 The former Jomo Cosmos players who spent the last three years on-loan at Golden Arrows came on as a second half substitute for Ayanda  Gcaba in his Soweto derby debut.
“Shitolo has been on loan. We saw how well he did last season in midfield and defence. His versatility gives us a different dimension,” said Ertugal.
The Pirates mentor also heaped praise on Edwin Gyimah for having an ability of of breaking from the back to moving forward with the ball.
