We have secured a valuable 3 points tonight with a well fought for away win against Cape Town City.
In a first half that saw the home side dominating both on the field and possesion. Cape town City made some threatening plays, with Lakay taking on both Nkombelo and Ndwandwe on either side of the park and breaking through to our last 3rd.
Mathiane and the rest of our defence looked solid though out and saw to it that the opportunities could not be capitalised on. A solid fight from the team saw us go into the break without conceding,
We managed to clinch the lead just 4 minutes into the second half, when Lamola was put into a perfect position by Venter. He took the opportunity running onto the ball and beat Stephens to find the back of the net.
Some calm and calculated play between Bilankulu, Venter and Lamola created a couple more opportunities, but he failed to finish off and put the game to bed.
We had to fight defensively to secure the win. Cape Town City refused to hold off and came at us from all angles. Our defenders played out of their socks tonight and ensured the win at Cape Town Stadium.
There is no rest for the side though as we return home and prepare to take on Free State Stars at home on Saturday afternoon at Princess Magogo Stadium. Kick off at 3pm.
