Gyimah: We have a huge responsibility

Premiership

Black Leopards defender Edwin Gyimah says they have a big responsibility as defenders to help protect their leads as they did against Orlando Pirates.

After scoring two goals in the first stanza courtesy of an own goal by Innocent Maela and Roderick Kabwe, Lidoda Duvha managed to shut out Orlando Pirates at the back to clinch a 2-0 win.

"First of all thanks to an Almighty God for this day because he's the only one who knows what will happen this day, it was a great game, Pirates has quality players, they're a big team," Gyimah told SuperSport TV after receiving his Man of the Match award.

"I think it's high time we don't concede, most of our games we take the lead and let it go in the end. But this time around the boys worked hard, we worked collectively and everything went well for us.

"When you check our prevous games, we've been playing very well it's just that we lose concentration, small mistakes cost us but we're getting there. We're understanding ourselves now," he said.

"Today I'm very happy for the boys, I thank the technical team and the Chairman for this opportunity. We have to take responsibility, we have players who have something to protect, have a lead to protect, so we have a huge responsibility for this team. I make sure I work hard for this team to get out of this position."
