Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Kearyn Baccus hailed his team's resilience after they beat AmaZulu 2-0 in an Absa Premiership clash on Tuesday.

The Soweto giants returned to the top of the PSL standings as Leonardo Castro and Khama Billiat scored late in the game at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

Baccus received the man of the match award for his industry in the middle of park but chose to praise his teammates who bounced back from last week's loss to Polokwane City.

"I'm happy for the win and that's the most important thing at the end of the day, the boys played well and fought to the end," Buccus said on SuperSport TV.

"Credit to AmaZulu, they played well, especially in the first half, they made it very hard for us but the boys fought till the end. I'm happy with the result.

"Last week we were unlucky. I think we've played some good football in patches, we were just unlucky, we could have played two 90 minutes games, but it just couldn't happen."

Amakhosi's next game is a league fixture against Baroka FC on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 18:00.
