Mamelodi Sundowns attacker Sibusiso Vilakazi admitted that Golden Arrows wasn't an easy team to beat following a hard-fought 1-0 win which saw Pitso Mosimane's men return to the summit of the PSL log.
The Brazilians needed a first half strike from defender Bangaly Soumahoro to topple Clinton Larsen's side in front of a packed Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu.
"It was a very tough game against Golden Arrows. They gave us a good fight. As you can see in the first half, we played against the wind. So, we were struggling a bit to get hold of the ball so one chance through a set-piece we were able to get there," Vilakazi told SuperSport TV.
"It was a tough performance. It was a well worth victory and we will take it from here," he said.
On a more personal level, Vilakazi, who was named man of the match for his efforts throughout the afternoon, believes he's still hasn't rediscovered his old form.
However, he is confident that he will soon hit the ground running and start scoring goals on a regular basis for Masandawana.
"Personally, it was a fair game for myself and it would have been nice to get a goal, but we have to keep pushing. You have to go through the tough times, you have to go through challenges where I haven't scored up to so far," he explained.
"I will keep on pushing and somewhere somehow it's going to open up and once it opens up the goals will keep coming," added Vilakazi.
