Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns attacking midfielder Teko Modise admits they expected a tough game against Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday, but knew they would run out winners in the end.

Soccer-Laduma reports, an Elias Pelembe goal handed the Brazilians all three points in their Absa Premiership match at the Free State stadium.

Modise was awarded the ‘man of the match’ accolade for his role in midfield and feels his side should have scored more goals besides from the one they found because of a defensive error by Celtic.

“We knew coming here it was going to be a difficult game,” said Modise.

“We knew Celtic’s strong point was their counter-attacks.

“We created numerous chances, especially in the first half, but we couldn’t convert.

“Fortunately enough they made a mistake and we punished them.”

Modise added that the advice of the technical team is what saw them through the match against the Phuna Sele, and which will see them continue to improve.

“It was frustrating at times, but the coach told us to be patient and we have the experience to know that if we kept on playing it would open up, and fortunately enough we got an opportunity and we scored,” added Modise

“We started very badly, we just hope from here on we are going to continue improving our game.”
