Cape Town - Jomo Cosmos coach Jomo Sono reveals that they knew what to do against Kaizer Chiefs as they secure a 1-0 victory over the Sowetan giants.

Cosmos kept the Chiefs attack at bay with their ultra-defensive approach and snatched a late winner.

The result sees Cosmos bounce back from a 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Orlando Pirates at the weekend, while Chiefs have now lost three consecutive Absa Premiership games.

“It was difficult, coming back from 5-0 [against Orlando Pirates] to take three points from here,” he said as quoted by KickOff.

“The coffin has not yet been lowered so they must take away their tombstones, that’s all I can say. Well done to the boys.

“They worked hard. They played according to instructions, they played according to the system. Even when Chiefs were attacking us, we 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 we planned.

“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.”
