Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane says he told Hlompho Kekana to take long-range shots as he knew that Orlando Pirates keeper Wayne Sandilands tends to leave his goal-line often.

Sundowns beat Pirates 3-1 at the Orlando Stadium on Wednesday night to bounce back to winning ways.

Kekana scored two goals in the tie with his second goal being a special one after beating Sandilands from the Sundowns half.

“We knew the strengths and weaknesses of the players who come from us and are at Pirates, hence the goal. We had to press the goalkeeper, he is always off the line, we know that. We told Kekana to go for it, it is his speciality,” said Mosimane.

The win saw Sundowns get back to winning ways after suffering three successive defeats.
