Clayton Daniels delighted with SuperSport United rout of Orlando Pirates

SuperSport United defender Clayton Daniels says although they’re enjoying the 6-1 humiliation they inflicted on Orlando Pirates, they should not get carried away.
Second-half goals from Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Michael Boxall (2), Thuso Phala, Bradley Grobler and Jeremy Brockie handed the Buccaneers their joint-worst ever defeat in the 80-year history of the club, matching a loss by the same margin to Mamelodi Sundowns in the BP Top 8 in 1990.
The embarrassing loss prompted Bucs coach Muhsin Ertugral to offer to resign after just nine games in charge at Mayfair.
“I think the guys should of course enjoy the moment as it was a hell of a good performance, especially in the second half,” Daniels told KickOff.com after the league tie at Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday night.
“We were clinical in the final third in difficult conditions. Credit to the lads, but tomorrow is another day and it's back to the drawing board.”
The Cape Town-born Daniels also heaped praise on his coach Stuart Baxter for their return to form, which has yielded four wins in a row and an eight-game unbeaten streak in all competitions.
“Since the coach has finalised his squad, it has taken us and him a while to get to the required level in term of tactical strategies and so on.
“But the coach reminds us that it’s important to stay humble and grateful in whatever we do. That’s why we are striving for excellence on and off the field. Our fans should know that we play for them and we always try to please them when we don the jersey of SuperSport,” Daniels concluded.
