Chappies, as the player is affectionately known, saw the side chalk up a 2-0 win in the league to end a three-match winless run.

Chapman could barely conceal his delight after the match, especially as the win couldn't have come at a better time with the side heading into a key Nedbank Cup match against Orlando Pirates in their next match. 

A second half brace from Bradley Grobler saw Matsatsantsa to victory against AmaTuks, speaking after the match, he hailed the club's continuing improvement.

He said: "The win has been coming through the previous two games. In that time we've shown a steady but continuous improvement, and there are smiles on faces and belief in the camp now that we can start and put a few results together," said Chapman on the club's website.

"We've taken three valuable points now, so we just have to build on it, keep on doing the right things in the right areas, and yes, keep our feet on the ground because it's one win.

"The players who came back from injury have given us a big boost, they have a bit of presence about them too, and without singling anyone out in particular, [debutant winger] Daine Klate is a good example. He's been out for a while with injury, but now he's keen to regain his fitness and enjoy his football again. He’s definitely going to be big for us.

"I said a couple of weeks ago in relation to the likes of Kingston Nkhatha and Daine to name but two players, if we can keep everyone healthy we will do well and they’ll be an asset to us as they regain their fitness."
