Downs, SuperSport draw borefest

Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United draw

Posted: 26 September 2012 Time: 08:21 pm

Mamelodi Sundowns and SuperSport United shared the spoils in a 0-0 draw at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday evening.

In the most boring game so far this season, Asatuye Nyondo wasted a golden chance in the 18th minute when Mabhuti Khenyeza flicked on a pass but, with only the keeper to beat, he sent the ball well over the bar from six yards out. 


Nyasha Mushekwi had a better chance for Sundowns in the 29th minute when he beat the offside trap and was one-on-one with Ronwen Williams, but his first touch let him down, allowing the keeper to gather.

A minute later the Zimbabwean striker nearly made up for the error, but his header from a corner rattled against the crossbar.

The Brazilians had another chance to take the lead when in the 41st minute Esrom Nyandoro released a rocket from 20 yards out, but Williams held on.

SuperSport came closest after the break, with Wayne Sandilands needing to be at his best to keep out Bevan Fransman’s flicked header.

The home side should have had the winner in the 84th minute when substitute Eleazar Rodgers had only Williams to beat, but the striker’s attempted lob was comfortably saved.

Two minutes later Edward Manqele again failed to net when Tebogo Langermann sent in a pin-point cross; Williams again saving well to ensure a share of the spoils.

What a boring game.....the Sundowns team is not serious about winning....these players are just enjoying Motsepe's money.....there is no passion here whatsoever..they are not in it to win it,...unlike Chiefs and Pirates players where winning is everthing....

what an empty stadium for a derby.....that must have less than 2000 people in the stadium.....what a waste of resources....

What a bore. This thing of DSTV and SABC televising one game while ther r other games taking place is not on. Maybe other games wher more entertaining. Only Chiefs and Black leopards r the ones who makes sure they score in each game they play and consistently entertains their supporters. That's a FACT

Apparently we (the mighty bucaneers) are the only team that will displace the chimpanzees from the top of the table come december. They know that, they are scared of that, they have headache, they pray, they run, but they can't hide.
UP THE BUCS, marching on to conquering Africa while causing havoc in our domestic lig.

I bet the Sundowns website will be the last to report about this game as ussual.Motsepe needs to beef up that webside with new staff and a new webmaster.
