Cape Town - Bloemfontein Celtic coach Clinton Larsen was delighted to see his side stick to the "game plan" after hammering Mamelodi Sundowns 5-0 on Wednesday evening.
Phunya Sele Sele proved ruthless at the Lucas Moripe Stadium as a brace from Frank Mhango followed by goals from Lerato Lamola, Thapelo Morena and Musa Nyatama secured three priceless points.
And, speaking after the win, which left Siwelele three points clear in fifth, a clearly delighted Larsen said: "I thought the players carried the game-plan very well.
"We were disciplined in how we defended. We were patient, we didn't push up high. We wanted to push [Alje] Schut and Rama [Mphahlele] close to the half-way line and utilise the space at the back.
"We also wanted to play with two strikers to exploit the spaces behind [Mzikayise] Mashaba and [Siyanda] Zwane who like to go forward."
Larsen was, however, more interested in his side's defensive display, adding: "The goals don't excite me but what does is the structure and defensive play of the team.
"I thought we were brilliant in defence. We limited a talented team to possibly no goal-scoring chances.
"I thought the midfield worked their socks off to protect the back four and the keeper.
"We always knew that we would get them on a break. It was just a matter that whether we will be clinical or not. I thought we were more clinical on the break and that's why we scored the goals."
