Venue: Princess Magogo Stadium
It was a game of two halves today that saw us hold on for the win and 3 points this afternoon at Princess Magogo Stadium.
We did well in the first half, taking the ball up on attack and making the visitors defense work hard to try and slow the game down. The continual press up to the box did well to put the pressure on them and in the process forcing the errors. We received a free kick in the 18th minute and Nxadi opened the scoring with a low level header off a free kick from Ndududzo Sibiya.
We kept pressure on the visitors and just 5 minutes later we extended the lead as Sibiya converted a penalty kick after Mutizwa was pushed in the box.
With the team running on a positive streak of play, we once gain found tha back of the net as Mutizwa drew Chaine out of position, then crossed the ball to an unmarked Mmodi who scored the third.
Coming back onto the pitch for the second 45, the run of play changed for us. We found ourselves on the back foot and playing a defensive game. The visitors sensed the upper hand they had and pulled back 2 quick goals in the 62nd and 67th minute but failed to break the defense once again.
Overall we achieved a positive result for the day but will need to work on maintaining an attacking mode of play.
We will now use the week to prepare for our game against Mamelodi Sundowns at TUKS Stadium next Saturday.
