this time we scored early. That's what we needed to lift our confidence.

"If you score first, it gives you that confidence going into halftime. It is easy to defend one goal and as for 0-0, you are walking on eggs. It is always difficult," he added.

It was a welcome respite for the club after the disappointment of getting knocked out of the Nedbank Cup earlier this month.

Wits now equal Pirates with log points but have an upper hand as they have a game in hand.
