Playing teams that are not in direct competition with us for the league title are always more difficult to play as you need to motivate your players much more.
A very hot Pretoria welcomed us and we knew that we needed to apply our normal possession game to reserve energy and be patient to expose Garankuwa’s defense.
Once again the deadlock was broken by Andile Fikizolo with a well taken goal to give the lead into halftime.
The 2nd half was a totally different story as Garankuwa started to put more pressure on our defense and we also allowed them too much space and time on the ball.
Defending has been our strength this season and proved it by staying compact and dealing with all the attacks on our goal.
Max Mbaeva made some great saves to keep us in the game and that gave us more confidence going the other way. We finally scored the second and winning goal through Mabhuti Khenyeza a Well deserved victory for the club and extending not only our winning run but also our lead at the top of the log.
Now onto the Nedbank Cup tie with Natal United next week Sunday at Chatsworth and a well deserved break from the league for 2 weeks.
