their tombstones, that’s all I can say. Well done to the boys.

were not in a rush.
“We defended well, we knew what to do because we studied
Kaizer Chiefs properly against other teams so we knew what to do.
“It was a very difficult game and they are a very good team,
make no mistake, it's just that they are not converting goals and that's what
“If we could keep them first half without them getting a
goal, we knew that those fans will start attacking them, and it’s difficult to
play when your fans are attacking you.”
