Mamelodi Sundowns defender Motjeka Madisha is delighted the club has come through two very tough fixtures with wins but says its now time to prepare for Orlando Pirates.

The Brazilians have not been at their best in recent weeks but still managed to claim narrow 1-0 wins over Stellenbosch FC and Highlands Park in the league and Nedbank Cup respectively. The latter match even needed extra time to decide a winner.

However, despite the positive results, Madisha insists this is not a time to celebrate and their attention needs to shift to Pirates sooner rather than later.

"Both games were tough from my side, I think we did our level best, we should just focus on our next game which is Orlando Pirates. So now I just want to go home and rest," he said.

"The coach told us that we don't have to go to extra-time [but] you can't predict what's gonna happen so we just have to keep on going. So now it's time go home and rest.

"It's all about how much you want it, if you really want to succeed in life you have to put in more work, so whatever comes [your way] you have to take it. I chose to be a footballer, so I have to gel, whatever comes I must go.

"I'd like to thank the coaches and the management, the president of the team for always believing in us, for giving us the opportunity to play for Mamelodi Sundowns, so this award goes to my teammates and my coaches. I'm happy with the win."
