Our players showed good determination and discipline to beat a stubborn SuperSport team. I feel we were good value for our win yesterday as we kept a strong structure which was complimented with some great attacking play.

Buthelezi was outstanding on his debut as he partnered Mngwengwe with aplomb. Another debutant, Zuke was also outstanding in midfield as he gave us a very calming influence in possession.

We had some close scares late on as SuperSport went route one but managed to hold on.

A much needed 3 points, clean sheet and all round solid performance from the team.

A fantastic team effort saw us secure a win this afternoon against SuperSport United in an action packed game from start to finish.

The first half was well executed from both sides. We used the ball well to play up into the last third while looking to score, but never took as much advantage of a brisk wind behind us. There were a number of opportunities for us to score, in particular when Mahachi was played into a promising position. Pieterse came out of the box to defend and couldnt control the ball, it deflected but Mahachi was just not able to get to it and guide it into its mark.

The teams went into the break with no score on the board and when they returned SuperSport came back dominating the first couple of minutes of play.

We did well on the par though this afternoon.The team looked composed and determined. This paid off in the 80th minute as Mahachi found the back of the net after Pieterse failed to hold onto a shot from Venter.

The game was far from over though, and SuperSport fought until the dying minutes for an equaliser. Gumede’s last 10 minutes were intense as he fielded a number of shots at goal from all angles.

A good win from the team today and a great morale booster ahead of our trip to play Chippa next weekend on the 21st.

A big thank you to our supporters who show dedication and belief in our squad.

We play our first home game of 2018 tomorrow as we host SuperSport United at the Princess Magogo Stadium, with a 15h30 kick-off.

It’s a must win game for us tomorrow. We have failed to secure maximum points in our last 12 outings, and its critical that we pull together and finish off on the chances we have been creating on the field.

The commitment of the players is evident when on the field, but this needs to be converted into goals in order for us to climb up the log standings

SuperSport have played two games already this year, and have yet to secure a win after drawing to Kaizer Chiefs and then losing 2-0 to Bidvest Wits in a midweek game this week. They are catching up their league matches and have only played 13 games so far this season.

We appeal to our supporters to get to the stadium and stand behind the team. Your presence at the stadium is important to us in our campaign. Should you not be there, the game will be televised on SS4 and we will keep you in the know with our play-by-play feed on social media.

We have secured another 3 points in our Diski campaign after a 3-2 win over Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr.Molemela stadium this morning.

The game had an explosive start for us and we dominated the play in the opening minutes. The early pressure paid off for us and saw Sabelo open the scoring in the 12th minute to give us an early lead on the hosts.

We allowed them to play back into the game though as we dropped back defensively, allowing them more time on the ball to create scoring opportunities. We were fortunate at first that they were not able to finish and managed to put another 2 goals on the board through some great play from Conco and Mgwaba.

Conco scored a fantastic volley shot after an amazing assist from Mgwaba. Mgwaba then had an opportunity to find the back of the net after super sub Jappie made a solid cross to the unmarked man in front of the goals and he made no mistake and scored!

Celtic found their feet though and managed to pull 2 goals back on us. Their first goal came in the 51st minute as Modise scored right after Naicker made a telling save. Mabaso then got their second as we were found wanting at the back in the 62nd minute of play.

The game went down to the wire, with skipper Sibisi putting his body on the line in the last minute of extra time to deny the home side the equaliser.

The team will return to Durban where they will play a home game next Sunday, the 21st, against Platinum Stars at 10h00.

Tomorrow our Diski team will continue their 2017/2018 Multichoice Diski campaign with an away game, top of the table clash against Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr.Molemela Stadium at 10h00.

We’ve had a successful season thus far. Having played 9 games; winning 7, drawing 1 and losing just 1, sitting top of the log, two points clear of Celtic

Both sides have played well up to this point. And it’s important to secure wins from now on, as there are only six games left in the season. Both teams will be hungry for the 3 points to try and push away from the rest of the teams in the competition.

The game is not part of the Diski Festival which is taking place at Tsakane Stadium, so it will not be televised.

We will however be keeping you up-to-date with the game over both Facebook and Twitter. So follow us to keep in the action during the game.

We would like to announce the signing of Sandile Zuke to the team

The 30 year old central midfielder started his professional career with Kaizer Chiefs in 2007 and has since then plied his trade with a number of South African clubs including Mpumalanga Black Aces, Bidvest Wits and more recently Chippa United.

He played a short stint overseas for Thai based club Jumpasri United who participate in the Toyota Thai League.

We would like to welcome Sandile to the club and wish him a successful time with us.

First half was probably the worst I’ve seen the team play since I joined. We were awful from back to front. After some strong words at half time and the introduction of Venter, we started to impose ourselves on our opponents but the damage was done in the first half as we trailed 2-0.

We went for broke, pulled one back but could not get the equalizer. I think on the balance of play Celtic deserved to win. They have assembled a very strong team and at times totally played us off the park.

We showed in the second half what we are capable of doing but need to do so over 90 minutes if we are to break this terrible run.

We have lost this afternoon against Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr.Molemela Stadium in Bloemfontein.

The home side dominated the play in the first half, managing to score twice before the break to set a tough foundation for us to pull back on in the second half.

They dominated possession on the field and managed to break our defence on a number of occasions to get into a favourable position to pull the trigger.

They opened the scoring in the 28th minute off the boot of Letsoalo. A run up the far flank set up the play. The ball was played at a tight angle into the box and through Gumede’s legs as he dived to try control the ball. Letsoalo, waiting in front of the goal, had an easy nudge in to open the scoring.

The second goal came in extra time of the first half after Hotto played himself into a favourable position in the box. Another tight angle play saw him play the ball past Gumede and put the second in for the home side.

Coach Larsen made a change from the break which saw Venter make his debut as he replaced Magubane. His inclusion in the game made a difference in play and saw a fresh set of play from us. Chideu was then bought into the mix too and we looked good on the ball again.

We enjoyed more shots on goal and eventually pulled one back when Chideu scored for us in the 68th minute. This had an encouraging effect on the side and we had a number more shots on goal but we could just not find the mark.

A tough day on the field today, but the side need to consolidate and turn things around as we prepare to play SuperSport United next week Sunday 14 January, at Princess Magogo Stadium

It’s the return to the Absa premiership this weekend as we take on Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr Molemela Stadium, Sunday afternoon at 15h30.

Both teams will be aiming for full points. We need to secure a win to climb back into the Top8 of the competition.

We drew to Celtic earlier on in the season, after Nyundu opened the scoring early on in the game. Mahachi equalised just before the break and thereafter the game was a fight to try and break a deadlock that saw a number of shots at goals from bith sides, but neither finding the back of the net.

Currently, we are separated by just a point on the log. Bloem have 19 points and are sitting 7th, while we are three positions below.

Its going to be an action packed game, and one that we are capable of coming home with full points from.

The game will be televised live on SuperSport4 with the match build up starting at 15h00.

A play-by-play feed will also be given over our Twitter and Facebook feeds. So avoid the disappointment of missing the action and follow us!

We would like to announce that we have secured the services of Danny Venter.

Danny joins us from Free State Stars where he has played since 2013, making 59 appearances for the side, scoring 7 goals.

Previously he played for Bloemfontein Celtic from 2010 to 2013 where he appeared 41 times for the club. He scored 3 goals in his time there with them.

We welcome Danny to the club and wish him well with his time with Lamontvile Golden Arrows.

This was definitely one of our better performances of the first round.We dominated the first half but could not turn that dominance into goals.

The players carried out our tactical approach with aplomb. The second half was a lot more open with both teams attacking at will. We pushed hard for a winner and at times almost got caught on the counter but for some very strong defending from Mzava and man of the match Mngwengwe.

A strong performance,clean sheet but again dropped two valuable points.

We have played to a goalless draw against Maritzburg United this afternoon at Princess Magogo Stadium.

It was an uneventful first half. Both sides were reserved in their play, opting to try and keep possession and play up into the last third with short and calculated passes.

We did see to enjoy more shots at goal, but were either just not on target or the shots were high over the bar. Our attacking plays were well orchestrated, and there was a clear intention shown, whether it was up the right with Dube and Ndwandwe or the left by Nonyane and Sibiya.

There was great support play in the middle, with Bilankulu showing some dominance along with Mahachi.

In the second half, The Team of Choice came back onto the park and tried to domainte the play. They retained the ball well and had a number of attacking plays at goal, but they could not break our defence.

We managed to find our composure, and played ourselves back into the game. But neither sides could find that break in the last third to score.

Another tough Derby game, and shared spoils for us as we head into a short festive break.

We return to the field on the 7th of January as we face Bloemfontein Celtic away at Dr.Molemela Stadium

Tomorrow afternoon we finish off the first half of the season with a KZN Derby game against Maritzburg United. The game will be played at Princess Magogo Stadium, and will kick-off at 15h30.

We will be looking to secure a win and 3 points from this encounter. We are currently 5points off the top of the log, and our last two results have set us back in our log position.

A win before the break would boost morale in the camp and we have our eyes firmly on that target.

We have been playing well, and have been unfortunate on not being able to convert well fought chances into goals. This has meant that we have had to settle for eight draws so far, 3 losses and only getting maximum points from 3 games.

Maritzburg are always a tough team in a Derby encounter, and they will bring it all on Sunday. A win for them could give them a good boost up the log.

We will be giving you, our fans, an up to the minute feed on the game should you not be able to be there. We do howver encourage you to come to the stadium and get behind the boys as we face our KZN rivals. And from previous derbies played before, this game will not be shy of goals. The game will be televised on SuperSport 10. Let’s get down to princess magogo and get behind the boys and let’s finish the year off on a high note

In a game that could have gone either way in the first half, we fought back well and secured the 3 points to remain on top of the log going into the festive break.

Both sides came onto the pitch showing intention to secure the win. In what was a head to head battle from the first minute, both ourselves and Chippa used our possession to its full advantage, playing into the last third and fighting to secure the opening goal.

It was the visitors however who struck first, securing a goal off the boot of Lonose in the 27th minute. This put us on the backfoot for a while and the youngsters handled a barrage of further attacks from the visitors. The first half was not short of shots on goal for us, but we were just unable to convert our chances.

We returned to the field after the break with determination In the early minutes of the half we put great pressure on the visitors goals. This paid off for us as we managed to pull back a goal and equalize with Sabelo scoring after the keeper fumbled a long range shot from N.Dube, and Sabelo Who was brave enough to put his head in the way of an oncoming keeper who tried to clear the ball, but Sabelo got there first to score.

Mathenjwa then gave us the lead after coming on as a sub. Another great team effort saw us get into the firing zone, we had a shot on goal which was saved. The rebound ball was loose and Mathenjwa managed to get to it and push it past the keeper for the lead.

The game however was not over then. Chippa fought hard to score again, and had a number of shots, but we were able to survive the attempts.

We were also unlucky not to score again when Conco was put into position on the right. He had a shot that hit the post, the rebound ball was then controlled by Mgwaba who tried a bicycle kick. It was a fantastic attempt but it hit the bar and bounced straight down.

A well fought game from the youngsters today in Umlazi to retain the top spot on the Diski log.

They return to the field in the new yer with a game on the 13th January againt Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr Miolemela Stadium at 12h00.

Tomorrow morning we play our last Diski fixture of the year, when we host Chippa United at King Zwelithini Stadium at 10h00.

This game was meant to take place last weekend, however, it had to be rescheduled because of transport issues cause by delays at the airports.

So far we have played well in our 8 encounters, and edged to the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Polokwane City in our last match played at home.

The top 3 places are in hot contention. Ourselves and Bloemfontein Celtic are level on points, but we now have a game in hand, and we occupy the top spot because of our 1 goal difference. Supersport United and Maritzburg United sit third, with just a point in it at position 3 and 4.

With our game in hand a win tomorrow would mean that we could stretch our lead by 3 points at the top of the table going into the Christmas break.

Chippa will be eager for a win, having played 8 games, they have managed to only secure 8 points so far after winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 4 of their outings. They are sitting 14th on the log and would appreciate points to improve on their standings.

This is a tough competition, but on the day anything can happen in these exciting and action packed encounters.

We encourage you to get to the stadium to catch the action. Entrance will be free and its a great way to start your weekend off. You will be able to catch some young talented players in action and the Diski platform showcases some fantastic talent.
The game will not be televised, but we will keep you updated on our social media platform

So disappointed for the players that they got no reward for the performance they gave. We are proud of the efforts they continue to give regardless of the result. They went pound for pound with the best team in the country and at times it seemed as if there was a big yellow bus in front of us. You don’t always get what you deserve in football and today was proof thereof.

We suffered a home defeat this afternoon to Sundowns in an exciting and well contested game.

It was a tough first half, and Masandwana came onto the field to try and set their domination from the first minute. They attacked early and put us on the back foot. This allowed them to secure an opening goal in the 6th minute.

Soumahoro managed to get a boot on a rebound ball and put it past Gumede to score.

We fought back well, and Mahachi had a shot from range in the 10th minute that hit the bar and then later was disallowed a goal as he was deemed offside.

Both sides fought to score again. We had a number of great movements but could just not break the defence.

We stood strong at the back, with Mngwengwe and Mzava putting it all on the line to ensure that movements from Tau and his team mates were closed down.

All in all, it was a fantastic fight from both sides and we were unlucky not to have equalized and gone ahead on goals as we created the chances.

We will prepare for the KZN Derby next Sunday we we meet Maritzburg United at Princess Magogo for our last game befor the Christmas break.

Tomorrow morning we play our last diski fixture of the year, when we take on Chippa united at Wolfson Stadium at 10h00.

So far we have played well in our 8 encounters, and edged to the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Polokwane City in our last match played at home.

The top 3 places are in hot contention. Ourselves and Bloemfontein Celtic are level on points, with us occupying top spot because of our 1 goal difference. Supersport United sits at third, with just 2 points in it.

We will all be wanting to secure a win and try maintain our top of the table spot going into the Christmas break.

Chippa will be eager for a win, having played 8 games, they have managed to only secure 8 points so far after winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 4 of their outings.

This is a tough competition, but on the day anything can happen in these exciting and action packed encounters.

Our game is not part of the Festival taking place and will not be televised. We will however keep you up-to-date with the progress of the game.

We return home to face Mamelodi Sundowns tomorrow at the Princess Magogo Stadium in our 14th game of the season. The game will kick off at 15h30.

Its been a tough week after our 2-1 loss to Free State Stars in Bethlehem, but the team have not had time to mope about the game as preparations started as soon as we arrived back for tomorrws encounter with Sundowns

With just two games left before the break, we need to collect points and we are determined to make tomorrows game count.

Sundowns have been catching up their fixtures, and have made no attempt to hide their intentions in the process. With just 10 games under their belt they have quickly climbed the log. On Tuesday they never held back as they beat Baroka FC 4-0.

They will come to secure a win, and Sunday should produce a great game to watch. Sundowns always enjoy away support and we urge you to get to the stadium in your Lamontville Golden Arrows colours to show support to the team.

Gates open at 12h30. Tickets are R40 for adults and just R10 for kids under 12 and are available only at the gates. So come to Kwa Mashu, bring a friend and lets get behind the team!

 

We definitely deserved something out of this game after a very strong second half showing. We struggled playing into a strong wind first half but used the conditions to our advantage in the second.

We gave ourselves an uphill task after conceding after only two minutes of the restart. We threw everything at Stars with the score at 2-1 and could have equalized had it not been for some tenacious defending by the home team.

Nonyane played a good 55 minutes after a lengthy lay off.Great to see him back giving a solid performance.

We have failed to secure a win in the ABSA Premiership tonight as we were defeated 2-1 by Free State Stars at Goble Park.

In a game that saw us dominate in the majority of the first half, with promising shots at goal from Siyabonga Dube in the 13th minute and a Shot from Magubane in the 37th off a flick-on from Mutizwa, we were just not able to convert the chances.

Ea Lla Koto made sure they had some promising opportunitis too, and Anas was unlucky to have a close range shot go wide off the mark.

This saw the teams go into the break goalless, but Free State Stars returned to the field with some early attack and it paid off for them.

Dlamini broke the deadlock as he converted a cross from Anas. He had a toe-poke inside the area and gave the hosts the lead.

A short while later Jantjie took a free-kick and found his mark, taking Free State Stars to a 2 goal lead.

We fought back, and we managed to pull one back as Magubane converted a pass from Nkombelo. But this was not enough and although we attacked the last third, Free State Stars dropped defensively and would just not let us break through.

We will prepare for our home game on Sunday against Mamelodi Sundowns, and encourage you to come to Princess Magogo to lift the spirits of the players.

Disappointed would be an understatement. Scoring two good team goals then conceding through a penalty and a deflected equalizer was a tough way to drop two valuable points.

We weren’t at our best for sure but neither were our opponents who did very little to trouble Gumede in goals.

More points dropped at home so we have to win our next match against Free State Stars at all cost.

We had chances to get a third or fourth goal but it wasn’t to be.

Another positive result on the road for the club. It’s never easy playing at Orlando but our players showed no fear and gave their all to make sure we returned with a point.

Gumede made three good saves to keep us in the game but we also had opportunities which Mabokwane did well to save. We maintained good tactical discipline throughout and made it difficult for our opponents to break us down.

We could have done much better with our counter and break attacks which lacked the killer final pass. Gumede and Cele were our standout performers on the night.

Supersport took the lead quite fortuitously when Bilankulu slipped because of the soft underfoot conditions. We had the first chance of the game though ,when Mutizwa chipped Williams only for the ball to narrowly go over the crossbar.

Conceding the second goal just before the break made our task all the more difficult. Chasing the game made us susceptible to conceding again and our opponent got their third , killing all hopes of any comeback.

Truth be told it was not a bad performance by the team but also not good enough to get any result from a very experienced Supersport team.
