ZWANE ON MAART’S GOAL

“It was a special goal for us, it was Yusuf’s first [Soweto] derby and the first derby for me as a coach,” Zwane said as per KickOff.

“So to win the derby with such a special goal like this tells you about the tactical awareness of the player.

“Not many players will see that the ‘keeper is off the line.

“He took a chance and it benefitted us. We’ve got the three points and credit to him, as well as the rest of the guys. I think they all put in a good shift.”
