SuperSport United beat Free State Stars

Posted: 3 August 2013 Time: 22:10

SuperSport United began their League campaign in style as they came from a goal down to defeat 10-man Free State Stars 4-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium.

Striker Mame Niang was the star man for Matsatsantsa, scoring two goals and providing two assists in a man of the match performance. The victory sees Cavin Johnson’s side go top of the Premiership table. Stars has Soriola Gege sent off in the first-half.

Stars claimed the lead as early as the 11th minute when Mngezi Bobe’s cross-cum-shot from the left flank slipped through the hands of goalkeeper Ronwen Williams and found its way over the goal line.

At the other end of the field, Ea Lla Koto’s new goalkeeper Daniel Agyei had a couple of heart-in-mouth moments on his debut, though he also pulled off a good save to keep out a deflected David Mathebula shot.

Williams went someway to redeeming himself in the 33rd minute when he denied Stars striker Abdul Basit after a strong run forward from Reuben Thebakang.

Just before half time the visitors were reduced to 10 men when defender Soriola Gege was sent off for a second bookable offence, elbowing Mame Niang in the penalty area. The striker converted the subsequent penalty to make it 1-1 at the break.

Early in the second half, SuperSport went ahead for the first time when Bennett Chenene played a quick one-two with Niang before firing a left-footed shot from just outside the box into the bottom corner of the net to make it 2-1.

United substitute Sameehg Doutie made it 3-1 in the 85th minute, volleying home a fine goal from a Niang knock-down at a corner kick, and in injury time Niang himself completed a brace by beating Agyei to a long ball to complete the scoring at 4-1.

I'm disappointed in Komphela and his thugs (players) . They never came to play football but to hack anything that walks past them..........they had all the controls of this game in the beginning. Their game plan was a downfall......in my book the referee did nothing wrong. Actually that Venter boy should have walked after trying so much to have Mdledle decapitated ..................guys before we judge the referees , let's analyze first ...I Thank U

Bobby wants Aces case for fielding eligible player 'Khanyeza' to be taken by himself.
Let me make it clear Khanyeza's case is still pending hence they can still field him untill he start serving his 12 months ban only if he loses the case on appeal.
So why bobby wanna handle big things that dont need him more or less?
In this country, a fraud case is more serious n the court said there was no proggress with the case n they closed it. no one is following bobby though he is involved in a murder

Well done to ssu and stupid zebras must focus on their team and leave the galaxies alone,we are the ones who will be playing ssu and today we are playing in Egypt,when last did the zebras leave the country to play in the champions league,since the bb's time and you talk as if you know how to play there.there only player that might have experienced playing there is cowde when he was with ssu,so idiots stop making noise here.we won a star in 95 and you have been trying to emulate us since then,you failed dismally that you even stoped trying,now you wanna try again,you will till you admit that OP is the best team in the southern hemisphere,
