Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane gave credit to AmaZulu for refraining from parking the bus in their Absa Premiership clash.

Mosimane bemoaned SuperSport United's defensive appoach in the recent Tshwane derby stalemate, but had no such complaints in Umlazi.
"The game was good for everybody neh? I always say it’s good when people play football, when we go toe-to-toe, punch for punch, and they matched us AmaZulu in the first half,” Mosimane said.
“They came and they never sat back and the game was there. We were going and they were coming and it’s the way football should be.
“Not this issue of playing five at the back and parking buses that usually happens. I think you saw that last week, playing on the break... play football and you can score.
“Because it doesn’t mean you got the best defense ever. But we believe in going forward, we believe in scoring goals and the goals difference or goals for says it. This is football, we must play football like this, entertainment.
“I think you guys [the media] got stories to write, four goals, beautiful neh? Zero-zero..."
