Neeskens: We deserved win

Johannesburg - Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens felt his men were good value for their 2-0 victory over high-flying Free State Stars at Charles Mopeli Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Surprise Moriri and Man of the Match Lebohang Mokoena were on target for Downs, who moved three points clear of nearest rivals SuperSport United and Kaizer Chiefs at the summit, with the league breaking until 15 February next year.

Neeskens felt the Brazilians were never troubled by sixth-placed Ea Lla Koto.

The coach said, “I think we controlled the game. By half-time we were 1-0 up. We had the better game and beautiful opportunities to score. We were never really in trouble. It’s a big compliment to the players. We deserved three points, we were the better side.”

The Dutchman is naturally pleased to head the standings half way through the season.

“It’s always good to be on top of the league,” he said. “The players deserve it, they have been playing very well. They can have some time off but then we start (preparing) again on 12 January from zero,” he concluded.
