Dennis Onyango received a red card late in the match after a defensive error by Mosa Lebusa, which required the Ugandan to intervene and prevent a clear goal scoring opportunity.

Kennedy Mweene came on for the goalkeeper and saw out the remainder of the game.

“Firstly, let’s compliment Sekhukhune they’ve got a clear model of play and of course a clear model of play that is to the strength of their players,” Mokwena told SuperSport TV after the win

“But also, credit to our players for fighting hard and showing a lot of resilience to bounce back from the last two draws. Not easy because the personality of the opposition changes.

“In the first half they had a very low block, and we knew we had to break it because if you don’t break it, they stay with the low block and continue with neglecting possession and coming a little bit to attack the space.

“But second half they made the double change and when Prince came in, with two strikers they pressed a little bit higher. We had to find better solutions on our build-up and once we got the momentum going, we stabilized a little bit.

“We looked a little bit better; we had more control up until the last minute where we lost a little bit of our structure because of the red card,” he added in reflection.
