Orlando Pirates coach Muhsin Ertugral praised Ghana defender Edwin Gyimah for his sterling performance in their 2-1 win over Golden Arrows in the Telkom Knockout on Sunday.

Luvuyo Memela's 74th minute goal sealed victory after Wayde Jooste cancelled out Mpho Makola's early opener.

"We were good today. Jele is tactically great at centre-back, Gyimah is an international and he is a fighter. You can't bench that," Ertugal said.

"We have great players who are strategically good, but still need to understand how to make that work better together."
