Mamelodi Sundowns head coach Pitso Mosimane is pleased to see Percy Tau shooting more after he netted a brace against Free State Stars.
Tau opened the scoring with a brilliant free-kick in the first half, before netting Sundowns' second goal with a strike from 25 yards that sailed into the top corner.
The Brazilians coach is delighted that the Bafana Bafana international is no longer dribbling without producing an end product.
"I thought the game was long finished but it's okay. I'm disappointed with the late goal because it's the last five seconds of the game and we're not picking the player up. He was free. It spoils the whole thing. We wanted to keep the clean sheet but I'm happy for Percy Tau, once he shoots he scores," Mosimane told SuperSport TV after the match.
"I told him, 'stop dribbling, how many dribblings do you want? You've got to shoot', and he shot. And the free-kick, he's practising it hey. I'm so happy he's practising them all the time. Practise makes perfect. We were stable, we controlled the game. We're happy, three points, it's important."
Mosimane went on to bemoan a string of injuries his team have suffered heading into their CAF Champions League clash with Morocco's Wydad Casablanca at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday (15h00).
"Anthony [Laffor] is on crutches, Khama [Billiat] is injured, Leo [Castro] made it through a late fitness test, [Tiyani] Mabunda is injured. We need to make sure that we look after the team. A team that played tonight is a team I trusted. If you're in the team of Mamelodi Sundowns, you have to play, there's no first team and second team."
