Matitzburg United beat Polokwane City

Posted: 3 August 2013 Time: 22:14

Yakubu Mohammed scored the only goal of the match as Maritzburg United defeated Polokwane City 1-0 in a League encounter at the Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday night.

United’s new frontman Mohammed was full of running throughout the match and was not shy to fire towards the target and was eventually rewarded with a goal midway through the second half.

The Ghanaian showed his intentions from the onset, sending his powerful free-kick over the crossbar in the fifth minute, before shooting wide of the upright seconds later.

Six minutes later United goalkeeper Shu-aib was forced into action, diving to his right to parry a misdirected clearance from his own defender Mario Booysen, which almost flew into the back of the net.

United then had two good chances to break the deadlock, but Mohammed headed Dillon Sheppard’s cross wide in the 16th minutes, while the latter curled his free-kick over the bar three minutes later.

Heinrich Isaacks should have broken the deadlock in the 31st minute when he was left alone at the far post to meet a low cross from Ruben Cloete, only to fire wide of goal.

Ernst Middendorp’s side had a penalty appeal turned down in the 44th minute when Cloete was caught with a late tackle on the edge of the penalty area but the referee awarded a free kick just outside the box.

Mohammed took over the set piece duties once again but the Ghanaian failed to trouble City goalkeeper and captain Modiri Marumo as his effort sailed wide of goal.

Duncan Lechesa’s men had the first chance of the second half in the 55th minute, but Thabo Rakhale was denied by a good save from Walters, who also managed to push the ball away from the onrushing Sphesihle Nzimande.

The deadlock was broken in the 68th minute from a free-kick which saw Sheppard nudging the ball towards Mohammed, who then blasted his low shot into the back of the net to send the home crowd into frenzy.

Terrance Mandaza tried to extend the lead in the 82nd minute when he unleashed a shot from outside the box, but his effort went wide as United held on for a slender win.

Can't believe the hopeless Orlando Pirates coach failed to see potential from this player, a top goal scorer in his home league. Yet we keep strikers who struggle to score 5 goals in a season.

YAKUBU MOHAMED'S CASE REMINDS ME OF "EMANUEL EMENIKE" OF NIGERIA. THE GUY PLAYED FOR ACES AND WAS REJECTED BY BIG TEAMS BEFORE GOING TO "TURKEY" AND RETURNING IN 2013 AFCON AND BECOMING THE "TOP GOAL SCORER".

THE BIG THREE IN THE PSL CHIEFS, PIRATES, SUNDOWNS SEEM TO BE GOOD AT IGNORING REAL TALENT.

Their scouts only look for GAUTENG PLAYERS. Look what they did to SIYANDA XULU(Now plays in Russia)??????

GAUTENG BLACKS JEALOUS ##### :D
