A late penalty secured an important away win for us at Royal Bafokeng Stadiun tonight against Platinum Stars.
This was a dramatic ending to a game that was destined to go down to the wire, and a determined Platinum Stars threw everything at us to try and secure a home win.
We fought well, and some great keeping by Gumede made sure that numerous attempts at goal were denied by the hosts. Bongi Ntuli was the main attacking force for the hosts and was well supported by Mere when it came to attacking our goals.
We battled at times to get through the defence of Dikwena, who used a strategy to sit deep in defence which tightened any gaps. We had a number of shots at goal, but were just not able to find the right angles to make anything from them.
In one of our last attacking plays, Mzava fed Mutizwa in the box. He was fouled by De Jongh and we were subsequently awarded a penalty. Mahachi made no mistake and we managed to secure the 3 points from the encounter.
We will now travel to Johannesburg where we face Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday night at 8pm.
