Maritzburg United head coach Fadlu Davids was pleased with his side's performance against Orlando Pirates.
The Team of Choice suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Soweto giants on Saturday evening.
Despite the defeat, Davids was full of praise for his charges and the way performed at Orlando Stadium.
“Today my boys passed the test. I’m extremely proud of them to come here at Orlando and completely dominate in the first 30 minutes and then concede a set-piece both against the run of play but unbelievable performance,” Davids told SuperSport TV.
“They went upwards and backwards, Pirates had a five-man defence line, another defender, another defender, it’s absolutely amazing what they have achieved here tonight in terms of performance, in terms of attitude. These players have to be proud.
“I don’t take this result. I’ll go the change room and tell them absolutely fantastic performance. It’s about the process. We are on the right track, they will get better next season, they will gain more experience. If you can come here at Orlando Stadium and do what we did tonight it’s unbelievable I’m so proud of them.”
