Polokwane - Following his side midweek victory over Black Leopards, Polokwane City coach Boebie Solomons has hailed his defenders for keeping Lidoda duvha at bay when the two Limpopo-based teams met in the PSL promotion play-offs.'Rise and Shine' walked away 1-0 victors at the old Peter Mokaba stadium in Polokwane on Wednesday night thanks to Vukile Mngqibisa's first half header. Despite Leopards coach, Kostadin Papic, slamming City players for 'parking the bus', Solomons praised his defence for their bravery."We defended very well but still missed few goal scoring opportunities," said Solomons."And that made them come at us strongly."The only mistake we did was that, we were too deep and that is risky in football."I can park five buses if I have to, as long as I keep my PSL status."Or even ten buses, that’s not an issue, as long as I secure our PSL status."The former Santos coach also hinted that his charges never underestimated Leopards from the start. He added that the team did well, considering the fact that most key players were unavailable for that encounter because of suspensions and injuries. "That was an important game for us, Leopards are a good team.""They have good players that play good football."It was going to be risky to underestimate them."But we were very wounded."Six of our players were injured and others suspended."We had half of our team in the starting line-up but am glad we sticked to our game plan." City now tops the playoff standings with four points after two games. Their next game will be at home against Milano United, who are yet to record a victory after their two game. The two teams shared the spoils in a goalless match in Cape Town last week. Solomons believes his side needs to record a second consecutive win to be on a driving seat."We really need to win against Milano."We have to win and put our foot on the PSL door.Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00.
