Kaizer Chiefs striker Bernard Parker was pleased with how they played against their Soweto rivals Orlando Pirates on Saturday.
The forward's solitary goal helped Chiefs defend the Carling Black Label Champion Cup at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
“It was a boost for us on the field and I’m happy that we came out with a win,” Parker told SuperSport TV.
“With my frontline, we created a lot of chances, we tried to break quick and we did.
Amakhosi will be hoping to win one or two major trophies during the upcoming 2017/18 campaign.
"But as we got into the final third we can be a little bit more ruthless, just 10 percent more and we would come out with a lot of goals," he added.
“But other than that, it’s a learning curve for us, we are looking good and looking solid. This year we want to achieve our goals.”
Chiefs have now won the pre-season tournament title three times, while Pirates have win lifted it four times.
