The Brazilians entered this week's Lucas Moripe Stadium
encounter on the back of four successive Premiership draws, and even went
behind against Matsatsantsa - the newly crowned Telkom Knockout champions - as
Dove Wome opened the scoring for United.
However, Khama Billiat, Themba Zwane and Teko Modise
responded for Downs to secure all three points, while SuperSport had Thuso
Phala sent off, leaving Mosimane unsurprisingly delighted.
"It's a relief, we can't hide it," said Mosimane.
"For me it's not about a relief of winning but for me
it's about the guys that have been trying and being nervous.
“So now that they broke the ice, they can come back into
their ways. I am happy we got three goals and three points and can't ask for
"It's unbelievable. Last week we played well but we
didn't win. Today we didn't play well but we won.
"I think last 15 minutes we lost tactical discipline
because they were already 10 men down and we needed goals.
"I am happy with the results, the performance. The last
15 minutes was not good but to be honest, it's good to see my team coming back
from 1-0 down and score three goals."
