Following their draw against Gaborone United in their derby, Township Rollers attacker Edwin Moalosi expressed delight in the outcome of the encounter.
The tightly contested derby ended in a 2-2 stalemate through Moalosi's brace, whilst GU netted through Thatayaone Kgamanyane and Tumisang Orebonye at the UB Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Moalosi had given Rollers the lead going into half time, before he was called on to to equalize in the 93rd minute of the contest.
Despite the draw, coach Nikola Kavazovic's troops remain unbeaten on top of the log table with 27 points from 11 matches in the BTC Premiership so far.
Although Moalosi said they wanted to bag a win, he noted they are content with the draw after coming from behind.
"We wanted the three points, but we didn't. We could have won it, but we'll take the point, GU is a big team, so getting a point against them is something, especially that we also came from behind," said Moalosi.
Popa will now focus on their MascomTop 8 encounter against BDF XI on Monday, December 11, at the National Stadium.
