The Belgian mentor watched Ea Lla Koto go two goals down in the first half, but they managed to claw their way back into the game and registered a memorable 3-2 win.

Speaking after the match, Saintfiet was pleased with his side's fighting spirit, saying: "We did the same against SuperSport United a few weeks ago (after being 2-0 down at half-time).

"I think in the first half we were not that bad. We had more opportunities in the first half, but our finishing was not so good.

"(In the) second half, I was quite angry and made changes. I demanded the same performance as we (produced) against SuperSport, and the boys did it quite well. I'm happy with the performance," he added.

The win takes the Qwa-Qwa outfit up to sixth place in the standings, with 10 points from seven matches.

Stars’ next PSL fixture is against Orlando Pirates on Saturday, October 18.
