Maritzburg United beat Mamelodi Sundowns 2-1

Posted: 2 September 2012 Time: 17:20

Delron Buckley continued his good form, bagging a second-half brace to help his side to a vital 2-1 win away at Mamelodi Sundowns on Sunday afternoon.

Nyasha Mushekwi got one back for the Brazilians on 90 minutes, but it was too little too late.

Maritzburg had a chance to grab the fastest goal of the season when straight from the kick-off a right-footed shot by Cuthbert Malajila from 35 metres out missed to the left.

The Brazilians had an early chance in the fifth minute, but Edward Manqele did not connect properly with a right-footed shot from the right side of the box, and his effort was saved by Shu-Aib Walters.

In the 30th minute Sundowns initiated an enterprising move which thrilled the fans when Hlompho Kekana played a one-two with Lebohang Mokoena, but his shot went wide and high.

Four minutes later Sundowns thought that they had found the opening goal from a corner kick, when Wayne Arendse headed towards goal, but the ball was headed off the line by Peter Petersen.

The visitors continued attacking and a minute before half-time Malajila had a shot saved by Wayne Sandilands' feet, when it had looked like he was beaten.

Maritzburg coach Ernst Middendorp was pleased with his side's first half performance and was urging his troops to continue and press had in the second.

And United did take the lead in the 70th minute when Buckley unleashed a trademark left-footed shot to make it 1-0.

Four minutes later the former Bafana Bafana winger made it 2-0 in when he linked up with up with Malajila and unleashed a shot from close range that Sandilands could not handle.

Sundowns showed some late fight when they grabbed a goal, but it was too late to mount a fight-back. Teko Modise linked up with Mushekwi and the Zimbabwean international scored with a well taken shot.

As the fulltime whistle rang there were ugly scenes at the stadium when Sundowns supporters rioted with security guards, baying for coach Johan Neeskens' blood.

As a Khosi fan I just wish that those so-called experts who said that Chibuku FC and Marabastad FC are favorites to win the league do not change their predictions. Those palookas made the prediction after Marabastad's fluke win over . Marabastad are getting moered every week while Chibuku FC are being slaughtered every week at Orlando Stadium.

If there is one team that must fire a coach, it should be Sundowns,
not us(the DTC) as its jst that Njenje needs to be a little bit harsh on all the players thats all...

Kuthiwani konjwa, Kae bo yellow means izikhothane, nazo futhi zilaliswe yi Maritzburg Utd, a team with no sponsor, they is an idiomatic expression tht says money can't by success. Tli tli wakaa wakaa another tremble loose, 3X1 loose = 3 looses. Motsepe must just take his money and pay mine workers in Merikana because these employees deserve it then Sundowns players.

in a row.

Now then, after reading that, what makes you think playing fancy football ever made you win games? I'd rather stick to my Skop n Donder football that was brought in by Krol and made us Champions unlike that fancy footwork most commonly used by Cabbage Chiefs, the current Njenje fiasco and Sundogs but yet they still win zilch.
