A determined fight back in the second half from the boys tonight save us share the spoils against Cape Town City at Princess Magogo Stadium.
Both teams looked subdued in the first 15 minutes of play and while each side did well to penetrate the final third, there were no attempts on target that looked threatening from either side. The Citizens then changed their tactic and began pressing a little more with their possession. This paid off for them in the 27th minute as Kajally won the ball of Lunga, played across the face of the goal and struck well, beating Gumede and opening the scoring.
The boys never rested, and fought back but were unable to equalise before the break.
The second half of play was a different affair. We played at the pace and tempo we are known for and took the game to the visitors, looking to penetrate the defence at any given opportunity. Khumalo, who substituted Moon at the break, was instrumental in a number of plays and did well along with Mmodi, Sibiya and Ndwandwe in the attempt to penetrate the defense.
It was Lunga however that ended up scoring the equaliser. We secured a corner and Sibiya curled the ball in from the near side. Keet, between the sticks failed to hold onto the ball and Lunga rifled his shot in for the equaliser.
In the last 5 minutes of play we bombarded The Citizens goals but were unable to find a second and the win against the Cape Town outfit.
Another point in the season campaign, and well deserved for the fight back and determination showed by the team.
