SuperSport United’s Kaitano Tembo has praised the never-say-die attitude of his side after they scored a late winner to move out of the relegation zone.

United scored a late winner to secure a 3-2 win over Free State Stars on Wednesday and have now moved back to 14th position and are a point ahead of second-from-bottom Ajax Cape Town.

“But I am really happy with the fighting spirit from the guys. I think they left everything in the field today and that’s what we have been asking from them,” Tembo told SuperSport TV.

“Today they showed that they can still give us that and we are really proud of them.”
