Shalulile: We worked hard on set-pieces


Mamelodi Sundowns striker Peter Shalulile reveals that the Brazilians worked hard on set-pieces in the build-up to their 1-0 victory over Orlando Pirates.

Sundowns began the new year with three points after defeating the Bucaneers 1-0 to cement top spot and maintain their unbeaten start to the season.

The Brazilians got the match-winning goal through Brian Onyango via a set-piece and the Namibian international admitted it was a deliberate ploy to target Pirates at free-kicks.

"It wasn't an easy game. They're a good team all round," the former Highlands Park striker told SuperSport TV.

"I give credit to my teammates. They kept us in the game and we got the win.

"We worked on set-pieces. We amde sure every set-piece was a goal and we got one in the first-half and we made sure it was a goal."
