In a lively League tie, bottom-placed Usuthu had the log leaders sweating after Bongani Ndulula drew first blood in the 22nd minute at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

However, George Lebese equalised on the hour before scoring a stoppage-time winner in Durban.

Mugeyi, who was promoted to the hotseat following Craig Rosslee's sacking last month, said: "It was a fantastic game, sometimes football can be cruel. But I am proud of my boys, we played fantastic football, free-flowing football on both sides.

"You know we are still in our transition. I've changed a lot of things. I think we can see on our break, we are very quick and play attacking football.

"In the first half we were fantastic, we didn't give them much room to play. We could see they were getting frustrated. But we lost a bit of concentration and they got a equaliser.

"We kept going forward and unfortunately we gave away a stupid free-kick in the last minute and got punished.

"But I'm proud of my boys, they worked hard and they fought. I think if we keep playing like this we have got a very good chance of moving away from the danger zone," concluded the 'Silver Fox'.
