Cape Town - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane praised the professional performance from his team following the 3-0 win over Golden Arrows on Wednesday.

Goals from Hlompho Kekana, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Themba Zwane secured the points for the Brazilians at Loftus Versveld.

Mosimane was pleased that his team was slowly moving up the table after their Africa conquering exploits in the CAF Champions League.

"A very good three points with three goals. It could have been more, but we are happy. At the end we were wasteful, but the game slows and we were comfortable on the ball," he told KickOff.

With Sundowns set to compete in the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan next month, Mosimane has to manage the fitness of his players with Kennedy Mweene out injured and others in need of game-time after limited first team appearances.

"My challenge is these injuries. We lost Kennedy now and I hope it is not a big problem because we will need three goalkeepers when we go to Japan.

"But I was happy to give Leo a chance to play, Mzikayise Mashaba needs game-time. My changes are not tactical, they are to give Leo a chance to get game-time, give Mashaba game-time, give Themba Zwane a chance to play and very good, he scored.

"Take Percy, Keagan and Khama away... it's very difficult because you want to keep the same flow. The passing is there, but the energy behind it...but I'm not complaining."

The PSL announced that it had granted Sundowns permission to postpone it's fixtures during December due to The Brazilians' participation in the Club World Cup in Japan next month.
