Mosimane hopes injuries are a thing of the past for Billiat, whose future remains uncertain at Chloorkop amid protracted contract extension talks.

"I am happy to see Khama back," said Mosimane after the defeat of Dikwena at Royal Bafokeng Stadium.

"He has been injured. It's good for him to come and score.

"Unfortunately Percy's [Tau] goal was disallowed. I don’t know what happened, but I was not in a position to comment on that."

'Jingles' felt Downs were not at their best following the shock of their CAF Champions League quarter-final loss on penalties to Morocco's Wydad Casablanca last month.

"All in all you can see that we are coming from a shock. We were not really confident, we tried to keep the result more than going forward."

Mosimane's side will resume their league campaign after the FIFA international break against Kaizer Chiefs at Loftus Stadium on October 18.
