The Zimbabwe international fired home the Brazilians' second after Cuthbert Malajila had opening the scoring, wrapping up a 2-0 win over Ea Lla Koto to take the Tshwane giants to second in the Premiership standings after their 13 rounds of fixtures.

And, speaking after the game, Billiat had nothing but praise for the entire Downs squad, saying: “I want to give credit to the team, we worked hard from the first minute.

“We just need to keep going each and every game and try by all means to get the results.”

“I think we deserved to win this game and I just want to give credit to the team who worked hard until the last minute.”

Billiat did, however, acknowledge that Sundowns need to be more clinical in front of goal, adding: "It's one of those things we always need to keep working on in training. When it comes to training we need to rectify our mistakes, it's not easy.

“I need to give credit to everyone, the suppliers and the guys always in the box at the right time when we need to score.

“It will come slowly and we keep on going.”
