Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo says every point is vital in the closing stages of the league following his team’s 0-0 draw with Polokwane City at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.

“We tried our best, we got the point and it will go a long way because at this stage, every point matters,” said Mhlongo after the game.

The Pirates shot-stopper was named man-of-the-match after the game and says that they knew that their tie with City will be difficult.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game. We were confident, like we are in all our games, but we weren’t arrogant about it. We need to learn from this. We spoke about the application to this game and making sure to stay focussed and level headed,” he added.

The Buccaneers have managed to collect 10 points in their last five league fixtures.
