The Buccaneers had a tough opening first stanza before Thembinkosi Lorch broke the deadlock in stoppage time, while Justin Shonga scored a brace late in the game to sink the Guinean Champions.

Pirates now sit top of Group B ahead of the next encounter against Esperance next month.

“I’d like to express condolences to all South Africans upon losing Philemon “Chippa” Masinga. We want to dedicate this win to him,” the Serb told SuperSport TV.

“It is the third consecutive time that Horoya [is playing against a South African side], they have drawn two times [but] today we beat them.

“It was not an easy match as the results are showing. It was a tough match. Exactly the way we have planned, we have passed.

“The first goal [came] the same way they conceded in the last two matches. Between the central defender and left full-back, [Thembinkosi] Lorch got the ball and scored the goal.

“Later on we were thinking we were lacking with two central midfielders and we put in ‘Figo’ [Linda Mntambo] inside. With his first touch he gave a killer pass [to Justin Shonga] for the second goal.
