Three goals sealed a convincing win in our DSTv Premiership game this afternoon against TS Galaxy at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
The team showed their intention from the first minute of play, putting pressure on the visitors as soon as we had possession of the ball. The starting 11 had a clear game plan and executed it well, setting up Michael Gumede for the opening goal in the 7th minute of play.
We doubled the lead in the 32nd minute of play as Pule Mmodi had a brilliant shot at goal, finding his mark and receiving a deserved reward for his work on the field.
TS Galaxy did not look too dangerous in the first stanza and were lucky not to have more goals scored against them at the break as we attacked relentlessly until the half time whistle.
Coming back in the second stanza, we carried on play and our game plan from the first half. TS Galaxy found themselves on the back foot more often than not, and the crisp passing and continual attacking play from us saw Makhubela with a brilliant header to give us the 3rd in the 61st minute.
The visitors put up a decent fight in the last 30 minutes, and had a number of opportunities where they could have scored. Goal stopper Mlungwana make a number of amazing saves to keep a clean sheet for the day and deny the visitors attempts.
It was a brilliant outing from the squad today and a positive result as we look to maintain our 3rd position on the log.
We have a couple of weeks break now until we take on Kaizer Chiefs at FNB Stadium on June 2.
