Kick-off: 12h00

Another thrilling installment of the Multichoice Diski Challenge took place today as we faced Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium.

The teams took to the field and went head to head in a battle that could have lead to either team opening the scoring in the first ten minutes. Poor finishing from both sides denied them this advantage.

We played a well executed game plan, and managed to get behind the opponents defence, but had a number of shots that just lacked the right touch to convert into a goal.

Our attacking game plan frustrated the opponents a bit, forcing a foul in the 24th minute. Tshanini set up the free kick, struck the ball well and cleared the wall. The ball then beat Sandilands and gave us the lead for the rest of the half.

Returning to the field, it did not take long for us to go on the attack again. Pirates were ready for this and countered our plays well. Looking to get into the gaps and take advantage. This allowed them to play into our last third a number of times.

Tshanini made a hard tackle on one movement, and being in the box, was penalised for the infringement. Mabaso placed the ball and converted it for the home side to equalise.

We managed to see off a number of attacks on goal by Pirates after that. They had us on the back foot for a decent amount of time, but perseverance eventually paid off in the last 10 minutes as we countered well and found the winning goal off the boot of Dube.

A positive day for the side as they return home to prepare for next weeks game against Polokwane City.
