With the Soweto giants trailing 2-0 with 20 minutes left in the second half, goals from Willard Katsande, Anthony Akumu and Samir Nurkovic secured a 3-2 at Loftus Versfeld.

"We weren't a very happy team at half-time. Credit to Polokwane City. They caught us sleeping three or four times," Middendorp told SuperSport TV.

"The changes helped us in the second half with the bringing in of experienced players like Katsande, Rama, Bernard Parker. In the second half, we had a calmness, coolness, we built up in a totally different way.

"Being 2-0 down and scoring three goals in eight minutes shows the ambition, shows the character that each player had.

"It was not good in the second half. There was no pressure on the ball. The long balls were coming over our defensive line and we didn't react.

"We were much better in the second half. We were ambitious, focused, committed. We wanted to win this game and we have done it.

After Mamelodi Sundowns' were held by Highlands Park, Chiefs moved six points clear but Middendorp is only focused on his side's results,

"I'm not concerned with other sides' results, who wins, who loses. I can only focus on Kaizer Chiefs, to work with the team, to prepare the team.

"History is past. Yesterday is past. The current moment is a gift. It's fantastic. The future we all know is a secret. Nobody knows. We want to win this championship, we said it in August last year and we are working hard for it as we have seen today."
