It's Moloi's time to shine

"We could have had a better outcome today but Chippa were well prepared," said Mosimane after the match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane was full of praise for Chippa United after the teams' goalless Absa Premiership draw at the weekend.

"We could have had a better outcome today but Chippa were well prepared," said Mosimane after the match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday.

"We had a game last week Tuesday and some of the guys didn't have the legs to carry out a good performance in this match - hence us having had to replace Khama Billiat in the second half.

"We brought on three attackers because we really wanted a win but Chippa had locked all avenues. Chippa fought a good fight, they held their ground."

"I think coach Teboho Moloi is doing a good job and this is his time to shine."

Mosimane said his team were starting to feel the pressure of having to push for the number one spot on the log.

Moloi says his team will be looking to carry out the good rhythm when they host Kaizer Chiefs on December 12.

"This was a great spectacle to watch," Moloi said.

"I am happy that my boys could match the level of skill Sundowns has. If this is the way we are going to perform . teams will come here and go home with nothing."

The Chilli Boyshave two more home games before the Christmas break and Moloi is targeting the top three spot.

"Targets are merely there to set goals for ourselves but if we do not achieve those targets we end up the team under pressure, which is something we do not want to do," said Moloi.
