Bidvest Wits v Free State Stars

Posted: 15 March 2014 Time: 19:56

Free State Stars beat Bidvest Wits 3-1 in a League match at Bidvest Stadium thanks to a hattrick by Richard Henyekane.

Robin Ngalande pulled a goal back for Wits late in the game. Wits also had Tebogo Moerane red-carded for a second bookable offence towards the end of the match.

Wits controlled large portions of the game, but some poor defending combined with some clinical finishing from Richard Henyekane handed Stars the win.

The home side started positively, but some poor finishing from Calvin Kadi in particular saw Wits struggling to breach a stubborn Free State defence.

Instead, the opening goal came at the other end of the park, very much against the run of play, after some great individual skill from Henyekane saw him find some space and produce an expert finish, 1-0.

Stars defended well and went into the half-time break leading 1-0.

Wits controlled the game at the start of the second half as they looked to hit back, but again some poor finishing really cost them.

Stars suffered a bit of set-back on the hour mark when goalkeeper Tshepo Motsoeneng had to leave the field injured and was replaced by Ayanda Mtshali.

Ten minutes later, however, and Stars were smiling again when Henyekane made the most of a swift counter-attack to double his side’s lead, 2-0.

Wits’ night got even worse when Tebogo Moerane was sent form the field after receiving his second yellow card in the 88th minute.

The result was put beyond doubt a minute later when Henyekane grabbed his third goal of the night after a goalmouth scramble, 3-0.

Wits did manage a consolation goal in the dying seconds of the match courtesy of Robin Ngalande, but it was too little too late, 3-1.

Richard Henykane is on song, teaching Wits a free lesson. Wits talked too much during the week claiming that they didn't need favors from rats hence deep down knew that they really wanted rats to kill the zebras. I wanted rats to beat zebras but it didn't happened.

Pitso is a proven corrupt coach. I believed he is paid to ignore real talent. Sandalands two clean sheets. I am sure Pitso is not happy with these clean sheets
