We concluded the first half of the season with a 2-0 win over Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium tonight.
We looked confident from the first whistle tonight and used our ball possession wisely as we created opportunities to score from. What was encouraging was that the team looked like a well drilled unit once again with each player on the field contributing to an outstanding 90 minutes of play.
While Maritzburg had a chance to score in the 12th minute shot stopper Mlungwana parried the attempt away denying the home side the opener. This set the precedent for him for the game as he did well to keep a clean sheet.
As we settled into the game, we had some well constructed advances on target. This saw Fikizolo with a chance just before the 20 minute mark which he put inches wide of target.
It was a cross from the Man of the Match, Ndlovu, that saw us score first as he crossed for Moon who went up for the header and found the mark in the 22nd minute.
Moon then doubled the lead just seconds before the break, heading in his brace to give us a well deserved lead going into the break.
The second half of play saw Maritzburg fighting to get back into the game. Once again, looking consolidated as a team, every effort was put in to defend strongly and deny the home side the ability to score.
A positive result from the team and coaching staff as we head into the international break.
