Rulani Mokwena was full of praise for goalkeeper Ronwen Williams after he kept another clean sheet in Tuesday’s 2-0 win over Swallows.
The clean sheet on Tuesday evening meant Williams has now recorded a 7th consecutive clean sheet and a 10th overall in the league:
“[Ronwen] has been very consistent, but they say a good boxer needs a good sparring partner, and he happens to have exceptional goalkeepers around him [Denis Onyango, Kennedy Mweene, Reyaad Pieterse & Jody Feburary] are exceptional, and they are led by a good human being Wendell Robinson – so its not only about ‘Ronza’. Tactically he’s at a very good level and his communication is very important to us,” says Mokwena.
Mokwena was also happy with the “important win” over Swallows.
“It was an important win against a very difficult team, we expected it to be difficult and it proved to be very difficult – these are the games that win you championships.”
“We played a lot faster – before the opponent arrives in the gaps and the spaces, the ball arrives. We found some complications with having a right footer on the left in the first half with Gaston, we also moved Themba Zwane out because he was being man-marked, and that freed up a little bit of space inside. Sometimes these things don’t work but that’s what we did and the players responded very well.”
Sundowns’ next game is in Kwa-Zulu Natal where they will meet Richards Bay FC on Friday night.
