Chiefs were stifled out of the game by Steve Komphela's defensive approach but Manyama snatched the winner with virtually the last kick of the game.
"First of all I want to thank the fans for coming through week in and week out, secondly, we fought you know. We played against a team that plays with five defenders and one sweeper," Manyama told SuperSport TV after receiving his Man of the Match award.
"We play like this every week but people think we don't wanna play, we're playing one-on-one each and every week. All these teams are coming with man-to-man.
"We're trying to break them down but it's not working but the fighting spirit we have within ourselves, we never give up. You know we play until the last minute," he went on.
"Once again I wanna thank the fans for coming through, you can see, they're happy and when they're happy, we're very happy."
The former Cape Town City midfielder admitted that it was frustrating not being able to find clear chances.
"Ja obviously we were trying to do certain stuff but sometimes it doesn't work out, it's frustrating for the fans, it's frustrating for us you know. But ja we'll keep on trying to get better, week in and week out," he said.
