SuperSport's defence of the MTN8 title goes on after they defeated Chiefs 1-0 in the second leg of their semi-final to advance to the final.

Tembo claims it was important that his charges got their spaces right to stifle Amakhosi dangerman Khama Billiat.

“In the first leg we couldn’t get our distances right. We couldn’t deal with the space in front and the space behind. We squeezed well [the spaces]. We made sure he [Khama Billiat] didn’t have space to play. Even Castro,” Tembo told SuperSport TV.

“We knew as well that we needed to be a little bit patient. The pressure was on Chiefs, the longer it went at 0-0 the more they get frustrated,” he said.

Tembo went on to credit his troops for sticking to the game plan.

“You never know, if they had got one [goal] we could’ve been out. We needed to try and get them on transition. Credit to the guys they stuck to the game plan, we played well. We fought, you could see Dean [Furman] limping but fighting. That’s the attitude we need from the players,” he concluded.
