A goal in the 59th minute from Sepana Letsoalo equalised the game this afternoon at Dr Molemela Stadium as we faced Bloemfontein Celtic in the first game of the DSTv Premiership.
We had a solid start to the game, and went on the attack from the first whistle, securing an attacking corner and letting the host team know we were there for a result. The pressure we applied, along with enterprising play from Shitolo, Parusnath, Makhubela and debutante Mmodi saw us getting to the strike zone, applying pressure on the Celtic defence.
This paid off for us in the 16th minute as Makhubela opened the scoring for the game after Shitolo won the ball in midfield, fed Mmodi who then layed the ball off to Makhubela who finished off the move by finding th back of the net.
Coming back from the break, Bloem Celtic upped their game plan and put us on the back foot a number of times. We managed to keep our planned formation and remained disciplined in our defence. It was an error at the back that allowed the attacking Celtic players through that we lost the lead.
A good fight for dominance took place in the last 15 minutes of the game with both sides trying hard to score but failing.
A point off the first game of the season and a lot to build on as we return home for our first home game of the season on Wednesday night against SuperSport United.
