Competition: DSTv Prem
Date: Friday 14 October 2022
Venue: Princess Magogo Stadium
Another second half fight back from the boys saw us rescue a point tonight against Stellenbosch FC at Princess Magogo Stadium.
The first 45 minutes of play saw us unsettled and not displaying the brand of soccer that we normally dish out. We allowed the visitors to take advantage of their possession and they pushed up and put our goal under pressure at every opportunity given to them.
In the 23rd minute, a well delivered corner from Basadien found Adams in the box who headed in to give the visitors the lead, a position that they held comfortably until the break.
The second 45 saw us get into more of a rhythm of play and the the boys started looking like the unit that have been playing in the last couple of games. While Moon looked dangerous at times tonight he was just not able to penetrate the defense and a tactical move to replace him with Khumalo paid off as he did well to link up with the likes of Sibiya, Mmodi, Ndwandwe and Lunga and create chances to equalise, having a number of shots on target himself.
It was Stephens between the sticks that kept the lead for Stellies though as he made save after save to deny us the opportunity to score.
Zuke had the breakthrough and scored the equaliser in the last minute of additional time to deny the visitors full points and secure the draw and a point from the evenings outing. But once again it was the determination from the entire side that was rewarded with the goal.
We need to build on this now as we have just 3 days until we face Orlando Pirates on Tuesday night at our home stadium.
