Johannesburg - Following their 4-1 win over SuperSport United on Wednesday, Orlando Pirates striker Menzi Masuku said he was delighted to have contributed in helping the Buccaneers return to winning ways.

Pirates humbled Matsatsantsa in an entertaining league encounter at Orlando Stadium thanks to Masuku’s brace together with Kermit Erasmus and Sifiso Myeni strikes. 

The 22-year-old young gun said his team-mates were relieved by their victory over United, as they had been struggling for recent wins against the current Telkom Knockout Cup holders.

“I would like to first thank the Almighty God for such a talent and a great game tonight (Wednesday),” Masuku said.

“I’m very grateful also for the supporters turn-out, it was really encouraging.

“It was always tough to play against SuperSport United because they have been beating us previously.

“But tonight we have managed to beat them with a heavy score.

“And I was lucky to be on the score-sheet twice in the match.

“The second goal I scored, I was just trying my luck from range against Ronwen Williams and it paid off.

“I’m happy we won and I’m also delighted that I had a great game.”

Victory for the Sea Robbers moved them into second spot on the log after Mamelodi Sundowns lost 1-0 to Kaizer Chiefs.

Pirates will now switch their focus to the CAF Confederations Cup second leg clash - against CF Mounana of Gabon at home on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20:15.
