Pitso: We used our experience

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says his charges used experience to control the game during their 1-0 win over Platinum Stars.
Khama Billiat struck in the second minute of the game as Sundowns clinched three points at Dikwena, who remain winless.
Mosimane insisted that Stars were a tough side to get over and many teams will struggle to break them down.
"We were helped by the [early goal], it was typical of the Sundowns move, Kekana finding Khama behind the defence. Hard-earned win hey, we were sweating for this win," the former Bafana Bafana mentor told SuperSport TV after the match.
"Within a short space of time Roger has done exceptionally well with this team, from the English coach to sort out the mess that was here. He has done really well. Sometimes we undermine our local coaches, he has done exceptionally well.
"They did put us under pressure a little bit. We used a little bit of experience to control the game, slow it a little bit sometimes, especially in the first half."
Mosimane was quizzed about their quarter-final exit in the CAF Champions League and he said that it was a bitter pill to swallow but they will try again next year.
"The yellow nation believes in us, they expect us to win. They're not happy we lost [in the CAF Champions League] but it's penalties what can we do. We will go again next year hey. At the end of the day we were solid at the back.
"In my substitutions I'm trying to make everyone happy but I have to keep the core of the team. I also have to do my own politics because I have good players who are not happy when they don't play."
