Mamelodi Sundowns vs Golden Arrows Nedbank Cup

Posted: 22 March 2014 Time: 22:20

Mamelodi Sundowns came from a goal down to beat Golden Arrows 4-1 in a last 16 round Nedbank Cup tie at King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium on Saturday evening.

Philani Shange opened the scoring for the hosts, but goals from Dove Wome, Lebohang Mokoena, Anthony Laffor and Percy Tau booked Sundowns’ place in the final eight.

Sundowns looked to dominate from the onset, but it was the home side who took the lead through Shange in the 13th minute.

Siyanda Zwane made a driving run down the right flank before playing the ball into the area; his cut-back evaded a couple of Downs players but not Shange, who produced a powerful shot to send the home fans into delirium.

Sundowns continued to press forward and finally found their reward six minutes before the break. Laffor played in Wome, whose low drive from an acute angle got the better of Nkosingiphile Gumede.

The old-guard of Teko Modise, Alje Schut and Surprise Moriri combined well 10 minutes into the second stanza with the latter’s effort smashing off the post, before Mokoena grabbed the lead for the Brazilians in the 58th minute.

‘Cheeseboy’ found himself in a pocket of space just outside the area before smashing the ball past Gumede.

Four minutes later and it was 3-1. Laffor left two defenders in his wake before finishing off superbly with the outside of his boot.

Tau capped off a superb comeback in the 90th minute. Teko Modise hit the inside of the post before recovering the rebound and setting up Tau, who produced an exquisite first time finish to net his first goal of his Sundowns career. 

Golden Arrows: Gumede; Ntombayithethi, Zwane, Nene, Tom, Mngwengwe, Khuboni (Musonda 68’), Katongo, Moholo (Mbewe 61’), Shange (Thwala 74’), Hotto

Mamelodi Sundowns: Sandilands; Mphahlele, Schut, Nthethe, Mashaba, Laffor, Kekana, Modise, Moriri (Masenamela 79’), Wome (Nyandoro 65’), Mokoena (Tau 74’)

Pitso was just being silly. Billiat is just another slightly above average player. Some of our coaches do not know what to say during post match interviews. That was an  insult to Sundowns players

Well played clowns...There is nothing special you did though... even the strugling Gorillas would have won this one...

You must just pray that you don't meet The Phefeni Glamour Boys in the next round...because that would be the end of the road for you clowns....
