Cape Town - Having scored the winning goal in Saturday's 2-1 Soweto derby triumph over Kaizer Chiefs, midfielder Vincent Pule heaped praise on Orlando Pirates team-mate Augustine
Mulenga, who teed him up.
Pirates' second goal was the result of an impressive team
effort, with Justin Shonga playing a clever ball through to Mulenga, who slid
it across Itumeleng Khune, leaving Pule with the goal at his mercy.
The former Wits winger made no mistake, netting in
the 32nd minute, just three minutes after Innocent Maela had equalised
following Khama Billiat's opener.
"It was a special moment to score a derby goal. I will
definitely remember this one for a very long time," Pule was quoted as
saying by Pirates' official website.
"We have all grown up watching this game and it has
always been a dream to play in it, so having that chance and also scoring and
winning the game made it a great weekend for me.
"Shonga's inside pass to Mulenga was very good, and in
that position we all know how dangerous Mulenga can be. He's such a clever
player. When Khune came out and Mulenga picked the pass, I was in the right
place at the right time for the finish. It was a nice finish to a great build
Mulenga scooped the man-of-the-match award, but Pule
continues to earn plaudits across the country, having won Pirates' Player of
the Month and Goal of the Month awards for September.
