Cape Town - Mpumalanga Black Aces goalkeeper Shu-Aib Walters feels the side can be pleased to have taken a point off Orlando Pirates following Friday's stalemate in Soweto.
A stunning solo effort from Mpho Makola put a dominant Buccaneers side in front after 21 minutes at the Orlando Stadium this weekend, only for Collins Mbesuma's striker before half-time to eventually ensure a share of the spoils.
The result maintained AmaZayoni's unbeaten start to the new season and left them just one point off the pace at the top, and Walters says they can feel pleased about their performance against the PSL giants.
"We knew it was going to be a tough game, we knew they were going to come at us , we knew that they needed the points and we know Pirates are a good team," said the keeper.
"Makola had a great chance in the first (half) and it was a good goal; I was a bit blinded at that one. The second half, I tried to keep the team in the game.
"We created enough chances ourselves, one or two smaller chances to win the game and I'm just thankful that I could contribute to the success of the team."
