Pitso hails Sundowns' form

Johannesburg - Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his side are reaching the heights that he is looking for as he reflected on a run of three successive wins.

“Give me a chance to let me put it together, let me dot the ‘i’s’ and cross the ‘t’s’. The flow is ok, we have the quality, the players are there. When we press hard and regain the ball as well as we’ve done recently then we look very good,” he said.

According to the supersport.com website, Sundowns have moved to within six points of Premier Soccer League leaders Kaizer Chiefs, drastically cutting into their previous runaway lead. Sundowns still also have a game in hand, although Chiefs play tonight again.

“We are getting there slowly. We’ve been playing proper football, good football. Playing football with proper angles and passing the ball well,” said Mosimane after successive wins over Lamontville Golden Arrows, Orlando Pirates (both away) and Ajax Cape Town, a 3-2 victory at Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria on Saturday night.

“We dominate, we are getting the game to where I believe it should and the way I think football should be played. I’m looking for patient build-ups, football that is easy on the eye, I need to see where we are going … I don’t like players to just kick the ball forward, we must build it (the attacks) up, draw out our opponent and then go a them quicker,” he said.

“I’m happy with the way we are doing that, we are achieving our objectives. Our last game saw us score three goals and take three points. What more do you want?”
