Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane took an unorthodox approach on Saturday after thanking the referee for awarding his side a penalty in the 2-0 win over Thanda Royal Zulu.

Mosimane feels Downs have been unfortunate with spot-kick decisions in the past this season, but finally saw his team awarded a penalty in their Nedbank Cup last-32 triumph over the National First Division outfit.

Teko Modise slotted home from 12 yards to add to Alje Schut's second-half opener to seal Sundowns' place in the last-16, leaving Mosimane delighted with the decision.

"We got a penalty tonight. Finally Sundowns... finally Sundowns got a penalty. It's unbelievable," Mosimane said with a hint of sarcasm in his voice.

"It's been long overdue and I got it. It's been long. I saw it against Ajax (Cape Town), I saw it against (Moroka Swallows) Swallows, I saw it against Tuks (University of Pretoria) and today I want to applaud the referee [who] was good for us."
