With the game seemingly headed for a draw at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Lebogang Manyama popped up with the winning goal in second-half stoppage time.

"No, you know first of all compliment to Golden Arrows, unbelievable defensive concept in terms of keeping us not in the most dangerous area," Middendorp told SuperSport after the match.

"We knocked, knocked and knocked until the end, we never stopped. Good it was difficult for us but I said it before last week after the Black Leopards game, we will see it more [close results] often in the end [towards the end of the season].

"Teams are working, top eight, not to relegate, come close [etc], defensive concepts coming in more and more, then you have to provide. I'm very happy for the team, for the players, that we have the three points," he continued.

When asked specifically about Arrows' approach, he added, "It's okay, I said compliment, very well structured. One aspect on our team talk the entire week, was talking about this. To be patient, sometimes take a vertical pass back, build up, if the left is closed, try to go deep on the right side. This is where we have to do better in the future, no doubt.

"Fantastic support, the noise was great scoring the goal in the last second.
