Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane was pleased to walk away with three points against Maritzburg United in a 'difficult' encounter at Loftus Versfeld.

Hlompho Kekana's impressive strike was enough to secure a 1-0 win over the relegation-threatened Team of Choice on Wednesday.

While it was a tough game for Sundowns, Mosimane singled out Ricardo Nascimento 's performance.

“The game is also about results. I think it was a difficult game. As you could see they fought hard and as I said they were going to play out wide using the pace of (Keletso) Makgalwa and we dealt with it earlier," Mosimane told SuperSport TV.

“I think we need to give credit to Ricardo [Nascimento] with everybody saying he is slow. He is not the fastest, but he has got the brains also because you can be fast and not close down the angles.

“He dealt very well with Keletso, our player did very well. This is what we saw when our players are on-loan. He gave us a hard time. He wanted to score against us and you could see that.

The former Bafana Bafana mentor also disappointed with Anthony Laffor's decision-making, despite the forward's form in recent weeks.

“First half decision-making especially on Laffor, both repetitions were not falling more for him. He made the wrong decisions.

“Also, there was a little bit of rush because he knows he has to score and seal it and that’s what killed us because we wanted to score early because he knows we are playing on the break."
