Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi says the win 4-0 win over Marumo Gallants was not as easy as people think.

A brace from Peter Shalulile and further strikes from Themba Zwane and Pavol Safranko guided the DStv Premiership champions to a big win on Sunday evening.

Mngqithi was pleased with how the players applied themselves in the contest against a side everybody thinks is not that great.

"To be honest, there's a lot of positives. Another clean sheet. Very important for us. Four goals. A very good outcome," Mngqithi told SuperSport after the game.

"We're a bit greedy because we've still got a deficit of probably one or two more goals. But we still have one more game in this cycle because the last cycle we scored is less than what we wanted to score. But the number of clean sheets have already been achieved in this cycle.

"So the players are really working very hard. The spirit is looking good in the group. Everyone is putting a shoulder in what we are trying to do. A very good attitude. One is always worried when you play these teams that everyone thinks we are going to win against easily.

"Those games require a little bit more in terms of intrinsic motivation where the willpower to try and say we want to dominate and if possible those are the games we want to score as many goals as possible."

However, the mentor said the match was not as easy as the scoreline suggested and paid some credit to Gallants for their second-half performance.

"But the truth of the matter is it what was not as easy as people think. The moment we scored the second goal I knew we have a chance of scoring more.

"The scary part was their high press. It destabilised us a bit and forced us in to many long balls and immediately we managed to find a double wide with Mosa on the left. It created a few more problems for them on our left channel but truth be told the second half they put up a better fight," he added.
