Ofori: It's a very good result


While Eric TInkler was disappointed with Maritzburg United's display, goalkeeper Richard Ofori was overjoyed with the result against Orlando Pirates.

Ofori stood between Pirates and victory on Tuesday evening, after making a number great saves that earned his side a point at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Ofori insists the players were well aware of how Pirates were going to approach the clash following their Telkom Knockout loss to Kaizer Chiefs over the weekend.

"It's a very good result because we knew the game is gonna be tough because after losing against Chiefs I know definitely they will come, they will come hard on us, we know," Ofori told SuperSport TV.

To pick a point here I think it's a win.

"It's normal because once you're playing against Orlando Pirates here, definitely as a goalkeeper you need to stand out, that's what I did.

"So I will thank my players because they did very well, we defended the goal very well, so I'll say this [award] is for all of us."
