sheet on Sunday afternoon in Bucs’ victory MTN8 over Bidvest Wits.
Here: Drought in front of goal
The Orlando Pirates first choice goalkeeper has so far
conceded five goals in the new campaign but is determined to better his
performances between the sticks in the next matches.
“It was okay to keep a clean sheet against Wits,” he told
Orlando Pirates website.
“It gives goalkeepers confidence but it is not something
that we keepers have control over.”
“If the defence loses a bit of focus, it becomes difficult
for goalkeepers to do well. Strikers are artists, they are very clever - they
know where to put the ball beyond keepers’ reach.
“There are places in the goals that keepers find very
difficult to go to, but I am determined to improve my game and keep more clean
“We went to Wits to win the match and we won. Personally I
didn’t want to concede and I didn’t concede - so, it was a very good day in the
office for all of us,” explained Meyiwa.
The Buccaneers will shift their focus to the ABSA
Premiership when they welcome AmaZulu to the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday,
August 20 with the kick-off set for 19:30.
