GOLDEN ARROWS 1
0 PLATINUM STARS
Date: Sunday , 28 February 2016
Venue: Chatsworth Stadium
Lamontville Golden Arrows have beaten Platinum Stars with an 85th minute goal from Mwape Musonda at Chatsworth Stadium this afternoon. Allowing them to again break into the top 8 of the log with a vital 3 point.
Both teams battled to finish this afternoon, and each had a number of opportunities to put the ball in the back of the net but failed to finish off in the manner in which was expected from them. Mbaeva was a thorn in the side of the visiting team throughout the game, and Cavin Johnson’s charges should have taken the lead after they had a number of scoring chances, 2 of which saw them in a 2-on-1 situation on Mbaeva.
Mbaeva once again played out of his boots and put everything on the line to deny the opponents from putting the ball in the back of the net.
Golden Arrows played well, doing well to create situations that saw them putting pressure on Platinum Stars defence however the finishing also let them down. Both sides just could not make full use of the ball they enjoyed.
The breakthrough came for Golden Arrows in the 85th minute when Musonda, who came on as a sub for Mahachi, scored with a first touch shot after Mhango played the ball back to him off an error from Zongo.
A deserved win for the team.
The next fixture is on 5 March when Golden Arrows take on Milford FC in the first Nedbank Cup fixture.
We look forward to seeing you at King Zwelithini to watch the game.
