It is exciting to see our midfielders starting to get the goals because what counts the most is when you have a team that can score goals from different angles because it is very difficult for opponents to tell where the goals are going to come from,” he added.
It was Vilakazi’s first goal of the season with the former Bafana Bafana international struggling for game time this term which has seen him make just four appearances in the PSL.
Mngqithi stated that those who work hard at training will be rewarded with some game time and gave an example of George Maluleka, who made just five starts in the league in the current campaign.
“One thing we do with the coaches that I work with is to reward good performances,” the former Lamontville Golden Arrows head coach explained.
“George Maluleka came on against Al-Hilal and he gave a good performance. He was in the 18-man squad and he got an opportunity to play.”
Sundowns club captain Hlompho Kekana has also found game time hard to come by this season and he is likely to start against Algerian side CR Belouizdad in the Caf Champions League on Friday.
Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena has admitted that Bafana Bafana’s 2-0 defeat by Sudan has left them “emotionally not in the right space” with “egos bruised” but that will not drive them to seek revenge in Friday’s Caf Champions League Group B clash against Al Hilal Omdurman.
South Africa were denied a spot at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations by Sudan at Al Hilal Stadium last Sunday, the same venue Sundowns will be playing on Friday.
