We secured a win this afternoon in a five goal extravaganza against Baroka FC at Princess Magogo Stadium.
The first half of play was a strong half for us as we managed to dominate both position and possession on the field. The boys did well to channel the ball up both wings, looking for and creating space that allowed us to take shots on target.
Our first goal came from Magubane who went on attack with M.Gumede. Gumede took a shot that was blocked by the visitors keeper but he never held onto it. Magubane, following up headed in for the lead. Just fifteen minutes later Mmodi extended the lead with a great finish from a passage of solid team play.
This saw us go into the break with a good lead, but the second half nearly unravelled for us as we let Sithole and then Farmer equalise for the visitors.
While we did well to push up on attack, we have Baroka too much space to come back at us off set pieces. We fell way too far back and this allowed them to push up into our final third with long balls, not giving ourselves space to clear and then conceding.
We were then awarded a penalty in the 83rd minute after substitute Conco was brought down in the box. Sibisi took the penalty and played into the bottom right corner, beating a diving Masuluke.
A well deserved win for the team and a positive to build of before we head off to take on Chippa United at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Saturday 4th December.
