Sundowns lead the standings by one point with 51 points after 24 matches played, but do have two games in hand over second-placed AmaZulu in what has become a two-horsed title race.
After dropping points in their three last fixtures, Mngqithi pointed to his side being able to sufficiently recharge their batteries as the reason for their impressive return to winning ways.
It’s nice seeing Sundowns again coming back with a big fight, Mngqithi told “We anticipated this where for the first time in a very long time we were able to have two training sessions before a match.
“Because we always play every third day, but when we got the opportunity on the fourth day it gave us a little bit of a chance to recover better.
“We know when we are fully recovered we are good enough to beat any team.
Mngqithi hailed all involved in what he called a team effort from the coaching department to the full squad of players as Sundowns look set to lift their fourth consecutive league title.
“I must give all the guys credit, the entire coaching department and all the players, they really fought and knew how important today’s game was.
“I said it before that I knew we are ready psychologically and physically to really fight although we could’ve done better, I still believe there were some opportunities that were not utilised properly.
But credit should be given to the boys, they put up a good fight and they stuck to the gameplan and tactics.”
