Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was overjoyed to have Themba Zwane back in his arsenal for the match against SuperSport United.
The creative midfielder's influence was on display as he inspired a 2-1 victory for the Brazilians.
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Mosimane was left fuming as Zwane was booked in the match against Bidvest Wits.
That yellow card was Zwane's fourth of the season and he was therefore unavailable for the match against Orlando Pirates.

Mosimane made special mention of Zwane following his team's victory in the Tshwane derby.
Mosimane said, "Whenever Mshishi is around, he plays the music. You know the story."
The Downs mentor added, "Look at the midfield today. It's more like we have one man or two more people extra in the midfield because of Mshishi's movements."
