It was a happy night for Pitso Mosimane after his team earned the full three points with a goal from Gaston Sirino.

Their won has put them on equal tables with Kaizer Chiefs at the top of the Absa Premiership.

Their match against Kaizer Chiefs was the very first time (since Mosimane took charge at Sundowns) they deployed a more defensive gameplay during the second half where they had to “pack the bus.”

It was a tough game,” said Mosimane in a post match media conference.

A game that needed Champions League experience. We had the first half. We had chances to better the score line.”

I will give Chiefs the second half, they did not allow us to get out of our blocks. We were under pressure in the second half and had to respond accordingly to the questions posed by Chiefs,” he added.

Mosimane was delighted with how his team played creatively to score the winning goal.

The big players are starting to come up and believing it. We need them, players like Themba and Sirino. I’m glad they’ve come up at the right time.”
