Ajax Cape Town come back to punish Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 18 September 2011 Time: 16:58

Ajax Cape Town scored three goals in the second half to steal a 3-2 win away to Mamelodi Sundowns.

Lebohang Mokoena opened the scoring for Sundowns in the 30th minute, and the game went into half-time with the home side 1-0 up.

But with Maartin Stekelenburg's advice to his team to "have fun" and play the ball, Ajax came back through Terror Fanteni and Nhlanhla Vilakazi.

Punch Masenamela got his first goal for Sundowns on 83 minutes to level the scores, but Khama Billiat got the winner in injury time.

The Brazilians would have returned to the top of the log had they claimed all three points. Instead they are placed third on 10 points, two adrift of leaders Kaizer Chiefs. Ajax are fourth, also on 10 points.

Sundowns dominated the first half and opened the scoring on 30 minutes when Mokoena curled home a left-footed shot through a crowd of defenders. The Sundowns attacker capitalised on a rebound after Sean Roberts had saved from a snap shot by Katlego Mphela.

Franklin Cale almost doubled the hosts’ lead six minutes later with a dipping volley that crashed back into play off the crossbar.

The second half was much more evenly matched and Ajax started their comeback on 62 minutes when Fanteni controlled a long ball out of defence, pushed into space and unleashed a fierce shot that Wayne Sandilands was helpless to stop.

Just over 10 minutes later the Cape side went in front for the first time. Lebogang Manyama unleashed a long range shot that was saved by Sandilands – however, the ball rolled free in the penalty area and Vilakazi had an easy task to fire the ball home and make it 2-1.

With eight minutes to play, Sundowns set up the game for a dramatic finale by making it 2-2. Masenamela picked up the ball on the edge of the Ajax penalty area and fired a left-footed drive into the back of the net. Roberts got a hand on the shot, but it had too much power to be pushed aside.

The game seemed to be there for Sundowns to win in the dying minutes, but instead it was the Urban Warriors who provided the late heroics.

In the first minute of injury time Ajax sliced open the Brazilians’ defence and Billiat – who had been completely anonymous throughout the regulation 90 – popped up to slide home the winning goal at 3-2.

I'm not impressed with the fitness of our team. I'm not a fan of Mphahlele as he the worst right back Sundowns ever. He can't mark, i think Doc Mammpuru is far more better than this cow. He is costing us big tym.

There's a new freway in Tshwane.....The Ga-Mphahlele Autobahn! What a waste!

Sandilands is still crap I maintain, some fat Home Affairs official must get an envelope fast it's now a catastrophe phela, Onyango is needed.

Having said that, Sundowns remains it's own worst enemy, hade maDawana, we deserve better.

I'm also starting to doubt if our players have the mental strength needed to maintain a 4-3-3 system for the whole 90mins.
But that's where the coach intervenes, and I'm afraid so far he's been caught napping since his late subs' always fail to inspire when introduced, Neeskens must up his game and learn fast or else the sky will fall on him.

'Just kiddin bafethu, let's exercise patience and give him the space he needs to experiment undisturbed for now, simbeke ibhampari. lol

Sky's the limit....namanje!
