A very difficult encounter we faced with the opponent at the bottom of the log and fighting tooth and nail to get out of the bottom of the log. A crucial match for our confidence due to our bad run recently.
There was a very small margin of points between the teams. They played a very physical game, competing for every ball both in the air and on the ground. They played ore direct and we competed very well. The first half was tightly contested and there were very few chances created by both teams except the high number of corners we conceded and the opponent threatened to score by delivering their balls far post.
We were kept in the game by Mlungwana, playing his first PSL match, when he kept out a close range header from a corner kick. The first half ended 0:0. We resumed the second half with good energy and took off where we left off.
We kept fighting their direct play knowing that soon the match will change face. We got a free kick in the opponent half ad from tat free kick, we scored via Shitolo to make it 1:0. We created two to three chances from counter attack situations and we failed to take advantage.
We needed more composure on our counter attacks so that we could terminate them. The victory puts us at 24 points after 17 matches and position 7 on the log. There’s still a lot of work to be done but so far so good.
