We Won’t Dwell On This Game, We Just Have To Move On – Peter Shalulile

Mamelodi Sundowns continued their unbeaten run in the DStv Premiership with a 2-2 draw against SuperSport United in the Tshwane derby on Wednesday through goals on either side of half time by Neo Maema and Peter Shalulile, on a night of thrilling action.

The Brazilian’s striker Shalulile struck at the start of the second half to double Downs’ lead, scoring his ninth league goal of the season in the process to extend his sensational from in front of goal. However the dream of continuing with their successive run of clean sheets, was short lived as Matsatsantsa got back in action with two goals to equalize and split the points between the two sides. The Namibian international striker expressed his disappointment over not winning the match on the day:

To be honest it could have been three points, I’m feeling a little bit sad but we won’t dwell on this game, we just have to move on. We take the point although it’s not what we planned to do, but we still have the next game to go play and we are looking forward to that.”

Bafana Ba Style grappled against a tough United which posed a threat in the opening stages of the encounter with a double chance at goal. It did not take long for Downs’ leading goal scorer to find the back of the net when play resumed after the break, adding to his goal scoring tally in the new season. Masandawana continue to be the leading team in the DStv Premiership and they are yet to meet opponents that will hand them their first loss of the season.

“When we went into the break we spoke and fixed up the little things and then we came back and managed to score the second goal. But as we went on they also scored, but what can we do though, it’s football and we move on.” said Shalulile.

Mamelodi Sundowns will be in action on Saturday 27 November at the ABSA TUKS Stadium as they welcome Sekhukhune United.

    That is the right mentality, we can not remain in the last game, games are unfolding so fast. It was a painful derby draw. We don’t have a future in the past,even for us supporters we must move with the cloud, its game on. We can only remind players that we win matches by scoring more goals than the opponents .Just score as many goals as possible in one match.Its allowed for a player to score 5 goals in one match and we will try to find a name for it.Now there is no name for it, we are used to a brace etc
