The Buccaneers needed a first-half own goal form Gaona Modisane to secure a 1-0 win over the Chilli Boys on Wednesday evening.

Mlambo went on to praise the likes of Mpho Makola, Happy Jele and Musa Nyatama for helping the side see out the win after they were reduced to 10 men for the final 20 minutes.

“Mpho Makola it was his first game [of the season], he gave us a good game. He kept us on the run and helped us to defend. Musa [Nyatama] as well, he’s a senior player, he’s managing the game well," Mlambo told SuperSport.
 
"Our defence, captain Happy [Jele] they make everything easy for me in the middle of the park. They’re giving me all the credit but to be obvious I think this award deserves to go to the team,” he continued.
 
“To manage to come out with the three points here in PE playing with a man short is not an easy fight and they pulled through today. It’s an award to the technical team, the substitutions they made were spot on,”
