Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns are flying high after a week that provided coach Pitso Mosimane with the best possible Christmas present. 

On Wednesday night Mosimane saw his side lift the Telkom Knockout trophy after stunning Kaizer Chiefs 3-1 in Durban, and just four days later Sundowns moved to the top of the PSL log with a 2-0 win at home to Orlando Pirates. 

That's two Soweto giants knocked over in a week ... and those two victories came either side of a team party. 

"I was worried about the team in the beginning, especially with the weather because it was hot and we came from a game against Kaizer Chiefs and the travelling from Durban," Mosimane told

"The boys wanted to party on Wednesday and we had to let them go. Sometimes you need to find a balance, they have achieved. They have done well,you need to reward them and we had to let them go and have a party."

And with no fixtures remaining in 2015, that party looks set to continue a while longer if you are a Sundowns fan.
