Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Manqoba Mngqithi heaped praise on the team's squad players after the 2-0 win over Baroka in the Premiership on Saturday.
Lyle Lakay put the Chloorkop outfit in front early in the second half, and after Bakgaga's Denwin Farmer was sent off Themba Zwane netted the second goal in stoppage time.
The victory consolidated the Brazilians' position at the top of the league standings where they enjoy a two-point lead over second-placed Swallows.
Mngqithi did not pick out anyone specific for praise after the game but noted that the team's fringe players all deserved the plaudits.
"In our planning for the season, we put out that we'd want to achieve 12 points in every five matches. The first cycle [of five games], we got 13 points and the second cycle we got 11 points and dropped one point. This gives us exactly what we wanted to achieve," Mngqithi said, according to Sowetan.
"There were times where we were forced to use players that are not playing regularly and they came in handy. We really appreciate what we've achieved but this is just a beginning."
