Morgan Gould believes Kaizer Chiefs showed their title-winning mettle in their 2-1 victory over Supersport United at the weekend.

Lehlohonolo Majoro scored first for Chiefs at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday, only for Kermit Erasmus to pull one back for United.

But Majoro's 65th-minute winner took Amakhosi back into a four-point lead at the top of the standings, while also maintaining their undefeated Premiership season.

Gould, who is still sidelined with a season-ending injury, praised the Glamour Boys' efforts against Matsatsantsa.

"Congratulations to the guys; we played extremely well and we deserve all the points in this game," he told the club's official website.

"I felt that we started a bit slow trying to do too much. In the second half we really played well and the guys fought for each other on the pitch.

"The conditions in particular in the first half were not favourable for both teams but the guys should get the credit for putting in a good fight.

"I also think we did not panic when Supersport United scored an equaliser. The guys continued to play their normal game. I felt that this was not the case in the past where we would panic if a team scores against us.

"I think there is a clear sign of character in this team and we are going to get even better as the season progresses."

Gould also wished to thank those who have supported him and fellow defender Jimmy Tau as the duo battle their way to full fitness.

"It was nice for me and Jimmy (Tau) to join the guys during camp in Polokwane," the Bafana Bafana centre-back said.

"The Technical Team and everyone were welcoming and when we went out to greet the fans they were fantastic as always.

"This is when you really feel you are part of a big family. Thank you to everyone for the well wishes.

"I am happy with the progress of the rehabilitation and once again the medical team I have been working with has been excellent. I am sure for all the other guys who are out with long term injuries feel the same."
