Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala admits he was delighted to earn his side the three points against University of Pretoria following Tuesday's 1-0 victory.

The Bafana Bafana international fired home the only goal of the game with a stunning free-kick in the second half at the Tuks Stadium to leave Amakhosi 13 points clear at the top of the Premiership table with four games remaining this term.

The title is not yet wrapped up, though, with Mamelodi Sundowns holding two games in hand over Chiefs, one of which comes at home against Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday.

However, Tshabalala is hopeful his match-winner can help lead the Glamour Boys to the title this term, saying: "I am happy that I scored from a free-kick.

"I haven't scored one of those goals in a while. I am grateful that it came at the right time.

"I hope the goal will help us win the title. It was tough game, three points was at stake and even though it was a mountain to climb, we came here for three points and I am glad that my contribution gave us those three points."
