Muhsin Ertugral has selection headache in goal with Felipe Ovono, Jackson Mabokgwane, Brighton Mhlongo and Siyabonga Mpontshane

Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral says he has a welcome selection headache in goal.

Ertugral handed a start to Felipe Ovono in Bucs' 3-1 win over Golden Arrows in their first league game of the season last night.

The Equatorial Guinea international recently returned to favour at Mayfair after being transfer-listed in July. However, Ovono will be disappointed that an error of his led to Arrows' goal in Soweto.

Ovono was picked ahead of new signing Jackson Mabokgwane, who was on the bench at Orlando Stadium.

Ertugral also has Brighton Mhlongo - who was Eric Tinkler's first-choice at Bucs last season - and Siyabonga Mpontshane at his disposal.

"Nothing is wrong with Brighton. He is a great keeper. We have great keepers at this club and it will make for great competition," Ertugral said.

"It gives me a headache because I have to pick from four. But it's refreshing because I can sit back knowing the quality in the four."
