Matsatsantsa Masterclass! How SuperSport Eclipsed Pirates

SuperSport United managed a third successive win in the Absa Premiership following their victory over title chasers Orlando Pirates, and coach Kaitano Tembo argued it was probably their best performance of the campaign so far.

“I think it is the first time in maybe 16 matches that we have won three games on the trot. We haven’t done that in a while, we have missed some consistency,” the Matsatsantsa coach told the media. 

“We dominated, especially in the first half. We created better chances, especially on the transition. We put pressure on them and their goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands really kept them in the game with some great saves – one on the line and another at (the) near post from Siyabonga Nhlapho.”

Clayton Daniels scored the winner in the second half in a replica of the header that Sandilands had saved earlier in the game.

“We were still good in the second half, getting into good areas. I think overall we played effective football. And above all, the work ethic from the guys was very good – that was one thing we took from the game. That is our identity, that is who we are as SuperSport. I am pleased that we are getting that back,” added Tembo.
