Johannesburg - Following their 3-3 stalemate with Platinum Stars on Wednesday, Orlando Pirates defender Ntsikelelo Nyauza said his team-mates were delighted with a point considering their opponents’ attacking style of play on the night.

The Buccaneers shared the spoils with Dikwena in a six goal thriller at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday.

Mpho Makola, Issa Sarr and Oupa Manyisa were on target for the Happy People while Mogakolodi Ngele’s hat-trick was sufficient to earn the North West Tycoons a point.

Despite a draw at home, Nyauza believes Pirates did well collectively and they will be aiming to make amends in their next game.

“It wasn’t an easy game for us we had to fight harder to get a point,” said Nyauza.

“We played collectively as a team especially in the second half, I think we did well.

“A point was good for us in the end considering how Platinum Stars were playing.

“But we still have a lot of work to do going forward.

“And now we just have to go back to the drawing board again and focus on our next game.”

Pirates will face Bidvest Wits in their next Absa Premiership clash at the Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday.
