Evans Rusike struck in the second half to hand Maritzburg a 1-0 win over the Brazilians on Sunday afternoon.

Davids thought his charges deserved the progress to the next round after putting in the effort.

"You have give the players credit for the work they put in today, they stuck to the plan," Davids told SuperSport after the game.

"It's never easy playing against Sundowns, you don't want to sit that deep but they push you back. They could have scored one or two goals in the end.

"But credit to the players, they deserve to go to the next round for all the work they put in pre-season and today.

"The stuck to the task, it's never easy coming here. I think the first half is what we wanted to do, not allow them to settle on the ball. But we have a lot of stuff to work on but well don to the boys, they deserve it."

Denis Weidlich echoed Davids' sentiments after picking up the Man of the Match award.

"We fought so hard. We had a very hard pre-season, we knew what will come. We did very well against Sundowns last time, we made some mistakes but we learned from it. For this season, we set so much targets so this is brilliant to qualify for the next round," he added.

Divids Mara, what have Pitso done to you, Dunusas are your hoodoo team, whether the game is played at day or night you make sure that you get the results. Pitso, a good coach will never have problems with any team that park the bus, the easy method to do is to take off the wheels and those in the bus will fall off!

But you seem to finding it easy to win against Pitsa and you did while you still intern and now as head coach surely this is no fluke,you did with competetive crucial games not just any games.
