Mamelodi Sundowns lose to SuperSport United

Posted: 12 May 2012 Time: 16:49

Sibusiso Zuma’s 79th-minute goal gave SuperSport United victory and put his former team Mamelodi Sundowns out of the League title race.

Another former Sundowns man, Franklin Cale, created the goal for Zuma with an excellent run and low cross, but was then sent off and will now miss the Nedbank Cup Final against Sundowns.

Sundowns started well in this intense Tshwane derby. In the first minute, Teko Modise tried to chip goalkeeper Ronwen Williams who was just off his line, but the 19-year-old made the save.

Soon afterwards, Nyasha Mushekwi sent a header over the bar as The Brazilians began asking some questions of their city rivals.

Then in the 27th minute Matsatsantsa came close as Sameehg Doutie’s free-kick was palmed into safety by Wayne Sandilands.

And in the 32nd minute it was Williams’ turn to make a save as he palmed away Punch Masenamela’s powerful shot.

Katelgo Mphela was introduced after the hour-mark and his first contribution was an attempted volley in the 76th minute, but he was way off target and summed up the day for Sundowns. Johan Neeskens’ team had more of the ball possession, but were woeful in the final third of the field.

In the 79th minute, Zuma rounded off Cale’s run and cross by getting in front of his marker to slot home from close range.

Sundowns came close in the 82nd minute when Esrom Nyandoro’s powerful drive rebounded off the upright and in the 87th minute Mushekwi put his header wide of the far post.

Then Cale was red carded for a silly tug on Mokoena in the dying minutes of the match before Surprise Moriri put a shot wide of goal with less than a minute of optional time to go.

You can keep your goal advantage, it does not matter any more. Good thing is that you still have to play this team in a cup final and a better stage to get your revenge.

I feel sorry for sundowns. The coach messed with the game against chiefs. I was laways going to be difficult from then on. Good try to the title though. Keep up the momentum. You might win the nedbank cup. Good luck.

ur one of a kind jita...de yellow fellow deserve something 2 smile about...dey mas jus ensure de pumps in de final run out of water so dat supaspot may not prepare their TAELA,lol

neeskens is a gud coach, he is lyk a commerce learner who takes a 70%pass rate in science. the road luk yellow with de kind of display they dish and de youngstas dat he introduced...and again no coach ever won a ligue in his first season

sundowns have pretty gud memories for dis season unlike de last one...powerlines history, shoe-shine n piano dat was lost for generations, instil discipline in playas, lack of management interferance to mention jus a few

de only player dat neeskens mas get rid of for gud is katlego mphela...he have dis ill behaviour each time sundownz is on cos to win de ligue, last season n dis season...phela dis mphela cant even get himself a contract ovasea n yet he acts lyk he is sundowns. mushekwi tried his level best but it was not to be

HADE YELLOW

YELLOW SHALL BE DE COLUR OF NEDBANK TROPHY

You're right about the Downs Killer Godfada.......I think the Ghostly family can do with his services against Libolo next season, we will throw in R3m on top with Jali following his heart, before he self destructs.

May be our coach was given no mandate other than to build a new team. It seems results do not matter to him. He likes saying 'we will try to win'. He will never say 'we must win' or 'we will win. How does he motivate players with such language?

Phillemon......yehlisa umoya Dawana, I'm furious with him as well but his positives outweigh the negatives, let's stick with him and allow him room to learn from his errors and correct them.

If he looses the Nedbank cup, then I will condone a klap or two.....mh. but he should'nt be fired for our players' lack of ambition, no, no! Ziyanya ley'bhari no-Xulu naye all of a sudden sekayatatazel.

For an instance, Teko failed to repay the faith Neeskens has shown in him.......lamasimba wakhe wokusaba uku katshwa ayas'coster!
Whenever there's a challenge, you're assured that Modise will pull out as if it's all about him......masimbakhe naye maan! I hope lesas'shasha sim roefe yonke lemali nalama tatoo wombhedo. Nx! Damn it!

Thanx Coach with your Teko Modise.This boy is cursed.Supersport and Pirates were chokers while he was playing for them and now is Sundowns.Clemens Westerhof was said that you cannot rely on this Teko to win the championship,by then I said he was jelous but now I beleive him.
