Mathebula: We Stopped Chiefs From Playing

In a game where the midfield battle was key, SuperSport United’s David Mathebula held his own against Kaizer Chiefs which in the end saw his team run out 2-0 winners.

Goals from Jeremy Brockie and Dove Wome gave SuperSport their second win in succession in 2015, and at the same time handed Chiefs their first defeat in the 2014/15 league campaign.

Mathebula was handed the ‘man of the match’ for his efforts in the middle of the park which saw up against some of the best in the country in the likes of Willard Katsande, George Maluleka, Mandla Masango, Siyabonga Nkosi and later substitutes Siphiwe Tshabalala and George Lebese.

Speaking after the game Mathebula admitted it was not an easy game, but they fought hard for the win and they plan on continuing their run of form.

“The game was not easy,” said Mathebula.

“It was their (Chiefs) first loss in the league.

“We did well in preparation and now we have seven points in three games (at the start of 2015) and we are happy about that, and the win tonight.

“Our strength is not to give the opponent the space to play and we did the same thing tonight.

“They (Chiefs) didn’t play their normal football, it is not like they didn’t want to, but we didn’t make it easy for them.

“We played good football tonight and I think we are going to continue to do the same thing.

“We are not in a good position (on the log), so we have to collect as many points as we can to finish in the top four.

“SuperSport is a good team, we are competitive and we want to win every game that we play.”

The win took the side from Tshwane up to fifth on the league table with 27 points from 19 games, five points adrift of fifth placed Orlando Pirates and two points ahead of sixth placed Polokwane.
