Interim boss Arthur Zwane praised his Kaizer Chiefs players for a 'disciplined' performance in defeating Wydad Casablanca 1-0 in their CAF Champions League semi-final first leg.

Samir Nurkovic scored the only goal of the game at the Mohamed V Stadium after 34 minutes to hand Amakhosi a slender advantage going into next week's clash at home.

Zwane, alongside fellow assistant Dillon Sheppard, who has now led the side to three successive victories, explained it was important not to concede a goal.

Bruce Bvuma was named Man-of-the-Match for his efforts for Chiefs, with Zwane emphasising that the job is only half done.

He said on the club's website: "We came here to do the business and we did exactly that. We are happy with the result, but we know it's not yet over. We have the second leg back home in Johannesburg and we will try and finish it off there.

"We've done what we came here for, we kept a clean sheet and we wanted a goal or two. The one is okay. They will open up a bit when they come to play us and we will try and punish them. We have another 90 minutes, it will be difficult.

"We were very disciplined and we hope to keep a clean sheet at home as well."
