SuperSport United  coach Kaitano Tembo was pleased with the contribution made by Warriors forward Kuda Machachi on his debut for the club today despite losing to Mamelodi Sundowns.

The former Chicken Inn man moved to SuperSport from Orlando Pirates just after the AFCON finals and came on as  a substitute today in the Pretoria derby, much to the satisfaction of his coach and fellow countryman Tembo.

“Those two (Thamsanqa Gabuza and Mahachi) are still finding their feet in terms of understanding our structure. I’m happy with their effort and contribution as well. They will get better with time.” Tembo told SuperSport TV after the game.

“We’re not there yet, physically I think we can improve, especially with game time. We will get better with our second game. I was happy with the overall performance of the guys, we kept on fighting and probing. We just have to improve in taking our chances,” he added.
