Second-half goals from Tashreeq Morris and Granwald Scott secured the points for the Urban Warriors, who strengthened their grip on a place in the Premiership's top eight as a result.

Paulse, 33, felt his teammates showed character to produce an improved second-half performance, after being frustrated by their opponents in the opening 45 minutes.

"It didn't go for us in the first half, I had chances, but I think as a team we are improving especially on the character side," Paulse was quoted as saying by KickOff.

“It's about absorbing pressure and when you break you must break with a plan, you can't just break.

“You know, when you're young you want to run and just keep on going but there's times you have to think about how you go forward. But at the end of the day we won so I'm happy for that."

The Urban Warriors have five games remaining in their Premiership campaign and will now cast their attentions towards Tuesday night, when they will take on Free State Stars at the Charles Mopeli Stadium.
