A late goal in extra time from Velemseni Ndwandwe ensured a point away from home for us against Baroka FC.
In what was a very tight game from the first whistle, we battled it out until the dying minutes at Peter Mokaba Stadium, eventually getting a decision that favoured us and managing to capitalise on it.
The team once again played a well structured game tonight. Our midfielders did well to secure the ball and this allowed some very expressive play to happen up field as Parusnath, Conco, Mmodi and Gumede pushed into the firing line. Unfortunately, no matter what we did, Chipezeze did well to deny us finishing any play.
We needed to dig deep to pull together and deal with the loss of a player after Lunga received his second yellow and marching orders in the 66th minute. This made it more difficult for us to find an equaliser to Baroka’s 48th minute goal by Masiya.
The team showed some amazing character and never gave up. We were awarded a free kick in the last minute of extra time and it was Mutizwa, playing off the bench, that delivered a well weighter cross to the box where Ndwandwe connected to equal the scores and ensure a point from the game.
We will have a couple of weeks break now and return to the field on the 21st November as we take on Kaizer Chiefs at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
