Mamelodi Sundowns beat SuperSport United

Posted: 17 November 2012 Time: 22:13

Mamelodi Sundowns defied the pressure to book their spot in the 2012 Telkom Knockout Final after a sole strike by Eleazar Rodgers against SuperSport United at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night.

Both teams came into the game as the two sleeping giants in the Premiership and they were in need of a place in the final to help boost their confidence.

SuperSport created all the early pressure, but it was a great counter-attacking move by Anthony Laffor which saw him assist in breaking the deadlock on the quarter mark.

Laffor supplied the ball into the box, which met Eleazar Rodgers, who controlled and turned on the ball before driving it into the back of the net, 1-0.

The scoreline nearly doubled ten minutes later, when Hlompho Kekana forced Ronwen Williams to make an unforeseen save after he headed the ball back to the keeper only for it to nearly go in at the far post.

The half saw both sides pushing forward, but neither could really create anything significant in front of goal.

Gavin Hunt opted to make a change when he put on Nathan Paulse and Franklin Cale in place of Mor Diouf and Moffat Mdluli at the start of the second half.

Paulse kept Sandilands on his toes when he fired in a low shot towards goal, but the keeper pulled off a diving save, in the 65th minute, to pull the ball away from Sibusiso Zuma’s feet.

Cale tried to turn in a free-kick, with just 15 minutes to go, but after doing well to work the ball through the wall, it was deflected out by Paulse.

The presence of Cale in the SuperSport line-up spurred the squad on as they tried to find a late equalizer, but they were denied it after their penalty appeal was waved away in the 86th minute.

Guess who's back!!

Now that I have rejuvenated myself, all those that have been laughing at my beloved downs shall eat their previous words. TKO final here we come with sweyts back in the mix. I am what downs have been lacking and no that I have returned from USA, I am ready to continue blogging better than I used 2. I have learned some new words and approaches in my time in the USA. This time I am going to spit fire and blow solar flair out of my #### to all the chips and pie-rats supporters.

Here We go!!

@CHAMP and Anonymous

U guys are 4getting that in terms of the league, Pirates and Chiefs come from humble beginnings. It took Pie-rats 10 years to win cups and leagues and as for chips, only God knows when last did that team call themselves SA champs. Whereas on the other hand, the Pretoria teams made winning leagues a habit. Now that Downs is having one poor season and Chips and Pie-rats are at the top, u guys know how to open you mouths wider than wits university. Continue underestimating downs, u will swallow your heads I'm telling you. The corner is being turned and after winning TKO we shal rule once again. This time for goode........
