Missed chances from both sides in the first half of the game today saw us play to a goalless draw against Bidvest Wits at the FNB Stadium this afternoon.
The game started off at quite a good pace, with Wits hunting for their first win after returning to the league games. They played the ball to us, and put us on the back foot while looking for space to create scoring chances.
We looked more composed than in our last outing and managed to keep a sound structure both defensively and offensively. This made Wits have to work that little bit harder, and allowed us to defend well against the determined Students.
They delivered some good balls to the box, and were denied off a header attempt from Macuphu that just went over Mlungwana gloves but hit the crossbar.
We were also denied by the woodwork as Gumede took a shot at target in the first half. This would be the only decent opportunity we had at scoring in the first 45.
The second half delivered more missed opportunities for both sides. And this would evntually play out till full time.
Not a full haul of points, but an important one for us in our quest for a Top 8 spot this season.
