Steve Barker praised his players after the University of Pretoria's hard-fought 1-0 win over Orlando Pirates at Mbombela Stadium.
A late Thabo Mosadi strike sealed AmaTuks' third successive victory in the league and Barker believes they got their tactics right.
"The effort that the players gave , it was always going to be tough , I think our tactics worked today." Said Barker.
" We got behind the ball, they had a lot of possession , I think we limited them to a few chances and we were hoping, the longer the game went, we might nick one and it just went to plan.
"Credit to the players, I'm very proud of them, they've done themselves proud, and the institution very proud today."
" Credit to them (AmaTuks Players), they stuck to the game plan that we told them, You know now winning three games on the trot, it's massive for this club, it's great."
