Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs winger George Lebese has praised his team-mates after they came from behind to record a 2-1 victory over AmaZulu in a Premiership encounter on Wednesday night.

According to the football411 website, Bongani Ndulula had put AmaZulu ahead in the 22nd minute at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, reacting first to strike home a rebound after goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo had denied Goodman Dlamini.

Lebese levelled matters in the 60th minute with a left-footed volley before the 25-year-old secured all three points for the Glamour Boys in the 92nd minute when he bundled the ball home after Siphiwe Tshabalala's free-kick had hit the woodwork.

"This was a team effort. It was because of my teammates and the technical staff, this goes to them," Lebese said after the match.

"It was very difficult for us, they were strong and they got the first goal. It was difficult to come back in the game. Fortunately we got the points.

"The belief was always there after conceding. We pushed until the final minute."

The result sees Chiefs' unbeaten run in this season's league competition extended to 10 matches, and they now find themselves 11 points clear at the top of the Premiership standings.
