Cape Town - SuperSport United left-back Aubrey Modiba believes Matsatsantsa deserve more credit for what they've achieved in the CAF Confederation Cup.

United are unbeaten at the top of Group D after a win and two draws from their opening three games of the competition, including a 2-2 draw with defending champions TP Mazembe.

Modiba, who scored against Mazembe on Sunday, wants his team to receive more recognition for what they've been able to do on the continent thus far.

"As a team I think we did well. We showed fighting spirit and we got a point away from home, against a top team like Mazembe," said Modiba, according to SowetanLIVE website.

"It showed that we worked for each other. We would have liked to win, but a draw is still a good result for us. We need to stop conceding and I believe we can go far in this competition."

He added: "We should show that it's not only about Pirates and Sundowns, but SuperSport as well. We want to go as far as possible."
