Leopards steal win over SuperSport
Posted: 13 March 2012 Time: 18:14
Black Leopards stunned SuperSport United after snatching a late 1-0 Premiership victory at Giyani Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.
Mongezi Bobe was the hero of the day for Lidoda Duvha after striking in the 88th minute to seal three valuable points for the relegation-threatened side.
The first half was bereft of goalscoring opportunities as both sides struggled to make the goalkeepers work, and Gavin Hunt rang the changes in the second half by bringing on Bryce Moon and Thabo September.
Mame Niang missed Matsatsantsa’s best chance when he couldn’t direct a close-range header on target from Franklyn Cale’s inswinging corner, and it was left until two minutes from time for Leopards’ hero to emerge.
The result moves Leopards above Cosmos at the bottom of the table, while SuperSport’s slump continues after making it seven League games without a win.
