Man of the match Bernard Parker praised Lehlohonolo Majoro for showing desire when he came onto score the winner as Kaizer Chiefs beat Wits 2-1 at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.
Parker added that after the previous game, their coach Stuart Baxter had given them some harsh words about their performance, and believed that for most of the match they showed a better mental focus.
Parker was pleased with his combination with Kingston Nkhatha, who he set up to score the first goal of the night.
"In our last game we know we made some mistakes, we know we were not switched on in certain areas, sometimes we have moments in the game where we rise, but then we're down again, but it's all about mental steel, mental strength.
"The coach was a little bit harsh with us, he gave us some harsh words, and tells us we need to stretch ourselves, and definitely today we stretched ourselves. We had longer periods of good possession and combinations, we went down a little bit, but we kept our mental focus and we got the result today and congratulations to Majoro.
"I started a little bit out wide, with Siya behind Kingston, but I still managed to come forward and get into good positions, and the combination with Kingston has been good, and he got a goal.
"Same with Majoro, he came in and he showed some desire, and he got a goal as well. Upfront we're looking good and defensively we're also getting stronger and stronger."
