Mamelodi Sundowns lose to SuperSport United

Posted: 12 May 2012 Time: 16:49

Sibusiso Zuma’s 79th-minute goal gave SuperSport United victory and put his former team Mamelodi Sundowns out of the League title race.

Another former Sundowns man, Franklin Cale, created the goal for Zuma with an excellent run and low cross, but was then sent off and will now miss the Nedbank Cup Final against Sundowns.

Sundowns started well in this intense Tshwane derby. In the first minute, Teko Modise tried to chip goalkeeper Ronwen Williams who was just off his line, but the 19-year-old made the save.

Soon afterwards, Nyasha Mushekwi sent a header over the bar as The Brazilians began asking some questions of their city rivals.

Then in the 27th minute Matsatsantsa came close as Sameehg Doutie’s free-kick was palmed into safety by Wayne Sandilands.

And in the 32nd minute it was Williams’ turn to make a save as he palmed away Punch Masenamela’s powerful shot.

Katelgo Mphela was introduced after the hour-mark and his first contribution was an attempted volley in the 76th minute, but he was way off target and summed up the day for Sundowns. Johan Neeskens’ team had more of the ball possession, but were woeful in the final third of the field.

In the 79th minute, Zuma rounded off Cale’s run and cross by getting in front of his marker to slot home from close range.

Sundowns came close in the 82nd minute when Esrom Nyandoro’s powerful drive rebounded off the upright and in the 87th minute Mushekwi put his header wide of the far post.

Then Cale was red carded for a silly tug on Mokoena in the dying minutes of the match before Surprise Moriri put a shot wide of goal with less than a minute of optional time to go.

Although I agree wit most wat u said.
Danials is a cow as u may said, but he is a most committed downs player at present. Same goes to Rambo. Dose 2 re our solders dis season. Fighters, warriors. Players who hate to loose, mbuyane is a cow. But he has more fighting spirit than our star striker. We may pay them gud salaries, but laboshlama don't deserve lenyuku.

the coach should stay and finish all 3 czen. Vele vele we hav went more than 4 years without a trophy. Let's give neeskens a chance and let's de likes of mphela, nyandoro baphumule ngokuthula sumwhere.

Mamponyana is 1 player who ......... Angifuni ukusho niks

Hade Madawane, Sweyts,The Game,Brazilito,Mthowedana.

It was too much and realistic expectation for Neskeens first season.

Only Leal could do it because the foundation and the motivation Kroll laid was very strong.

When Neeskens took over, there was no foundation. Keep the man, he knows waht he is doing.

My advise: there is too many stars who are not adding value but affect the team negatively. The issue of captain is also a concern, Teko is a good player but he is not a good leader. Give captaincy to Daniels or Punch.

I hear u bra, but i can't take this heartbreak anymore maybe i'm taking out my anger at daniels, maybe he's not
That bad after all. But what happened to that sundowns we know, the sundowns of ball players from defenders to strickers? Why r we buying players who r suited to our style? Its all about money & fame now, we have no player willing to die for that yellow jersey.

Yes dawane, no player abazimisele lapha. We used to hav players like dan dance, jose magulego, manzini. Benson mhlongo. Dose were solders. They were willing to die for yellow.

We re all disappointed masandawane. No need to point fingers, but it obvious dis Mamponya boy is not learning a thing. Uyanhlanhlatheka nje. From the first game of de year, most of our star players never cum to de party. Sidliwe sonke masandawane, kodwa akulahlwa mbeleko ngakufelwa.

My plead to downs family is to giv neeskens another year. Please masandawane.
