Orlando Pirates forward Thembinkosi Lorch has urged his side to continue their current momentum as they prepare to face Royal AM in their next DStv Premiership encounter on Friday evening.
Lorch starred in a massive 4-1 victory for the Buccaneers over Maritzburg United at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday evening.
The 28-year-old, who got his name on the scoresheet, also managed to set up all three goals for Kwame Peprah, Deon Hotto and Kabelo Dlamini as they walked away with all three points.
Lorch was delighted with his and the team’s performance, but has already turned his focus to their next league match against a tough Royal AM side in Chatsworth.
“First of all I’d like to thank the man above for the talent he gave me and I promise I will honour it,” Lorch told SuperSport TV post-match.
“It wasn’t an easy game and you can see the body is tired from the [Caf Confederation Cup] final.
“But the most important thing is that we won the game, we created a lot of chances and we converted them.
“We need push, there’s nothing much that we can do, we need to push and get maximum points, which we got today, so the focus is on the next game to KZN, it’s going to be a tough game, so we need to prepare ourselves.
“I knew it was going to come and the coaches told me I must keep on dodging because their defence is slow, I knew I was going to get it.”
