Golden Arrows beat Mamelodi Sundowns in a League match

Posted: 15 September 2012 Time: 19:54

Golden Arrows beat Mamelodi Sundowns 1-0 in a League match at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.

Thanduyise Khuboni scored the only goal of the match from the penalty spot in injury time to hand the Brazilians their third straight league defeat.

Despite not seeing enough of the ball in the opening stages of the match, the home side threatened to open the scoring in the 16th minute as Thamsanqa Gabuza almost benefitted from a poor back pass from Clayton Daniels, but the defender was saved by goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands who bravely came out to block the shot.

Then it was chance after chance for Sundowns as the combination of Samuel Julies, Themba Zwane, Anthony Laffor and Baffour kept the Arrows defence under pressure, but they failed to get the ball into the back of the net.

Zwane had two great opportunities to open the scoring midway through the first-half, but his shot was blocked by Ritus Krjauklis in the 23rd minute, while he failed to hit the target a minute later.

Sundowns were almost made to regret their wastefulness in the 34th minute when Siyanda Zwane’s cross found Gabuza in the centre of the penalty area, but the striker was unfortunate to have his shot hitting the woodwork.

The second half saw both sides throwing caution to the wind as they committed more players forward in an attempt to break the deadlock, but most of the shots failed to bring the goalkeepers into action.

Arrows should’ve taken the lead in the 53rd minute when Mapolisa skipped past Abel Mabaso on the left, but he delayed his shot and eventually a defender was able to deflect his effort over the crossbar.

Mapolisa then delivered the corner to find Zothwane at the near-post, but his flicked header was palmed away by Sandilands.

Three minutes later it was Themba Zwane’s who got his shot on target at the other end, but his low shot did not create too many problems for Pavels Steinbors, who managed to get both hands on the ball.

Gabuza continued to trouble the Sundowns defence with his running and in the 79th minute it took a desperate tackle from Mabaso to stop him from getting his shot away when he was face-to-face with Sandilands.

In the 66th minute Julies failed to test the goalkeeper after showing good skills to beat two defenders, while Laffor also shot wide after a good run from the right a minute later.

Sundowns were made to pay for the missed chances in the first minute of added time when Thanduyise Khuboni buried his shot from the spot after Arrows had been awarded a penalty for a foul on Gabuza by Tebogo Langerman.

Remarkably, after 16 seasons of the PSL, both Chiefs and Pirates went into this campaign with identical records – 504 games played, 244 wins, 161 draws and 99 losses.

Pirates suffered their 100th defeat at the hands of Moroka Swallows on a fortnight ago, while Chiefs have yet to reach that mark having started this League campaign unbeaten.

They currently lead the all-time points tally for the PSL, with Mamelodi Sundowns in third on 888. Some way behind them are SuperSport United with 786.

Bucs have netted 723 goals to Chiefs’ 713 (Sundowns are the overall leaders with 743), while they have conceded 439 to Chiefs 417. The leakiest defence in the history of the PSL is Moroka Swalows, who have let in 614.
