The Buccaneers needed a win against Chiefs to keep the Carling Black Label Cup for good having won the same trophy in the past two years
Pirates conceded late in the first half and although they created a few goalscoring opportunities throughout the game, they could not convert any of them.
“It is only fair to congratulate Chiefs on their win against us. I think we played well, but we were unlucky not to score a goal and eventually lose the game,” Lekgwathi told Goal.

Lekgwathi admits that they would have liked to win against Chiefs and keep the Black Label Cup in their trophy cabinet.
“Obviously, we would have liked to keep the trophy and make it ours, but like I said we were let down by our finishing.
“However, I think it came at the right time, so that we can know where our weakest points are before the league starts,” he said.
