Myeni, Ndoro revel in Bucs victory

Orlando Pirates

MATCH REPORT: Pirates win it again!

Myeni scored a peach of a free-kick over the wall and in to give Pirates the lead before Reneilwe Letsholonyane equalised, while Ndoro netted the winning spot-kick in the shootout to hand Bucs a 4-3 win.

“It was good, it was a pretty good game, eventually today I played well and scored my first goal in the Derby and with a free-kick. It’s the first time I scored with a free-kick,” Myeni said.

New Bucs signing Ndoro, meanwhile, got his first taste of the Soweto Derby and revealed his pride at featuring in the prestigious fixture.

“It was a good feeling since yesterday in camp. I wanted to play this game. Always watching this game on TV [in the past], I said one day I will play in this and today, thank God, I’m part of the Derby,” he said.

The Zimbabwean striker was also delighted to score the winning penalty in off the post, past a flat-footed Reyaad Pieterse in the Chiefs goal.

“It’s a good feeling. I’m happy for the team and I wish to continue doing that. It boosts me and I want to continue scoring for the club and win cups this season,” he said.

Ndoro also stated his intention to win the final place in coach Eric Tinkler’s CAF Confederation Cup squad, and his chances have improved after Thamsanqa Gabuza picked up a hamstring injury.

“Guys are training, different training, and those who are playing in the cup are getting only light training so us who are not playing and not involved must push harder and try to match them,” he added.
