Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns draw in League clash

Posted: 15 October 2011 Time: 19:59

Golden Arrows and Mamelodi Sundowns drew 1-1 in a League match on Saturday evening.

The Sundowns goal was scored by Elias Pelembe while Musa Bilankulu got the equalizer. Arrows had Dillon Sheppard sent off in the 94th minute.

Most of the play in the first half was concentrated in the midfield with Dillon Sheppard causing problems for defenders on the left side, while Mabhuti Khenyeza did the same for Sundowns at the other end.

The first real chance of the match fell for the home team in the 27th minute when Siyabonga Nkosi delivered a dangerous corner into the box which was flicked on by Thanduyise Khuboni; Robyn Johannes did well to rescue the ball at the far post but somehow Musa Bilankulu failed to get a touch on the ball with the goalkeeper out of the equation.

Sundowns finished the half as the stronger side with Pelembe proving to be a thorn on the right side of the field and in the 41st minute he delivered a dangerous cross behind the Arrows defence for Katlego Mphela but the star striker failed to make a proper connection with the ball.

The first goal of the match arrived in the 54th minute and it was worth the wait as Elias Pelembe showed his class to control the ball on the edge of the box before placing it the top corner beyond a diving Helton Da Rocha.

The celebrations didn’t last for long as the score were back level three minutes later when Musa Bilankulu rose above defenders to head home from a Siyabonga Nkosi corner.

Both sides could’ve stolen the lead in the closing stages with substitute Thamsanqa Gabuza getting a few chances for the home side, while another substitute, Teko Modise, missed a good chance to take maximum points for the visitors in the 84th minute.

Dillon Sheppard was sent off in the 95th minute for a second bookable offence just two minutes after receiving his first yellow card.

How can we expect a goalkeeper who left a small team like Platinum Stars, because of lack of game time to be the number one goalkeeper in a team that has title ambitions. The fact that he is in the national team is testimony to the crisis that we are currently in as a country in this department.

The only decent goalkeepers we have in this country are Khune, Josephs and maybe the former Wits Keeper.

De coach knows what he's doing. Our back line and golie r not dat bad, we are building the space ship that will take over from russians and americans.
I tell all Dawanes out de we won't defend gud dis cumin months as we are still mastering the attack. Dose who knows will remember that Downs don't play to defend.
We had players like Magulego and dan dance(not de best defenders) but we were winning, it has neva been our culture to defend.

We will score goals and win, draw or loose matches but we will remain the stylish, inspiring peace and harmony on/off the field.
We re the only SA teams who has neva allow the intimidation of african conditions to deny us to promote peace among the african continent thru football.

I tell u SA we don't need that nobel peace coz we are dishing it in de field of play.

m agree wth u on dt note dawana! We re nt a defending team, even we had de likes of OJ Mabizela, Manzini, Oscar, Benson recently bt we were so shakey. And ds thing of more ball plryrz is costng us, is just untrue story. I mean, we had Suprise, Sapula, Chabangu, JD, Prispiano & Mazibuko in de past bt we won thngs.

Downs is not and should not be a defending team I agree, but we need goalkeeper who will inspire confidence in the attacking team. The infield players should know that they have a goalkeeper who will make that odd save should he be required to. Now here is a keeper who caanot even defend corners.

The succesful and and attcking sundowns teams of old were strong in this department, think of Mark Anderson, John Tlale, Brian Baloyi/calvin Marlin. By the way i dont know of any team that went on to win the league in the world without a strong golkeeper.

Well I get yo point masandawane and bolo luvin citizens. Rambo have a weakness, and am sure our goalkeepers coach is aware of it. Remember recently he pulled some excellent stops against the birds.
We can win de ligi with the current squad. Our main weakness are the empty seats. We have world class players but we are not showing them.

downs draw 1-1, unnecesary goals conceded which will come 2 haunt them wen bucs retain their title, lol

dawana drew, bucs drew...the most sucesful teams in history of the psl are going through a slump. lets all stick wth our teams, we know the refs are plotting our down fall, decisions always favor other teams wen playing against bucs or downs

refs are only in downs side wen they are squized by bucs, lol. its time colonel n mr motsetserepa lodge a complain against the refs. its thru their hardwork that they are rich. no need 2 be against their superbrand(bucs) n supersunflower(downs)

there refs want 2 give chimps the lig on a silver platter they shuld be stoped. but the positive thing is that chimps is above us on the log this means the log is still open 4 contention. this is a team that wnt win the lig, even if they win all their remaining games

i miss the days wen things were tough 4 downs n bucs, like they are now

at bucs we remember the days of pap that must be cooked for the refs as soon as possible, operation lets burn qubule via pap is to be launched

at downs i remember the days of the mad mask man. the man who enters the play field anytime he want wen things dont go their way. the man who wanted 2 slap refs every time decision is wrong even if it favours downs, the man who knows the meaning of fair play

downs n bucs lets fight against refs bias decisions against our brands, the superbrand n the supersunflower...mambush must play again, charles is no longer there...this time he will slap the refs,lol on national television lolest

operation find the mad musk man starts not today but now

the sooner we find the mask man the beter. we bucs sapotas will cook the pap give it to the mask man who will enter the field at full speed n lauch the attack on qubule...we must burn his eyes maybe he will start seeing things like normal poeple

if the mask man is missing n cant be find...we bucs fans can provide the attire n downs must provide the mask man but i would prefer the mask man 2 b sweyts, brazilito, mtho4downs, fire or wonder(mfana wa style)

talented guys who like superman n will apreciate the privilege of being offerd the opotunity 2 b like their hero...

bucs forever more...until sandoms provide us wth a mask man
