Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rulani Mokwena says it's hard to pick out just one player for praise after another good team performance.

Sundowns extended their unbeaten record this season with a 3-0 victory over Swallows FC on Sunday evening.

Mokwena was impressed with the entire squad on the day and also praised the impact of the second-half substitutes.

"It's good for confidence. It's good for the morale of the team. The momentum is good. Once again congratulations for a team effort," the Sundowns coach told SuperSport after the game.

"It's very difficult to get any single player to stand out. The technical team, support staff, the supporters and the entire group of players.

"The subs who were very good. Riva [Coetzee] came in, stabilised the midfield. Vila [Vilakazi] helped us to change a little bit the structure and the organisation and of course Neo [Maema] still helps us when we take [Thabiso] Kutumela to keep up the pressure in and around the box.

"It's the work that we do when we are in possession which is very important. How we use the ball is important. Minimising the turnovers. The structure to maintain you hear us talking about the extra pass. Because the extra pass makes you stay together because when you stay together you maintain your compactness. It's what gives you the rest defence. The rest defence then gives you the ability to counter press.

"Even in the PSL, how many times you find 4 v 3s and 3 vs 2, we don't want to suffer those sort of situations where numerically we are inferior to the opposition on turnovers. Our work when we are in possession in relation to how we use the ball and where we position ourselves becomes very important to be able to defend well."
