“The game was very tough, but we had to do what we had to do. They scored first and we had to fight for the goals that we scored.

“Things we do during the game is what we do at training, so it’s easy for us to see through situations like that even under difficult circumstances.

“But we are always working to get things right,”

Sundowns are on 49 points, while Pirates on 45 points in second.
