Cape Town - Bidvest Wits forward Gabadinho Mhango thanked his team-mates after a man of the match display in the Telkom Knockout final win over Bloemfontein Celtic.

The Malawi international received the individual accolade after a tireless display in the 1-0 victory over his former side.

An impressive feat considering the skilful attacker only recently returned from his six-match suspension for spitting at AmaZulu midfielder Michael Morton earlier this season.

"First of all I want to thank God and my team-mates, I was suspended for six games and for me to come back and be Man of the Match I couldn't have done it without the help of my team-mates," he said after the game.

"As players, it's good to win trophies so maybe this cup will give us confidence (in the league).

"This will give us motivation, we will come out fighting now."

The Clever Boys are currently in 16th place in the league after 11 games but will have the chance to move out the drop zone when they face Ajax Cape Town on Wednesday evening.
