DURBAN — Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was full of praise for Orlando Pirates after his Red Devils defeated second-string Bucs 1-0 in their second Vodacom Challenge match played at King’s Park Stadium here on Tuesday night.

Said Ferguson: “What I saw today of Pirates showed me they have improved a lot since we played them in the same event two years ago … Our keeper, Ben Foster, was forced to make two really good saves in the second half. We were a little lucky not to have conceded a goal.”
