Polokwane has always been a difficult place to go and get a result. We are therefore very pleased to have managed to get all three points. This was a solid team performance and credit must go to the players for a job well done. There was lots of pressure during the game as we had gone four matches without picking up a result of any kind. Added to that pressure, was the fact that we had not scored in our previous four games, so it was pleasing to have scored two goals.
The first half was a very tight affair and to make matters worse we conceded very early and had to chase the game from the 7th minute. The players kept their composure and continued to make in-roads into the oppositions defensive 3rd. We scored our equalizer through Shitolo after some good build-up play and a great cross from the right hand side by S Dube.
After making some tactical adjustments to our defense, we looked a lot more organised defensively in the second half. Once again, we created numerous goal scoring chances but never the less continued to have hope that the winner would come. Ultimately we got our reward when Ramagalela came off the bench to score with his very first touch of the ball.
Bilankulu played him in with a great ball from defense, and Rama G showed great composure when facing the keeper on-on-one. A job well done by everybody.
I would like to take this opportunity to also congratulate Coach Vilakazi for their victory which has taken them to the top of the Diski log. We also wish them luck for the final game against Free State Stars.
