Namibian goal-machine Peter Shalulile was at it again for the South African champions, this time scoring from the penalty spot in the first half after his injury-time heroics against Chippa last time out. Shalulile now has six top-flight strikes this season and already holds a commanding lead in the race for the top scorer award.

“Firstly compliments to both teams I think they gave it a very good go, compliment to our players because they dug deep and gave a lot of effort and a lot of commitment,” Mokwena told SuperSport after the match.

“We want to be a very difficult team to play against and the harder it is the better for us.”

When asked if the players are starting to trust themsleves more following a stuttering start to the campaign, Mokwena said, “Well, I don’t know where the doubt comes from, I hear a lot of people are doubting this team, I don’t know where the doubt comes from to be honest.

“We trust them and they know that, they trust themselves and we know that and this is the same team that has only lost, how many games is it now, six games in the last two years, so I don’t know where the doubt comes from, we keep going.”
