This was a difficult game under trying conditions but we still managed to put in a good first half performance. Our plan to overload the central midfield area worked well as we dominated the game in the opening stanza.

After missing a few chances we finally got the breakthrough after some great build up play when Nonyane found Ntanga with a hard,low cross at the near post.

In the 2nd half we sat too deep allowing City to keep us under constant pressure but our defensive shape was solid and we managed to keep them at bay. We had to deal with an aerial bombardment in the final 15-20 mins where Mzava and Mngwengwe in particular were outstanding,winning those vital duels.

As expected we knew we would have opportunities to counter and got our second late in the game when Jooste used his pace to good effect and clinically finishing from the edge of the box.

Not the prettiest 2nd half but a hard fought 3 points in the end.
