The Diski team were held to a goalless draw this morning by Baroka FC at Princess Magogo Stadium. Although we dominated possession, it was some solid goalkeeping from Baroka that denied us the points.
After coming onto the field and looking to set the tempo of the game, Baroka were shortly on the back foot as the Diski boys answered their attacking play with calculated counter attacks. For periods of play, we held the visitors in their last third as we spread the ball and looked for opportunities to create spaces to score.
This game plan served us well and saw us create a healthy number of scoring chances. Baroka’s keeper, Molapo, was determined to keep a clean sheet though and played out of his boots to achieve his goal.
He saw goal attempts from Ndelu, Mathenjwa and N.Dube in the first half.
We maintained a good work rate throughout the game and gave the visitors little chance to counter, but had to survive two well executed offensive plays from the Limpopo outfit. Cebekhulu looked confident and calm as he managed to control the ball from their attacking plays and only once faltered, but the shot was just off target an found the side netting.
The result is not indicative of the play from the Diski team, however they will have to settle for just the one point for their efforts.
They will prepare this week for their upcoming Derby game against Amazulu on the 17th which is to be played at Vosloorus Stadium at 10h00.
