We suffered a home defeat this afternoon to Sundowns in an exciting and well contested game.
It was a tough first half, and Masandwana came onto the field to try and set their domination from the first minute. They attacked early and put us on the back foot. This allowed them to secure an opening goal in the 6th minute.
Soumahoro managed to get a boot on a rebound ball and put it past Gumede to score.
We fought back well, and Mahachi had a shot from range in the 10th minute that hit the bar and then later was disallowed a goal as he was deemed offside.
Both sides fought to score again. We had a number of great movements but could just not break the defence.
We stood strong at the back, with Mngwengwe and Mzava putting it all on the line to ensure that movements from Tau and his team mates were closed down.
All in all, it was a fantastic fight from both sides and we were unlucky not to have equalized and gone ahead on goals as we created the chances.
We will prepare for the KZN Derby next Sunday we we meet Maritzburg United at Princess Magogo for our last game befor the Christmas break.
