TS Galaxy head coach Sead Ramovic showered praise on Rulani Mokwena and his Mamelodi Sundowns technical team on Tuesday night.

Galaxy were up against it after conceding early through Rushine De Reuck’s header and were 2-0 down shortly before the hour-mark courtesy of a tap-in by Peter Shalulile.

The Rockets survived waves of dangerous attacks from Sundowns and eventually pulled a goal back in stoppage time thanks to a penalty goal by Djakaridja Traore but the game was already beyond them.

Ramovic gave a huge praise to the Brazilians' coaching staff for the way they setup the team and the quality of their players.

"If you concede early in the game, 1-0 down then it's not easy, especially against a fantastic team like Sundowns," Ramovic told SuperSport TV.

"But I also have to give the coaching team from Sundowns a huge credit, how they prepare the team, a lot of structure, fantastic players.

"You know you also need a coach to put the right things and so a huge credit to the coaching team and also for a fair tough game.

"We, I think we also played well. We tried after the 1-0 to try come back and score. We tried everything we could. Of course small details we still have to improve." 

The Galaxy tactician went on to say that he was encouraged by the fact that they finally scored a goal and will build on from that performance.

"But we're on a good way, we also scored, it's the right step in the right direction. I give respect and credit to my team. We will soon win the next games. I have absolutely no doubt and we will still fight for top eight," he
