Nedbank Cup Vs Milano United
We welcomed the relief from our league fixtures in our qualifying round of the Nedbank Cup 2015 vs Milano at Chatsworth.
This was a game that we wanted to use to bounce back from our poor form of late and also to give some fringe players the opportunity to start and impress the coaching team. A good performance from them and the possibility of putting their names in the hat for our upcoming game vs Highlands Park this coming Saturday.
It was a rather nervous start from some of the debutants and we once again fell behind early through a corner kick.
We had to react quickly and make substitutions to change the game. Introducing Hotto and Kok made the difference as we settled down to our normal passing game and started to create more chances to score. A well taken free kick from Brandon Parusnath gave us the equaliser and put us back into the game.
The 2nd half was an entertaining affair and definitely kept us on the edge of our seats as fans and coaches alike. Both teams threatened with good attacking play but we were fortunate enough to pile on the pressure and force a penalty in our favour. Zukile Mkhize stepped up and duly converted the spot kick to give us the lead and eventually the result.
Now we have 2 home league games left until the Christmas break and we trust today’s result will restore the confidence in our players as well as the team for the remaining 2 weeks.
Hope to see you all at Chatsworth on Saturday for our game vs Highlands Park and your continuous support for the boys.
