Pitso: You Can Get Relegated With Clean Sheets

Pitso Mosimane admitted that keeping a clean sheet is less important than making sure all three points are in the bag.

Mamelodi Sundowns secured their second away victory of the league campaign against Black Leopards, leaving the stadium with a 2-1 win and all three points in the bag, moving to third place on the log.

After going 2-0 up in the encounter, Leopards had the opportunity to come from behind, pulling a goal back, although was not enough for Luc Eymael’s side.

As quoted on Sundowns’ official website, Mosimane was relieved with grabbing all three points despite conceding on the night. Sundowns have kept just one clean sheet in the league, after six matches played.

“It’s an away win and it’s important for us to win away from home. We are behind with the games and we need to catch up with the games in hand because we always say the games in hand are not games won. Once you win them, it makes you feel better,” he said.

“It would have been nice to keep a clean sheet, but sometimes you don’t have to worry more about keeping clean sheet than winning a match. You can play a goalless draw for 30 games and then you get relegated with clean sheets. So you need to score more than the opponent, that’s how you win a match. 

“But it does not mean clean sheets are not important. They are for goal difference and goal average and all that. We had clear chances and we should have passed the ball in the net to get more. But it’s okay, when you win you won’t be too harsh,” Mosimane added.
