This away match was played after a hard fought 1:0 home win against Baroka where Sfiso Mlungwana played his first match and kept a clean sheet. He had yet another good day in the office against a very forceful Polokwane City who were fighting for their lives to survive relegation. We had a good first half and created a few good chances. We took the lead early in the game, 8th minute after a well orchestrated move we generated from training and Mutizwa finished with a header to make it 0:1. We had good control of the match against a difficult opponent. We had another chance in the 44th minute when Mutizwa put Lamola through and with only the keeper to beat, he shot wide. The first half ended 0:1 in our favor.
We resumed the second with more clarity on how to deal with the opponent midfield shape. We started the second half well and kept probing but not as clear. Lamola was put through again by Mutizwa, with only the keeper to beat, he blasted the ball against the keeper and we failed to make it 0:2. In no time after that miss the opponent pulled one twenty minutes into the second half. Sfiso pulled a great save from a Chauke shot, we failed to clear the lines and Anas finished the rebound to make it 1:1. The match became a battle for a winner but it wasn’t to be. The last chance to win the match fell for us when we got a central free kick and Mutizwa went over the wall, beat the keeper but hit the cross bar. The match ended 1:1.
Our next encounter is at home against Kaizer Chiefs
