Cape Town - Reyaad Pieterse says he has a healthy working relationship with Ronwen Williams, but admits it's not easy to have two top keepers fighting for one position at SuperSport United.

Pieterse played most of the games in the first half of the season, while Williams was out with a long-term injury, but the latter has since reclaimed his place in the starting line-up.

Pieterse joined Matsatsantsa in 2016 after a three-year stint with Kaizer Chiefs, where he was seen more as an understudy to Itumeleng Khune.

Despite the competition to be in the team week in and week out, he says Williams and himself and keep each other on the toes in the battle to be the club's first choice in goal.

"Yeah, it has been very good. We've been pushing each other, but as you know results have not been coming our way and the focus is on helping the team," Pieterse told Vodacom Soccer.

"But of course it's not easy when you have two goalkeepers fighting for the same jersey. But at the end of the day we support each other and encourage each other through the good and bad times, you know."
