Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs midfielder George Maluleka expressed his delight following their emphatic 3-1 triumph over Free State Stars on Tuesday.
The Amakhosi kept their impressive form afloat when they humbled Ea Lla Koto in an Absa Premiership encounter played at FNB Stadium.
Simphiwe Tshabalala, Bernard Parker and Willard Katsande were on target for the Phefeni Glamour Boys while Stars grabbed a consolation courtesy of Rooi Mahamutsa.
The Thembisa born attacker believes that the Soweto giants could have wrapped up the match before the interval.
"We fought very hard together to win the game," insisted Maluleka.
"We could have killed the game in the first half with two goals because we had plenty of chances but we failed to bury.
"Second-half they came at us strongly and we were sitting at the back. But as the game went on we scored a third goal.
"We won the game and we're happy with the three points."
With the Amakhosi recording their third consecutive league victory, the 28-year-old player has insisted that things are finally coming together for Steve Komphela's troops.
"Yes we are coming good as a team now," Maluleka said.
"Our aim was to win the game and picked up where we left-off last year.
"So from here we can only go forward."
A win moved Chiefs to a third spot on the log while Stars remains rooted in the relegation zone, occupying the 14th place.
Chiefs will face Maritzburg United away from home in their next league installment on Saturday while Stars take on SuperSport United at home next week Wednesday.
Kick off is at 20:15.
