Competition: Telkom Cup

Venue: Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium
Conceding two goals in the first half saw us blow our chances on a Telkom Cup final as we managed to find the net once in response after full time.
The first half got underway under blistering pace as the Brazilians put pressure on us from the first whistle. They pushed up into the final third, testing the teams defence and keeping us on the back foot.
This saw them secure their first goal off a free kick almost at the middle circle. They played it to the box and Kekana was allowed enough space to get a clear header on target. Sibanda attempted a save but was unable to get in front of it.
The visitors second goal, scored by Sirino, was once again allowed in after Sibanda was not well placed as a barrage of shots were aimed on target. Sirino, well placed on the near side of the box, was left with more than enough space to convert his attempt.
Returning after the break, we looked a lot more composed and created a number of decent chances. Phiri put one over the bar, Mtshali did well in some inspiring plays and Mutizwa even had a fair share of chances. But our last touches were just not with us today.
Our only goal was scored by Sibiya, off a neat play on from Mutizwa in the 83rd minute. This instilled some encouragement and the boys looked to force extra time but were just not able to eqaulise.
We thank our supporters for the encouragement in the cup competition and we will continue to push in the League for a decent finish to the season.
