A consecutive KZN derby in 5 days posed a major hurdle in our quest to secure that automatic promotion.
Thanda was always going to be a tough opponent as they needed to bounce back from their defeat against Warriors and ensure they continue their push for a play off place.
Underestimating opposition had never been part of our vocabulary but once again our slow start to the game allowed Thanda to dominate possession in the first half and take the lead through a corner.
Another well taken free kick to equalise from Mabhuti Khenyeza brought us back into the game but a lapse of concentration gifted them the 2nd goal through a inswinging corner and miscalculation from our goalkeeper.
Our fighting spirit and the will to win has been the foundation of this team and we again showed that we possessed that believe to come back every time we faced with difficult situations. Our 2nd goal through Nkanyiso Cele came at the right time as it changed my team talk at halftime.
The next goal in a game like this is always important and we fortunately applied enough pressure to get the lead and 3rd goal through Zukile Mkhize.
The last 15 minutes was a tense affair as Thanda really pushed us all the way and we defended for our lives and the victory we desperately needed.
This victory showed we have been working towards our goal with the discipline needed and that we do not need favors from anyone but continue to work as a team.
We will see all our supporters at Chatsworth on Sunday for our last home vs Cape Town All Stars.
