Absa Premiership match report Free State Stars vs Highlands Park

Posted: 5 March 2017 Time: 15:19

Highlands Park struck at the death as they snatched three vital Absa Premiership points with a 1-0 win over Free State Stars at Goble Park on Sunday.

Charlton Mashumba looked to work something for Highlands in the opening 120 seconds but failed to find the target with his shot, before Surprise Moriri saw his effort blocked by Bokang Thlone.

Brandon Theron also fired wide of the mark as the sides eventually went down the tunnel still level pegging following an uninspiring opening 45 minutes.

Highlands continued asking most of the questions after the break but this time Mashumba shot wildly off target, with wayward finishing the theme of the afternoon.

However, the Lions of the North were not to be denied and got their goal, Mothobi Mvala heading home from Ryan Rae’s long-throw.
