Downs happy to maintain 'Invincibles' target

Premiership

Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi felt his side did well in challenging conditions as they maintained their unbeaten run with a 1-1 draw at Stellenbosch FC.

The Brazilians, who lead the league standings currently, had to come from behind in the second half to force a stalemate thanks to a Lyle Lakay strike.

"The game panned out the way we thought it would," Mngqithi said post-match.

"But unfortunately, the wind was too much and it made the game not flow in the way we would have wanted.

"I thought when we got the equaliser we would gain control of the game.

"But I think we were a little bit too anxious and we ended up spoiling very good moments as the wind was favouring us.

"We sometimes over-hit the balls but I think we did well.

"It’s just that it’s not nice to drop points."

Sundowns stretched their lead to 11 points at the top of the DStv Premiership standings over surprise-package Royal AM in second.

The Brazilians next face a top-of-the-table clash against the very same opponents in a battle of the big spenders on Wednesday.

Kick-off is at 15:30.
