The Buccaneers returned to winning ways in the Absa Premiership with a 1-0 win over Bloemfontein Celtic on Sunday afternoon.

"I think we had a very good planning of the game in every aspect from Tuesday. We dominated as usual, we created chances," Micho told SuperSport TV after the match.

"At halftime we focused on bringing ourselves to scoring positions and Musa [Nyatama] scored from the same thing we anticipated in the middle from deeper position. Congratulations to him and all the team members.

"We worked very hard, the mental block that was in front of us, six games without a win, when you have such mental block even the legs are logged. I believe with winning this is how the legs are unlocked and we can play our football. To play good defensively, not allowing the opposition to have chances and dominating in the middle and to convert chances. This is the beauty of the game, it is what is inviting."

The former Uganda national team coach went on to say that he appreciated the home crowd, who sang their lungs out throughout the match.

"I want to appreciate this crowd here, football is played because of this supporters. They are amazing. I'm really touched to come to this stadium and environment. We are happy that we won in a very tough environment."
