Cape Town - Wayne Sandilands was full of praise for everyone
at Orlando Pirates after he received the man of the match award following their 1-0 win over Black Leopards.
The goalkeeper pulled off numerous impressive saves at
Thohoyandou Stadium on Sunday to help the Buccaneers clinch a narrow win,
thanks to an own goal from Thabiso Mokoena in stoppage time.
The victory moved Pirates back up to second position on the
Absa Premiership standings, where they trail Kaizer Chiefs by six points after
securing a sixth consecutive league win.
"I don't know where to begin, it's just amazing what
this team is doing, it's just amazing to be a part of this team. I mean it's
not just me to deserve this [award], it's the whole team," Sandilands told
"The effort from the top to the bottom, the coaches,
the players, everybody. Orlando Pirates, this is the place to be, we just got
to continue, remain humble. We know that this is such a hard place to come.
"Like I said, it's just amazing what's happening in the
team right now, we can come here and get the three points.
"Credit should go to our goalkeeper coach, we push each
other in training like I said, it's a team effort. I'm just grateful for the
three points today, hopefully, we can continue to push on. Very grateful (for
the clean sheet)."
