Neeskens happy with win

Neeskens left the Loftus Stadium happy after watching his team beat Maritzburg United 1-0 during the League match played yesterday.   The Brazilians deserved to have scored at least 3 goals after creating a lot of chances but were let down by poor shooting in front of goal with striker Katlego Mphela being the main culprit.   However the coach said he was confident that his players will start to score more often very soon.   "We had only 2 days to prepare for this match and had 9 players on international duty and 7 of them in the starting line-up," says Neeskens.   "I am happy with the way my team played to get the 3 points and believe we should have won the game by a difference of 4 to 5 goals. We should have finished the game long before as we created goal scoring chances that should have made the scoreline different.   "I can't blame the strikers as its every player's duty to score goals but I am happy that at least we have started to create those chances."   Despite his team taking maximum points Neeskens lashed out at referee Philip Tinyani for what termed a 'disgusting' performance during yesterday's game.   The Sundowns coach was spitting fire especially after Tinyani yellow carded goal scorer Elias Pelembe instead of the opposition defender after Pelembe was fouled.   "I hate to talk about these things but the referee's decision to give Pelembe a yellow card was disgusting," says Neeskens.
