Today’s encounter was going to be difficult as both teams won their last 2 games and confidence were high on both sides.
We needed to start the game the same way we did vs Highlands as far as tempo and passing accuracy was concerned.
The 1st half was definitely a rather frustrating one for the coaching staff as we dominated with possession and also with creating the most goal scoring opportunities but could not find the back of the net.
We eventually found the 1st goal through Tebogo Masaole, who continues his good goal scoring form.
We started the 2nd half a bit tentative and Leopards piled on the pressure as they felt they could still come back to win the game.
With good counter attacking play, we created a few more chances to wrap up the game but the 2nd goal came late in the game through Masaole again.
The performance for me today without a doubt justified our position on the log and also the fighting spirit my players have shown over the last 16 games.
It was the best way to start our 2nd round of fixtures and also to end off with a victory to give everyone involved with the club a nice Christmas break.
To all our supporters, once again a big thank you for your support and encouraging motivation towards my players.
Have a great festive season and travel safe on the roads as we hope to see you all back in the new year.
