Mamelodi Sundowns lose to Platinum Stars

Posted: 18 April 2012 Time: 21:18

Platinum Stars produced one of the shock results of the season with a 2-1 victory over log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday night.

The win for Dikwena ended a 14-game unbeaten run for The Brazilians in all competitions and is a blow for their title hopes, while for Stars it keeps alive their very real ambitions of finishing in the top eight.

Teko Modise was on target for Sundowns, in between excellent goals from Patrick Malokase and Sibosiso Msomi for the visitors, who were well worth the three points on the night.

The victory also stretched Stars’ run in the League to just one defeat in eight matches; quite a turnaround from the first half of the campaign.

The home side were almost ahead inside six minutes, with the lively Lebogang Mokoena crashing in a shot that flashed just inches wide of Stars goalkeeper Siyabonga Mpontshane’s upright.

The visitors were the ones to strike first though, slightly against the run of play, as in-form Malokase beat the offside trap and produced a delightful chip to beat Calvin Marlin.

It was a fourth goal in as many games for the Orlando Pirates loanee, who is turning out to be the best piece of business done in the January transfer window.

The pressure from Sundowns was incessant though, and although Stars kept them at bay almost to the half-hour mark, they did finally find a way through – Modise scoring from close-range after a fine ball from Punch Masenamela.

But the visitors were back in front on 57 minutes when exciting prospect Msomi crashed the ball home from 30-yards for a fine individual effort that left Marlin flailing.

What followed was a siege on the Stars goal, but the visitors held firm with Man of the Match Tshepo Moloto one of the heroes on a fine night for the North West side.

Sundoms is like a guy that dates a girl for 3 years going to resturants, cinemas and everything else... While the guy never smacks that small kuku...

While Pirates is like that guy who meets the very same girl... Ending up smacking that small kuku and deleting the girls number on the spot...

Ayeye I love it when Black and White unite to form Pirates...

Eish, cruel but very true hahahahahaha!!!!!!

The result of this game is not a train smash as such. We lost three points however we still got 5 games to redeem ourselves.

Its getting tougher and tougher nevertheless we have to show the ability to run the whole race.

I plead to my YELLOW fellows to remain behind the the team throughtout the whole race because I believe the donkey work has already been done all our team needs is to finish it off in style.

To our boys, tough it out, be strong and resilient during times like this. I believe in you, take it one game at a time. Yellow!

The championship is painted YELLOW all the way!

Yellow I Was, Yellow I Am & Yellow I Will Remain! [through and through]

This is the beggining of the downward spiral from the usual CHOKERS. Anyway if one has to be honest, this has been the story of this team therefore no surprise at all with these results...they were expected.

The same 5 games are going to be a mountain to climb for you...knowing your team. You must never ever leave under the illusion that our fellow Sowetans leave under, i.e. having games remaining means you still have a chance...look at where they are now. You are dead finish and klaar!

We hav to take our frustration on them. Phela isdididi kumele sihlezi sivikile. At chiefs akuna ndoda khona, so angeke simoshe iskathi ngama-Nu izinto zomasweswane.

You cannot draw 6 games and stil believe your team will win a double.

Sundowns must ask the right questions, what happened to the 9 points gap.

we reminded them of their own sickness of Choking but they where in denial. Masandawana just face it, its gone, Pirates is more motivated than Sundowns, This is our only ticket to go to AFRICA to redeem ourself.
