PSL match report: Platinum Stars draw with Bidvest Wits

Posted: 4 August 2013 Time: 17:55

New coaches Allan Freese and Gavin Hunt got off to a slow start as Platinum Stars and Bidvest Wits played out the first goalless draw of 2013/14.

The Clever Boys ended the game with 10 men, as Denver Mukamba received a straight red in his first start for the club, after hitting out at Lindokuhle Mbatha.

The start of the game was suspended by an hour following the arrest of the designated match officials, who reportedly drove to the stadium in a stolen car.

Referee Victor Gomes had to step in as a result, a mere 17 hours after officiating in the game between SuperSport United and Free State Stars last night.

The game produced few scoring opportunities with both sides looking rusty.

Mogakolodi Ngele forced new Bidvest Wits keeper Moeneeb Josephs into a good save in the 11th minute when he hit a fierce shot from range.

Then Papy Faty was denied the opener by Dikwena veteran Benson Mhlongo, who cleared off the line in the 18th minute.

Robert Ng’ambi found the back of the net three minutes before the break, but it was chalked off for offside.

The best chance of the second half fell to Soloman Mathe but he was unable to stick the ball in the back of the net from close range, when it looked easier to score.

Wits were reduced to 10 men six minutes from time following Mukamba’s moment of madness, and as a result pulled everyone back. Despite their late dominance, Dikwena failed to break them down.

Why is the ''Bidvest'' in the Wits shirt located in the chest instead of the stomach like other sponsors?

Gomes gave a red card in each of two games he officiated this weekend. This is so bad taking into concederation the yellow cards(8) he dished during super sport and free state game plus that offside goal for chiefs in black label cup. This guy is a disgrace in our soccer
