We have secured another 3 points in our Diski campaign after a 3-2 win over Bloemfontein Celtic at Dr.Molemela stadium this morning.
The game had an explosive start for us and we dominated the play in the opening minutes. The early pressure paid off for us and saw Sabelo open the scoring in the 12th minute to give us an early lead on the hosts.
We allowed them to play back into the game though as we dropped back defensively, allowing them more time on the ball to create scoring opportunities. We were fortunate at first that they were not able to finish and managed to put another 2 goals on the board through some great play from Conco and Mgwaba.
Conco scored a fantastic volley shot after an amazing assist from Mgwaba. Mgwaba then had an opportunity to find the back of the net after super sub Jappie made a solid cross to the unmarked man in front of the goals and he made no mistake and scored!
Celtic found their feet though and managed to pull 2 goals back on us. Their first goal came in the 51st minute as Modise scored right after Naicker made a telling save. Mabaso then got their second as we were found wanting at the back in the 62nd minute of play.
The game went down to the wire, with skipper Sibisi putting his body on the line in the last minute of extra time to deny the home side the equaliser.
The team will return to Durban where they will play a home game next Sunday, the 21st, against Platinum Stars at 10h00.
