We have played to a goalless draw against Maritzburg United this afternoon at Princess Magogo Stadium.
It was an uneventful first half. Both sides were reserved in their play, opting to try and keep possession and play up into the last third with short and calculated passes.
We did see to enjoy more shots at goal, but were either just not on target or the shots were high over the bar. Our attacking plays were well orchestrated, and there was a clear intention shown, whether it was up the right with Dube and Ndwandwe or the left by Nonyane and Sibiya.
There was great support play in the middle, with Bilankulu showing some dominance along with Mahachi.
In the second half, The Team of Choice came back onto the park and tried to domainte the play. They retained the ball well and had a number of attacking plays at goal, but they could not break our defence.
We managed to find our composure, and played ourselves back into the game. But neither sides could find that break in the last third to score.
Another tough Derby game, and shared spoils for us as we head into a short festive break.
We return to the field on the 7th of January as we face Bloemfontein Celtic away at Dr.Molemela Stadium
