Leopards get vital win

Posted: 30 April 2008 Time: 17:49

Black Leopards beat Thanda Royal Zulu FC 3-2 at Thohoyandou Stadium to give themselves hope of survival in the Absa Premiership.

The Leopards goals were scored by a brace from Robert Ng'ambi and a goal from Myron Shongwe. The Thanda goals were scored by Felix Obada and Tshepo Mashishi.

Leopards got off to a flying start when Ng'ambi scored a brace within the first 12 minutes of the game.

The Malawian scored with a close range shot in the sixth minute from a Mulondo Sikhwivhilu cross and then scored with a header from Fisher Kondowe free-kick in the 12th to double the hosts lead.

Ng'ambi was replaced due to an injury after a clash with Mashishi just a few minutes later. Thabiso Hlalele coming on in his place.

Felix Obada pulled a goal back for Thanda in the 29th minute when he scored with a low shot after picking up Mashishi's cross.

Shongwe restored Leopards’ two-goal cushion in the 38th minute, scoring with a close range after getting a pass from David Makgale.

In the 47th minute Mashishi fouled Shongwe in the area and Leopards were awarded a penalty. Sikhwivhilu took the penalty kick and was denied from scoring when his shot hit the post.

In the 90th minute Mashishi pulled a goal back for Thanda when he got his boot to the ball after a goalmouth scramble to make the score 3-2.

Lidoda Duvha remain bottom of the table on 22 points, but are level on points with Jomo Cosmos and are just two adrift of Thanda with three games remaining.

Teams that represent geographical areas in a major league offer something special in particular to their communities.
Thoyandou needs you Leopards, it would have been criminal if you could get relagated just like that.
Two more wins and thats it.
I am with you in prayers and am confident you gonna make it.
Well done Lidoda Dhuva.
