A brace from Thando Khwela in the first half, and a goal from super sub Nkosikhona Dube in the second half saw us secure a 3-0 win over Black Leopards in the MDC Challenge this morning.
We dominated the play over the full 90 minutes.We did not allowing the home side many opportunities to get into any position where they looked dangerous and kept them on the back foot for the better part of the game.
After missing some good chances in the opening minutes of the game to score, we eventually opened the scoring off a penalty in the 30th minute.
Being under pressure for the majority of the half caused some frustration to the home side. A lack in their discipline and concentration in the box saw them concede the penalty after a late tackle in the box.
Khwela took the spot kick and found the mark, beating the keeper.
Shortly after he narrowly missed an opportunity to extend the lead as he fired one over the bar, but was eventually awarded his brace shortly before the half time break.
Leopards had passages of play that looked as if they were going to fight back, but never got into a promising position. They had a chance to pull one back early in the second half, but messed the chance up after putting the attempt wide.
A substitution from the bench saw Dube entering play. He made an immediate impact and scored minutes after coming onto the field.
Another positive result from the side this morning.
The boys will be in action again next weekend as they face Sundowns at the King Mangosuthu Regional Stadium. Kick off will be at 10am.
