Venue: Suagr Ray Xulu Stadium
A late goal in extra time secured the game for us this afternoon against Chippa United.
It was a game of two halves that saw us dominating play in the first 45 minutes and putting the visitors under pressure from impress attacking plays up the flanks. Both Sibiya and Lunga put pressure on the Chippa defence a number of times, with S.Dube doing the same from the opposite side of the field.
The atacking play paid off in the 31st minute with Sibiya striking the ball well, keeping it low. It curved in towards the goal, catching Tignyemb off guard, struck the far post and bounced into the goals.
A well fought for goal to take the team into the break with a lead.
Coming out of the change rooms, it seemed to be Chippa who were fighting for the domaination on the field. They had a number of attacking plays that were well defended by Mathiane and Sibisi at the back.
We conceded a penalty after a hand ball in the box, which Komane converted to equalise the scores with just 10 minutes of regulation play left.
A solid final fight back from us left Mutizwa looking deflated as he missed an easy shot on goal, but instead of accepting defeat, he fought back and managed to guide the ball into the net to clinch a win for the side just 3 minutes into extra time.
A good performance for the side today. They showed fight and character in all aspects of their game.
The win will also give us confidence ahead of our game in just 4 days time against Orlando Pirates in Johannesburg.
