Billiat had a hand in both of his side’s first two goals and was rightly awarded the ‘man of the match’ accolade for his efforts on the night.

Speaking after the match, he admitted it was no walk in a park as Polokwane put up a good fight.

“It was a tough match for us against Polokwane,” said Billiat.

“Polokwane are a very good side. It was very difficult for us to keep the shape, but I give credit to the team for sticking to the plan and as a result we collected the three points which is important.”

Billiat was also involved in Edgar Manaka’s red card on the night as the Polokwane substitute produced a studs-up tackle on the Sundowns midfielder and was consequently sent for an early shower.

“Against Polokwane you always expect a physical game and they are very tough,” said Billiat regarding Manaka’s red card.

“I thank God that I have managed to still stand here.

“I give credit to the team. They pushed me and told me they needed me as much as we need each other.”

Billiat also took a moment to praise the Sundowns supporters who he feels have been cricitcal to their success this season.

“The supporters have been vital for us even when things have not been okay on our side and things are not going our way. They still come out and they always push us. It makes us feel that they deserve better and they motivate us,” concluded the attacking midfielder.
