Dikwena win battle of the Stars

Platinum Stars beat Free State Stars 4-0

Posted: 27 October 2012 Time: 5:32 pm

Platinum Stars trounced Free State Stars 4-0 in a Premiership match in Rustenburg, thanks to two goals by the inspirational Thuso Phala.

Phala scored twice and had a perfectly good goal wrongly disallowed, but Dikwena were also supported by a fantastic goalkeeping display by Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Mogakolodu Ngele scored the third goal and Tintswalo Tshabalala put the final nail in the coffin.

The match was played in the scorching heat, but after a thunderstorm late in the game the event was almost abandoned.

The home side took the lead just after the half-hour mark when Phala brought the ball onto his left foot and shot at goal, but he was helped by a wicked deflection that sent goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene the wrong way.

Then Phala had the ball in the back of the net, having beaten the offside trap and gone around Mweene, but the assistant referee called him offside, which was the incorrect decision. Phala was also booked for shooting at goal after the whistle had gone.

However, five minutes into the second half Phala got his second goal. Dikwena broke out with a superb counter-attack and after a one-two with Ngele, he got into a great position and struck with a first time left-footed shot.

The third goal, scored by Ngele, came after a great piece of work by ex-Bafana Bafana man Vuyo Mere on the right flank. His square pass found Ngele, who beat Mweene with a first time shot that went in off the upright.

The match was then stopped for a few minutes when a thunderstorm darkened the skies in Rustenburg. But the weather cleared up and the match could go on.

Soon after the restart, Ngele supplied the pass for Dikwena’s fourth goal, which was scored by Tintswalo Tshabalala, his first of the season.

Don't let your imagination get the best of you Mosixty,we are not going to disrespect any team in the PSL that doesn't mean we are scared.
Pirates is in a league of it's own so we're more scared of ourselves than any other team.
We are not going to predict anything,Amazulu is not a walk-over or push-overs.
We will give the best that we can to ensure we get a positive result,that's all I expect ot the team(both the players and the Bhakaniya family).
I'll be at the stadium tomorrow,I expect the to see the rest of the familt there.
Bhakaniys show up to the stadium,there is food and alcohol on sale at Orlando asishosdi nga-niks.
Plus you get to see your beloved team,asiyeni bafowethu!
