Neeskens: Win most important

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens was delighted that his side finally came away with three points after they claimed a 2-1 win away to Black Leopards on Wednesday.

It was far from simple for the Brazilians who had to endure a tough second-half but saw out the win to move back to the top of the league table on goal difference.

"It's very important that you win the three points. I said also to the boys, in all the games that we have played, a lot of draws we had, it was not because we didn't create," said Neeskens.

"I said one day it's going to work again and we are going to score again - and I think we started very well on the game. We dominated the game.

"I think the only team that was trying to play for 90 minutes was us. We deserved to win.

"We will try to recover from this game and hopefully have a result on Saturday (in the Nedbank Cup)."
