Neeskens chuffed with win
Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Johan Neeskens was naturally pleased with his team's 1-0 defeat of Bloemfontein Celtic in the Premiership on Sunday.
According to soccerladuma website
, the Brazilians claimed only their second league win of the season courtesy of Man of the Match Richard Henyekane's 36th minute goal at Free State Stadium.
The clubs will meet again in the Telkom Knockout final next Saturday at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
"It was a good result against a team known for their strength at home, and the players gave their best," said Neeskens, whose unit climbed a point above AmaZulu at the foot of the table with the triumph.
"I always said things will improve. It was a difficult game, we created some opportunities and scored a good goal. I think we deserved to win," concluded the under-fire Dutchman.
The defeat leaves Phunya Sele Sele eighth in the standings on 16 points - six more than Downs and 11 behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs after 12 rounds of fixtures.
