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.

The Nedbank is a must though, we have to play in the Confed atleast.

Phela it would be total injustice for the rest of Africa not to witness this exciting brand of diski, at our best, not even a single Kuku can dispute that we dish the best, akulahlwa mbeleko ngempela mfethu.

Yellow namanje!

Let me start by saying; YELLOW I REMAIN. The results of this weekend just demonstrated that we're not good enough to be champions yet.

The sense of drive, determination and courage is missing in our team, yet our club policy rewards mediocrity by having monthly ceremonies were players are given incentives for drawing and losing matches. Until our club president Mr. Patrice Motsepe revisits this stinking policy, we will continue to huff and puff the whole season without anything to show for it.

Yellow I Was, Yellow I Am & Yellow I Will Remain!

I love sundowns but I can't support a team that doesn't have a mission, vision, n a goal. But I'm happy amatuks r coming will c who is getting more supporters sundowns, supersport or amatuks. We r sick n tired about big spending sundowns. I'm sure there is no taem that is scared of sundowns.

To Sunflops:
reduce the number of players in your squad. leave alone pirates rejects. build your own development as a nucleus. About Nedbank Cup, I do not know, Supersports is on fire for your standards. Money does not kick the ball.
