Maluleka opened the scoring midway through the second half before Twala netted the winner 15 minutes later to cancel out Jeremy Brockie’s equaliser and hand Amakhosi a hard-fought 2-1 win.
“It’s a good feeling to always be on the scoresheet, and we managed to get a positive result so we’re very happy about that,” ‘Mido’ told SuperSport after the match.
“It was high-intensity from the first whistle; it was very tactical and we tried to manage the game according to the coach’s instructions at half-time, and I think we executed that very well.
“By getting the second goal in the dying minutes, I think that also helped us a lot.”
Despite coming on for Bernard Parker with just under 30 minutes left on the clock, Twala made a telling contribution by grabbing the all-important goal to hand his side the full three-points, much to Maluleka’s delight.
“He [Twala] made an impact after taking over from Bernard [Parker]; he did very well especially getting on the scoresheet, so I was very, very happy for hm,” he added.
The win sees Chiefs extend their winning-streak to four league matches, as they move up into third ahead of Mpumalanga Black Aces, who face Orlando Pirates on Sunday afternoon.
