Midfielder Mpho Makola insisted helping the team collect three points tonight was more important than his brace in Pirates’ emphatic 4-1 win over Chippa United .
Makola came off the bench to net two superb goals to hand the Mighty Buccaneers their first win of the new league campaign.
Speaking after the game Makola said: “ we achieved our main objective which was to collect our first win of the season. Following our defeat to SuperSport (United) it was important that we bounce back immediately.
“I am pleased with my performance tonight, but the most important thing is how we played as a team. At the end of the day its about what we achieve as a unit that counts.
“Hopefully we can carry this goal scoring form into our crucial match against Leopards over the weekend,” he concluded.
The Buccaneers are set to be pushed to the limit when they play host to AC Leopards in their CAF Confederations Cup on Saturday. Leopards come into this encounter knowing that nothing less than a victory will be enough while Eric Tinkler and his men will secure a semifinal berth if they win or draw on Saturday.
