Vincent Pule praised his Orlando Pirates team-mates' strength of character after beating Maritzburg United 2-0 in the DStv Premiership on Sunday.

Pule was the man of the hour for the Buccaneers at Orlando Stadium as he scored twice in the second half to help the hosts to a win and fourth position on the table.

Despite his heroics, Pule was full of praise for the rest of the team, calling them a "bunch of winners" after getting past United.

"When you're sitting there on the bench, you have to focus on the game and look at the spaces. Tactically it was a very difficult game; they were very good in the first half," Pule told the club's media channel.

"But we have a bunch of winners, and we had to come back. We showed character and scored two goals and won the game.

"At home, we are unbeaten for a long time; I think we are very confident when we're playing here at Orlando.

"We knew it was going to be a difficult game; they were pushing us all over, but we have a good group of guys, and we have character, so we won the game."
