Kermit Erasmus nets the winner against Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 22 January 2011 Time: 22:23

SuperSport United beat Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night to claim the three points and the Tshwane Derby bragging rights.

SuperSport started well when Anthony Laffor hit a powerful shot from outside the box in the second minute, but was denied by the crossbar with Wayne Sandilands well-beaten.

Sundowns won a free kick in the 11th minute and Katlego Mphela blasted it against Rowen Fernandez. It was game on at this stage.

The reigning PSL champions continued to dominate, though and in the 33rd minute missed a great chance to draw first blood. Kermit Erasmus was picked with a pass on the right and he hit a low cross, which Sandilands got down to push away but the ball fell to Letladi Madubanya, whose shot crashed against the upright.

The score was 0-0 at the interval, but it was clear Matsatsantsa were very much the better side.

Back for the second half and Erasmus shrugged off the attention of Siyanda Xulu in the 57th minute and the nippy striker laid on the pass for Laffor, who was wide on the right, but the Liberian’s attempt was saved by Sandilands, who at this stage was standing between SuperSport and victory.

Two minutes later Erasmus sent in a cross from the right and Mario Booysen flicked it on with a header and Sandilands again pushed it away, but this time it fell on Morgan Gould’s path, but the Matsatsantsa skipper failed to capitaliuse when his left footed shot was too weak and came off a Sundowns player.

Antonio Lopez Habas was restless on the touchline and decided to take off Siyabonga Ngubane and brought in Papi Zothwane in the 64th minute, but nonetheless SuperSport still looked the more likely to score.

Madubanya missed a great chance in the 65th minute when one-on-one with Sandilands he shot straight at the keeper.

However, SuperSport had the last laugh. Laffor hit the post after some good work by Madubanya in the box and the ball fell kindly to Erasmus who hit it into an open net in the 84th minute to steal it at the death for Gavin Hunt.

Habas must do himself a favour & resign! He keeps experimenting with this below average Ngubane. He did against Chiefs & he does it against ZCC fc. I now believe Wonder as he never believed in this clown. HAS A COACH WITH AN INTERPRETER EVER WON THE LEAGUE?

This is hurting, but we have just begin the middle of the log. We are just halfway and I believe we will have to work hard to get back to the top spot. There is still more chance to open up the gap again. Masandawana let us not give up.

The sky is the limit.

it wasn't gonna last 4ever. u cant win all games on luck. i was chastised by many when we were winning unconvincingly. i said we dont have a coach,we dont need booth, the rotation system is failing, xulu is being destroyed, super subs dont win da league, mpela's heart is not at sundowns and the coach does not have plan b or a plan for tha matter. i was told to get off habas's case. patterson should have been replaced, ngubane is a future star but da derby needs experience like zothwane. maybe tshilo must brake booth's knee, leg and ankle so dat we can have a steady defence. everytime we concede a goal he is running towards the goal like a headlees chicken. in celtics game he was in the net before da goal was scored. i feel sorry for sandilands. i rest my case.
