Pitso: How We Beat Highlands Park…

Mamelodi Sundowns secured a victory in the dying minutes against Highlands Park and Pitso Mosimane explained how his side managed to breakthrough.

Sundowns climbed to second place on the league standings, with 17 points and one game in hand, as they head in to a big clash on the weekend.

However, the encounter against Highlands seemed priority for Mosimane and his side, as he constantly stresses about games in hand not being points in the bag.

“It was a tough game, but you know that when you play Highlands Park you are not going to have it easy. They are very strong, physically good and they don’t allow you the space to play,” Mosimane said.

“They are very good with one on ones and we knew about it. The only way to score was to take them away from their positions. Hlompho Kekana, for instance, was playing a little bit wider to open up the space and would take their central midfielder to the side. 

“We should have scored in the first half and overall we hit the post twice. At some point we felt it wasn’t going to come, but eventually we believed because we were pushing and they were tired in the second half, hence we found spaces to play. It was the first time I saw Highlands tired to be honest, but maybe they spent a lot of energy in the Telkom Knockout cup midweek. We were stronger in the end,” he added.
