Polokwane - Following his side’s victory over the weekend, Polokwane City coach Boebie Solomons has hailed his players for sticking to their game plan throughout the game.

City beat Mother City-based outfit, Milano United, in their PSL promotional playoff match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

'Rise and Shine' were 2-0 victors on the day thanks to strikes from Sphesihle Nzimande and substitute Thabo Rakhale.

"We carried out our game plan very well," said Solomons after the match.

"We were not under pressure at all.

"Milano gave us a good fight."

The former Bloemfontein Celtic assistant coach then revealed that his main objective was to run at their opposition’s left back, Taariq Fielies, as he was limping due to an injury from the start of the game.

Solomons utilised his speedy winger, Rakhale, as a secret weapon to expose the tall left-back when he came on as a substitute.

"We started using our other right winger in the first half.

"We told him to run at Taariq Fielies.

"When Thabo (Rakhale) came on, the tall defender was already tired.

"Our goals came from his side.

"It now comes down to the wire but we have a superior goal difference," he added.

City now occupy the driving seat with one foot at the top flight football door heading into their last game against Black Leopards at the Giyani Stadium on Sunday.

A draw will be enough for Polokwane City to reclaim their PSL status, with Leopards set to first travel down to the Cape to face the wounded United on Wednesday at Athlone Stadium.
