Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane preferred not to dwell on the crowd trouble at King Zwelithini Stadium on Friday as he rather praised his side's performance after shooting down AmaZulu.
Sibusiso Vilakazi netted a brace while Ricardo Nascimento scored from the penalty spot as the Brazilians extended their lead at the top of the standings to seven points with a 3-1 win on Friday evening.
The match was interrupted on the hour-mark after home supporters launched objects onto the pitch following Vilakazi's second goal, which appeared to be offside.
“I think we need to focus a little bit on the positives, which is the game, and leave the other stuff [referring to the crowd trouble]. I think we played well in terms of our offensive organisation. We found pockets in the middle to receive the ball with Themba Zwane and Gaston [Sirino],” Mosimane told SuperSport TV.
“Percy Tau was eager to score but he was caught offside [often]. I know one is not offside. It’s very difficult to trace Percy as an assistant referee. We played well, our third man running was very good. We’ve been working on it the whole week. You feel good when they do what you have practiced.
“We knew that their last four drag the line and we found spaces in between that’s how we scored all the goals. We found spaces in front of the back four. The third man running was helping us. We needed the goals because you never know what’s going to happen at the end of the season.
“Seven points [gap] is not enough you lose one game and anything can happen but it’s good to get that gap because we won’t be playing in four games. We won’t be around, we are leaving for Rwanda tonight. It’s a good way to leave.”
