Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
BOEBIE Solomons, Santos coach, reckons they are in with a very good chance of lifting the Absa Premiership title but will have to show more consistency by winning matches.
"We are getting there slowly but surely - the league is a marathon," Solomons said after his charges brought Orlando Pirates down to earth with a 1-0 win.
Former South African Under-23 striker Erwin Isaacs scored the only goal of the evening on Saturday to bring Bucs' unbeaten run to a complete stop on a pitch that was bad despite Orlando Stadium being a world-class facility.
"It is great to pick up maximum points against a top side like Pirates, especially here at Orlando Stadium, a venue that has a rich history in local soccer," Solomons said.
"We have been doing well lately, but I keep on telling my players that the most important thing is consistency, we have to keep on doing well.
"I thought we should have scored more goals, especially in the first half. It's a great evening, the most important thing is we got all the points."
Pirates coach Ruud Krol put the blame for the defeat squarely on poor coordination and failure to convert their chances.
"We did not play our best game but should have scored five or six goals. I don't think we would have scored if we played another 90 minutes," he said.
"But that is not the end of the world, we still have more games to play but it is important that we have to start converting all the opportunities created."
Pirates came close to scoring in the 32nd minute when Thembinkosi Fanteni shot straight into the hands of Santos goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng, who had a great game.
Five minute later, Phikolethu Spelman narrowly shot wide with only Pirates goalie Moeneeb Josephs to beat. Isaacs got the goal after a pass from Spelman in the 44th minute.
