Mamelodi Sundowns coach Manqoba Mngqithi has said beating rivals Orlando Pirates 1-0 at the weekend during their DStv Premiership match without influential Temba Zwane shows they don’t depend on individuals.

The Brazilians collected three points from a full strength Pirates to stretch their lead at the top of the standings to three points even though they have played one more match than second-placed Swallows FC. “It was very important for us to win a big game like this without Themba Zwane because we have won so many games without Gaston Sirino‚” said Mngqithi.

“Winning this game without Themba Zwane is something that maybe most players would not have thought possible. It is important for the team not to depend on certain individuals‚ though we know the value that is attached to Themba Zwane and the value that is attached to Gaston when he is willing to play is very encouraging.
