“I love scoring goals. It was a good performance all-round. I think I gotta give credit to the whole team and the coach,” Grobler tlold SuperSport TV.

“Last week we struggled a bit and the coach made a bold decision to change our formation tonight. I think it paid off.

“Massive credit to the boys and one special mention to Sipho Mbule. He’s coming [in] at a difficult time. He’s been outstanding at training. I think he showed tonight why he’s in the team. Well done to him.”

The former Ajax Cape Town striker further explained that in league matches there’s more opportunities that presents themselves and he has worked hard on capitalising on those small chances.

“In the league you get chances like that, it’s something I’ve worked on lately; looking for those little opportunities.

“I haven’t scored as many goals as I wanted to and I needed to capitalise on moments like that. It’s just a mental thing, being sharp and working hard at training. I think it paid off tonight,” he said.
