Cape Town - Cape Town City captain Robyn Johannes says that keeping Mamelodi Sundowns' midfield supply line under wraps was key to their victory on Tuesday night.
A solitary goal from Nana Akosah-Bempah on 26th minute was enough to hand the Citizens victory in Pretoria - along with some outstanding defence from the Cape side to keep the ever-probing Sundowns at bay.
Johannes, who led the way with a Man of the Match performance in defence, revealed his side's approach after the match.
"They are the best team in the country, but we had a game plan and we stuck to it perfectly," he said.
"We knew if we stopped (Hlompho) Kekana and (Tiyani) Mabunda from playing then half of the job is done.
"Credit to the boys. Fantastic effort! You have to be on your toes for 90 minutes."
Johannes continued: "Sundowns' midfield in unbelievable with (Themba) Zwane, Kekana, Mabunda and Oupa (Manyisa).
"They shift the team from side to side but so do we. We stuck to our plan, we were patient enough and like I said, credit to the boys. Amazing three points.
"We did a double over Sundowns last season. Great three points here tonight," he added.
