Another solid performance saw us secure a 3-2 win over a determined Platinum Stars in Kwamashu this afternoon
For a team that is already relegated to the NFD in the next season, they showed the determination and fight that we are used to seeing from the side.
We got the game off on a good foot and used our possession well. A quick throw in from the far side by Ndwandwe helped catch the visitors off guard, and this allowed Mutizwa to open the scoring for us, tapping the ball past Mzimela
This was a positive play for us, and encouraged some great attacking play, creating spaces and getting the ball behind the defence as we looked to extend the lead going onto the break. Venter scored our second goal in the 30th minute and we held the lead going into the break.
On returning to the field, Dikwena came back with some fight in them. They kept pressure on us for a good 15 minutes. Keeping us held back in defence and not allowing us much ball to play forward on.
They pullled their first goal back in the 60th minute after showing some steady attacking play. Mkhabela got the goal, but it was a concerted effort from all on the field to get there.
They fought a hard last 45. They kept attacking us at all angles. But We managed to score again. Ndwandwe played Mutizwa into position, allowing him to score his brace.
Ndwandwe had a solid game today. Looking to feed the ball to anyone on attack. He was unlucky not to be able to score himself in the second half.
An extra time goal from Sithole saw the visitors narrow the lead but it was not enough for them in the end.
Another good performance from the side, and a great foundation to go on to play Maritzburg United on the 12th of May at Harry Gwala Stadium
