Molekwa calls for Polokwane to remain humble

News

Rise and Shine completed a double over Sundowns after claiming a 3-2 win at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Molekwa was pleased to collect three points at home for the first time this season, but he doesn't want the result to go to his players' heads.

"Finally we got it right, credit must go to the players because they fought really hard. If you can check we conceded early and I was not happy. That's what I told them at halftime that I was not happy with the goal we conceded because I believed we could have done better. We could have organised and focused better," Molekwa told SuperSport TV.

"If you play a team like Sundowns they are good in reading those situations. After I spoke to them that they need to get a goal in the first 10 minutes [after halftime] so it can bring us back into the game.

"We didn't start well at least for the first 35 minutes but the last 10 minutes we looked good going forward and that gave us courage to say if we can play those combination passes and get behind them, then we can get something. Fortunate enough we managed to score and score but Sundowns came back strong they equalised but the boys didn't give up they kept on fighting and we managed to get a winner.

"I think it's a good win because we wanted this to improve our position on the log. I also hope that this win won't carry them into their heads because sometimes we win today and come the next game we lose or we win before we play. I hope they will focus in these five games we're going to play in January because they're so important for us. We are playing tough teams I hope the level of concentration will be high and we will keep on working hard."
