Mogoditshane Fighters' coach, Enos Mmesi has said their strategy of not giving Mochudi Centre Chiefs room was key in their famous Mascom Top 8 victory on Sunday.

Fighters displayed one of their best performances this season on Sunday and scored three crucial away goals, leaving favourites, Chiefs with a mountain to climb.

"We knew they have skillful players and we did not want to give them too much room to move because that could hurt us. We had anticipated to see the likes of Pontsho (Moloi) in their line up and he was not there so that also worked for us," Mmesi told Mmegi Sport yesterday. He is of the view that Chiefs undermined them and did not give their all in that match. "With due respect, I think they won the match before they played it. They are a very good side and on paper they had an upper hand before that match," he added. Of the eight teams in the competition, Fighters were seen as the weakest side because of their current position on the log and Chiefs were poised to have it easy in the quarterfinals.  Ofana Motsumi scored two goals with James Moloi netting the third to hand Chiefs their second defeat of the season. Zimbabwean midfielder, Elvis Meleka scored Chiefs only goal of the match in the dying minutes.
