Defending Premier Soccer League (PSL) champions Mamelodi Sundowns recorded a tight 1-0 win over Golden Arrows in their PSL clash on Wednesday night at the Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu. The result helped the defending champions jump to fifth on the PSL log.

Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pits ‘Jingles’ Mosimane said he was satisfied with his side’s trip to KwaZulu-Natal which yielded a draw against AmaZulu and a win against Golden Arrows on Wednesday night and helped the side net a total of four out of a possible six points.

Mamelodi dominated the early stages of the match and enjoyed the lion share of possession for most of the match. The defending champions never looked dominant but also never got into any real trouble.

Briefly.co.za gathered that Lebohang Maboe scored for the Brazilians in the 44th minute of the match in what turned out to be a crucial taken opportunity.

TimesLive.co.za reported that the goal was Maboe’s second in the league for his new side. He joined Mamelodi Sundowns at the start of the 2018/19 season.

Mosimane was pleased with the changes he made to the side which drew against Amazulu on Sunday and said his players had also implemented the game plan to near perfection.

Mosimane said he would have liked to net six points during the coastal trip but conceded that Amazulu played well and deserved the draw. He reiterated that his side was in something of a rebuilding phase and that he was working on finding the right combinations.

Mamelodi Sundowns will play Bloemfontein Celtic on 3 October in their next PSL encounter.
