Last minute drama decided the game against Maritzburg United tonight as we ended up losing the 3 points on offer at Harry Gwala Stadium.

While dominating the greater deal of the game and displaying some impressive linking play, we failed to convert the opportunities that were created and sealing the game when we should have,

Opening the scoring in the 38th minute off a quick counter play from N.Gumede, it was Venter who put the ball in the back of the net and putting the home side on the back foot going into the break.

Maritzburg returned to the field, showing determination to pull something back with a change in positional play. They made well thought of substitutions to keep the pressure on the defence and eventually managed to score their equaliser in the 88th minute.

This seemed to rally them together, and they kept pressure on us in the 5 minutes of extra time. This paid off for them when Jappie crossed to the near post, the ball was played to the middle again and Sibisi looked to clear as Moseamedi was coming up on attack. Unfortunately his attempted clearance played into the top right corner of the goal an sealed our fate for the night.

We have a number of days to regroup before we face Baroka FC at home on the 8th January.
