Mamelodi Sundowns beat Maritzburg United 3-0

Posted: 15 February 2013 Time: 21:57

Mamelodi Sundowns continued their good form under Pitso Mosimane with a resounding 3-0 win against Maritzburg United United in Port Elizabeth on Friday evening.

Following their goalless draw to Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday, there were fears that the Brazilians’ troubles up-front would continue. However, such speculation was dispelled when they took the lead four minutes in.

Maritzburg’s defence was left gaping at the back, which allowed for Elias Pelembe to supply a ball into the box towards Katlego Mphela, who made no error by turning on the ball and striking the back of the net.

Mphela should have secured his brace for the evening when a perfect cross was supplied to him across the face of goal by Anthony Laffor, but the Bafana Bafana striker failed to tap it in from close range.

Jabulani Shongwe continued Sundowns’ dominance in the play when he shot from range, ten minutes before the break, but it failed to hit the target.

In the 65th minute the scoreline did turn to 2-0 in favour of the visitors, when Teko Modise won the ball inside his own half and launched it towards Shongwe. The midfielder did well to run inside the box, fend off Michael Morton, and strike the ball into the back of Walters’ net.

A chance then fell to the substitute Nyasha Mushekwi in the 77th minute when he beat his defender to shoot at goal, but there was not enough power on the end of it to trouble Walters.

Laffor followed it up with an even more half-hearted attempt, but the Liberian made up for that mistake seven minutes from time when he supplied a cross to Mushekwi, who tapped in an effort from two-yards out.

Basheshe bahleka! Let them talk, let them design special programmes for bafana 7, while. we are busy marching towards number 3. Its was nice to win so convincingly, but I still believe we were not sharp enough upfront! Jabulani shongwe is a gem, but am I the only one who can see he's not really fit? His pace is suspect, and so is his power on the ball. But he's good though

To those who keep asking about Thami Sangweni, where is Lucky Baloyi? Where is Ndumiso Mabena? There can only be. 11 players on the field and three subs. Kanti do you want Downs to filed 18 players? Believe me, if the rules allowed, we would have played 20 in one go!

Don't take it personal Sandawana. I believe they ask Sangweni because he is such a quality player to be benched. He will never be compared to Lucky Baloyi. That is like comparing Parker to Ronaldo. Mabena is a striker and Pirates strikers are doing well that is the reason we don't see him.
