Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs wide man Joseph Molangoane says the club are delighted when strategies planned at training produce results in competitive action.

The Glamour Boys are on a good run of form at the moment having won three and drawn one of their last four matches. Last Saturday Molangoane was Man of the Match - his third of the season - as Chiefs defeated Polokwane City 2-1.

The player was in sparkling form in his new role as a right wing-back and created the winning goal for Dumsani Zuma to slot the winner. Speaking to the club's official website, he said, "We have targets to meet. There’s nothing much that I has changed in my approach. I have accepted a new role in the team and seizing the moment. 

"I am glad to be able to reproduce in the game what we practised during the week. It all starts at training. We plan for the game and play according to the coach’s instructions. We just love it when the plan comes together. I was in a good space. 

"I played a one-two pass with Siphelele Ntshangase and crossed to find Zuma, who scored. I am glad we won the match and remain in the hunt to win the league. I am glad to contribute to the bigger picture in the team." 

The Amakhosi  next face Baroka FC in an Absa Premiership clash at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
