Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane expressed happiness for Mogakolodi Ngele after the midfielder scored in a man-of-the-match display against Free State Stars on Sunday.
Ngele has featured sparingly for the Brazilians since switching alliances from Platinum Stars in the off-season.
However, the Botswana international bolstered his claim for regular game-time in Downs' 6-1 humiliation of Stars in the Telkom Knockout quarter-finals.
Mosimane said: "I am happy for Ngele, the poor boy needed a break. We have tried to introduce him slowly, so I am happy for him."
Meanwhile, 'Jingles' revealed he was far from happy when his men were 3-1 up at the break.
"I think the first half can be divided into two parts, the 3-0 and then 3-1. Had they scored a goal when they hit the post then we could have been talking something different.
"That was why I was very upset in the changeroom and made changes. I had to sub Billiat to have a three-man midfield."
He added: "We made sure a fullback must stay when one attacks. Then we controlled the game and the goals came."
