We are advancing to the quarter finals of the Nedbank Cup after an action packed game against Witbank Spurs this afternoon.
It was a game of two halfs. We dominated the first half, getting onto the score board with a goal from Lerato Lamola. The goal came from a short corner, executed well by Parusnath. The ball landed at Lamola’s feet and he turned, took his shot and found the back of the net.
Witbank Spurs showed determination to get back into the game and had passages of play that saw them get into the final third. They were however not able to capitalise.
We created opportunities to extend the lead. Sibisi narrowly missed out on a chance from a free kick and we created other chances that just lacked on finishing.
The second half saw Witbank Spurs come back onto the field showing renewed determination. They dominated the play by playing long balls up field to get behind the defence.
We had a number of close calls, and managed to stand strong in our defence until the 85th minute when Mrawu received a ball in the box, split the defence and played a shot between Gumede’s leg to pull one back.
This fired them up and they attacked into the final third with determination for the last minutes of play.
We would like to thank our supporters who traveled up for the game. Your voices did not go unheard from the stands.
