A much-improved, zippier playing surface was welcomed at the Newlands Stadium after a poor surface in Durban on Saturday as goals from Robbie Keane and Matthew Etherington saw us home 2-0.
"It was a far better surface for us to play on," reflected Glenn. "Newlands is a great arena for football.
"The fans are close to the pitch, it was a great atmosphere and being a night game there was a nice greasy surface, a bit of an English surface, so we felt quite at home.
"Once I saw the pitch in Durban I knew it would be difficult task for us to get a result against Pirates.
"But people in South Africa were looking for results, we're looking for a good run out. Both teams did well against us and you don't get an easy game in world football any more.
"Pre-season is always about getting through matches, trying to bed down tactical things, looking at youngsters, gelling new players.
"We've done all that because we've had a few lads injured so we've tried a few experiments and to a certain degree it's gone well.
"Results are not important but it's always nice for a manager to come through pre-season with as many clean sheets as possible and we got one against the Chiefs. It was a good performance and good win."

Glenn Hoddle said it felt a little like home from home as we toppled Kaizer Chiefs in Cape Town on Tuesday night.
