The team stumbled out of the blocks last Saturday with a 1-0 defeat to their nemesis Royal AM last night, but the nature of the loss was that of bad luck, which led to optimism that they could turn things around quickly, which they did against The People's Team.

This was reflected in the positivity on social media judging by the glowing praise that was directed at coach Arthur Zwane and his charges.

Aya Bakang said:

"A new era begins with the same destiny as upcoming champions home kick-start their title. The boys were sharp and The young maestro Mdudusi lived up to his expectations. Hope Sundowns is watching. The flames have been passed on from one legend to the one in making."

Zintle Mfumbata said:

"Sundowns FC is not ready for us come Saturday."

Simphiwe Khumalo said:

"Yusuf Maart is a real deal. Matlou is very solid. Sekgota cuts like a hot knife. Kwinika is a defender he thinks he is. Overall quality young squad. A solid strong goal poacher will complete the puzzle. Even Gabuza or Grobbler will do with this current team. Once this team gels well together the"ll be serious tears all round."
