Bucs progressed through to the final of the competition after sinking rivals Amakhosi for the second time in a space of four weeks by the same scoreline.

โ€œIt was definitely not an easy game. Kaizer Chiefs is a great team to play against. Playing Kaizer Chiefs twice in a row in a period of two weeks [four weeks] is not easy. So the guys gave in a great push and we were fortunate to come out with a victory. We created the chances and lucky for us we managed to convert them,โ€ Mlambo told SuperSport TV.

โ€œWhen youโ€™re playing against the likes of Mido [George Maluleka] and [Willard] Katsande but we got Musa [Nyatama] as well experience, I got [Thabiso] Kutumela in front of me, heโ€™s a great number ten. He plays in between the lines. I have [Thembinkosi] Lorch. So it was difficult competition in midfield. They packed the midfield and we had to pack it as well. We managed to pull through and dominated it if I could say.โ€

Mlambo was humble in accepting his award giving credit to his teammates.

โ€œA performance supported by the great performance of my players [teammates]. I mean no man is an island I wouldnโ€™t have done it alone. So with their great performance it singled me out but itโ€™s a token going to all of them. They put in a great shift and we all became victorious.

โ€œThe technical team sleep late they donโ€™t sleep sometimes and they prepare well to help us improve our game.โ€

The former Bidvest Wits midfielder added that Amakhosi committed a big mistake by letting them have the ball all the time.
