Cape Town - Luvuyo Memela has paid homage to Orlando Pirates fans for having patience with the underperforming squad this season.

Memela recently broke into the Buccaneers squad after a run of poor form forced Eric Tinkler to rotate the squad and the former Cape Town All Stars man has grabbed the opportunity with both hands - producing a man of the match performance in their 5-0 drubbing of Jomo Cosmos in their last Premiership fixture.

"I would like to thank the Orlando Pirates supporters for showing patience with us when we were not playing too well," the 28-year old told Soccer Laduma.

The former Ajax Cape Town trainee feels the support of the fans have allowed them to express themselves but admits there's a feeling within the camp that their form will get even better.

"I would like to encourage them to keep coming in numbers to support us. It means a lot to us when the supporters clap for us after a bad result.

"It pushes us to do better. There is still more for us to achieve this season."
