The game in general delivered all that a Derby should and was entertaining from the first whistle to the last. We will regroup and refocus on the DSTv Premiership this week as we have a game on Friday night against Stellenbosch FC. We take on Amazulu FC in the last-32 of the Nedbank Cup tomorrow afternoon at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium. Kick off will be at 17h00. It will be an interesting encounter and the second between the sides for the season. We are expecting a different side to the one we met at Johnsson Kings Park Stadium.
Without you, the #StendeNation army backing us, we would not have been able to achieve what we have. Here is to hoping that we will see you all, at the stadium in the upcoming season. We dropped important points at FNB Stadium tonight against Kaizer Chiefs in a game that we could have closed off in the first half. We looked composed at the beginning of the game, working the ball well and creating space and opportunities up front. This paid off in the 21st minute for us as Michael Gumede opened the scoring. Chiefs responded just after the half hour mark as Manyama scored the first of his hat-trick off a well delivered low cross from Katsande.
The first half of play saw us dominating ball possession, and well executed plays on both flanks of the field between Magawana and Dube on the right and Cele and Mmodi on the left allowed us to play up into our opponents half, but we were unable to create clear scoring opportunities as the hosts defended well. We missed an opportunity to take the lead on the half hour mark as Mutizwa headed over the bar off a cross from Dube. Sekhukhune responded as Sibanyoni attacked, missing his opportunity to put his side in the lead. Coming off the break, Coach Seema made three changes, with Sibiya, Ndwandwe and Gumede coming on. All of the players made an immediate impact with Gumede breaking the deadlock in the 52nd minute off a great assist from Sibisi.

R40 adults, R15 kids U12 The team gave a fairly good performance and played decent football after a day long trip from Durban to Venda. The match was played at night, under rain, typical of Thohoyandou, it was still hot but much better than what it would have been during the day. We had a good first half with lots of clear cut chances to take the lead in the match but we failed. The opponent kept pushing and piling pressure but we showed lots of maturity in defending. As a result the opponent did not create too many opportunities. Of the chances we had, we could immediately remember the Venter ball that hit the upright, Parusnath had his ball parried by the keeper, Sibiya’s shot going over the bar, Lamola had an easy tap in to make and many more which occurred in the second half.
We simply lacked composure in front of Goals. Our goal came early in the second half and we deservedly took the lead. We were fairly in control of the match but lacked the right connection between winning the ball, the stabilizing or forward pass to create a scoring opportunity. Something we seriously need to work on. Our good work was undone by lapse of concentration when we conceded a corner with 4 minutes to go before end of the match.
Our wingers were starting to get tired and we introduced a new pairing in Jooste and Lamola. We placed Sibeko wide on the left and Lamola played alongside Mutizwa. We were more threatening and it wasn’t long, we broke from a break and scored in the 82nd minute. The score was 1:0 and all we needed do was to manage the match. The team showed lots of maturity and managed the lead very well. We almost got a second but we squandered the chance.

We always play better when we are trailing from behind. There seems to be a heightened level of concentration when we chasing the match. A very tough match away to an opponent, with a good squad but who’s been struggling to get results. This match was played after we lost to MSFC in the semifinals of the Telkom Cup. The level of our moral was at our lowest but we quickly needed to restore it. We had a fairly balanced match with far and few chances. We struggled to find our playing rhythm.
