Middendorp, who was the man at Chiefs last season until the final day, got one over his former club. He did this with the help of Moseamedi, who took his goal tally against the AmaKhosi.
The Maritzburg coach also revealed that his side were able to take advantage of Chiefs’ fatigue following their CAF Champions League exploits in Angola.
“We had a complete week to prepare it and this is a little bit of a handicap of a team travelling to Angola, not being really recovered,” Middendorp told SuperSport after the game.
“I could see it in the beginning and we have to be very honest. But this is part of the business. If you want to be on the international side, you have to manage this. To came to our advantage. The freshness I could see wasn’t there. But of course, we had to adjust in half-time. We had some problems with Khama [Billiat] out of his position.
“And good, we became more comfortable. We have the players who can make out of three or four chances two goals. I don’t know how Judas scored his goal. It was fantastic, outstanding. But this is his quality. Compliments to him, he was absolutely fantastic.”
