Pitso praised Jali for his leadership qualities in addition to praising the likes of Hlompho Kekana, Tiyani Mabunda and Lebogang Maboe.
‘I needed [Tiyani] Mabunda to come and help Andile and [Hlompho] Kekana in the midfield. Andile Jali showed great leadership, he is slowly getting to his level.
‘Lebo [Lebohang Maboe] was losing balls on the sides. He was looking good, but not really convincing. Not biting.
‘Very difficult game but at the end of the day we came to [Mdantsane] and got three points.
‘The first 20 minutes, the quality was there. But Sundowns, they are good people. They are not shrewd [ruthless]. We should have wrapped it up in the first half. We had clear chances,’ he concluded.
