Mamelodi Sundowns defender Khuliso Mudau expressed his delight with the team's triumph away to Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday evening.

Sundowns edged Chiefs 1-0 on Saturday evening and set a new league record of 12 straight wins thanks to a lone goal by Neo Maema.

The Brazilians also moved 17 points clear at the top of the table and are now 22 points clear of fifth-placed Chiefs.

Mudau, who was named Man of the Match, says it was a difficult game but they knew after scoring that Amakhosi will come at them and they locked the game.

"It was difficult game to be honest but I think we knew they gonna come second-half, they made a few changes going forward but at least I'm happy we managed to keep a cleansheet and we won the game," Mudau said on SuperSport TV.

Mudau was asked whether Sundowns took their foot off the pedal in the second stanza?

"No, obviously we knew they gonna come as I said but I'm very happy about the cleansheet and we managed to get one goal and we closed the door," he responded.

"And I'm very happy for the win, it was good game but I'm very happy to be honest."

The former Black Leopards full back credited the coaching trio of Rulani Mokwena, Manqoba Mngqithi and Steve Komphela for improving them at training following their record of 12 consecutive wins.

"Honestly it means a lot, it shows that we're working very hard even at training. I'm very happy to have coaches like coach Rulani (Mokwena), coach Manqoba (Mngqithi), coach Steve (Komphela), they are really helping us to make sure that we win these games," he added.
