Match report: Katlego Mphela scores for Mamelodi Sundowns against Black Leopards

Posted: 9 December 2012 Time: 17:38

Katlego Mphela got the goal as Mamelodi Sundowns beat Black Leopards on Sunday.

Mamelodi Sundowns continued their surge up the table when they defeated Black Leopards 1-0 on Sunday afternoon.

Katlego 'Killer' Mphela netted his first goal of the season in the first half; a clinical header inside the box, after a well-timed cross from Nyasha Mushekwi.

Nine minutes later it should have been 2-0 to the Brazilians after a mistake at the back by Leopards. Centre-back Humphrey Khoza was caught napping when he missed a ball that was crossed into the box but Mushekwi's shot from close range was impressively saved by Ayanda Mtshali.

Five minutes before the interval Leopards striker Rodney Ramagalela could have brought the match level when he received a good low cross from Raymond Monama on the left flank after making an intelligent run, but he could only connect with the ball through a slide and Wayne Sandilands was well positioned to make the save.

In the 47th minute Anthony Laffor put in a good cross from the left wing but Mushekwi headed wide with a diving header inside the box.

Eight minutes later Mushekwi again had a chance when Elias Pelembe put in a good cross from the right flank, but the striker headed high.

Six minutes after the hour mark the hosts should have settled the points. After retrieving the ball in their own box from a Leopards free-kick, Teko Modise orchestrated a counter attack and passed to an unmarked Laffor, but the Liberian shot agonisingly shot wide across the face of goal with his left.

With 19 minutes left in the match, Leopards captain Mongezi Bobe had a low shot from outside the box well saved by Sandilands.

The victory stretches Sundowns' unbeaten streak to five League matches.

But you are out of shape, give Windhoek lager a break mchana. You will be extremely lucky to make it into the final afcon squad. To play in that competition you need to be at your absolute best mchana.

Good luck!

Sundowns is a balance team,STRIKERS,Mphela ,Moshweki and Henyekane and maybe Manqele.We only lack in the middle when Nyandoro is not in,i think if we can get Negadze or Michael Morton we can compete wiyh anyone,Sanweni is not commanding on 6 and Teko plays when the team is playing @ the back i dont complain much,uma kufe isisu,ne monto iduma ngejini

No matter what other pple say but da fact of da matter is Sundowns Footbal club started very badly but with da nu coach some of our players are regaining their confidence under him and some of our gud players dat were overlooked are getting game time so my point is da sky is da limit it climbing up da ladder. Yes its nyc to us Sundowns fanz but some supporterz Mhhhhhhhhh they feel intimidated *wink*

Mpela is back! Hope he has got his head right to score lots of goals each game like Messi does. A goal every other game is not good enough for his undoubted talent.
