A solid team effort saw us win 2-1 against Cape Town City at Princess Magogo Stadium in the Multichoice Diski Challenge.

The team dominated the play throughout the 90 minutes of play but were failing to find those final touches to put us in the lead in the first half. We had a number of well executed plays that put us into the opposition last third, however we could just not find the back of the net.

We closed down any play that Cape Town City came at us with and frustrated them on the field.

Going into the break there was no score on the board.

Returning to the field we maintained dominance but it was in the 60th minute against the run of play that City managed to get behind out defence and took a shot at goal from a tight angle. The ball deflected off the near post and into the goals to give them the lead.

We retaliated quickly and almost equalised a minute later, but some good work from their keeper Anderson saw the attack off.

Sabelo eventually found the back of the net in the 67th minute and then settled matters off a penalty awarded for a foul in the box against Ngcongo to secure the win against the log leaders.

The Diski team now break until the new year when they return to the field against Supersport United at TUT Stadium on the 12th of January.
