The Citizens below the title race wide open after beating the defending league champions 2-1 at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday evening.

Mokeke reveals McCarthy instructed them to change the way they pressed Pitso Mosimane's charges.

"It was a tough game. They pushed us far back in the first half. It was difficult to press them because they were playing in the pocket," Mokeke told SuperSport after the game.

"So second half, the coach told us that we have to go one-on-one because we losing, they can't go back and we have to press them. I think it worked out because they were playing more long balls. They couldn't play from the back and the early goal helped to give ourselves a morale-boost to get another one.

New signing Chris David got the winning goal from a set-piece, and Mokeke was overjoyed that the Dutch midfielder was able to secure three points with his first goal for the club.

"They always take the free-kicks at training, every free-kick we expect to go in so we have to be ready all the time. I was happy it went in so we got the three points today. That's all I'm about about," he concluded.
