Mosimane: It Has Been Tough

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane admits it has been a tough six days for his team.
The Brazilians extended their lead at the top of the Absa Premiership to four points after defeating Baroka 2-1 on Sunday afternoon.
That added to victories over Chippa United and Cape Town City in their last two outings, and Mosimane admits it has been a grueling period to come through.
“We didn’t start well, you know with the heavy legs. The third game in six days, but we don’t worry about that, in time the body will adjust,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
“But it has been tough.
“Vila (Sibusiso Vilakazi) didn’t have the biggest game, but he was an important player for us. You can see his experience on the ball when Percy (Tau) scored after he created the goal.
“He (Vilakazi) gets there, he doesn’t panic. Normally they shoot or blast the ball, so he is getting the shot.
“They (Baroka) were a better team in the first half, but we are more experienced.
“The players know we play football at Chloorkop. There is no other place that you should be unless you don’t respect the image that you see of people coming all the way over from Pretoria and supporting us.
“It is one game at a time now.”
