The Brazilians cemented top spot in the Absa Premiership for another week after defeating Chilli Boys 2-0 on Wednesday evening.
“A difficult game, not very difficult in a sense that they gave us problems. They just gave problems a little bit on the breaks. They only got a few one-on-ones with Denis Onyango and that was about it,” Mosimane told SuperSport after the game.
“We knew once we score, we can just shut it up a little bit. We managed them not to get behind us that’s it. We didn’t move properly in midfield, there’s a little bit of anxiety you must understand. They know they have to win. So somewhere somehow I don’t worry much about the free flow. We got the goals and move on.
“We managed the game. We knew they will push up and be emotional and then we go out [on counter-attack] as we did with Percy (Tau) and (Khama) Billiat for the second goal. We knew they can’t sit back because they are losing.
“This is not a time to show off, it’s a time to get results you score and look after the game. It’s tough times.”
