Nedbank Cup last-32

Posted: 22 February 2014 Time: 14:20

Second-half goals from Getaneh Kebede and Asive Langwe handed Bidvest Wits a hard-fought 2-0 victory over AmaBEE FC in a Nedbank Cup last-32 match at Sinaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The PSL side were expected to easily dominate the cup tie but found their hosts exceptionally difficult opponents, and had AmaBEE capitalised on their early chances, it could well have been a different outcome.

The minnows started strongly and forced Moeneeb Josephs into an early save, with the goalkeeper keeping out an effort from Mofutsana.

On eight minutes AmaBEE’s forward Cele had a great opportunity to put his side ahead, but he failed to take advantage of a one-on-one situation and allowed Josephs to bail his team out.

The SAFA Second Division side looked the likelier scorers throughout the first half, but they needed goalkeeper Rakoma to make an outstanding stop to deny Robin Ngalande netting for the Clever Boys against the run of play.

Yet that close shave still didn’t deter AmaBEE, who proceeded to hit the post through a header from Cele, while Ledwaba missed a great chance just before the break.

Wits made a change at the start of the second half which saw Ayanda Lubelo replace Denver Mukamba in midfield, and the visitors nearly opened the scoring in the 49th minute through another effort from Ngalande that Rakoma managed to keep out.

Seven minutes later the top flight broke the deadlock and took a 1-0 lead courtesy of Ethiopian striker Kebede, who finally had the beating of the excellent Rakoma.

The Students, having established a lead and seen off the pressure of their ambitious hosts, were able to control the game but had to wait until the 89th minute to ensure victory, with Langwe netting the second goal to seal a 2-0 victory.

AmaBEE: Rakoma, Sethogwa, Itumeleng, Ledwaba, Mofutsana (Ntsoane 68’), Ngwenya, Pietersen (Ramotshwane 68’), Lamola, Nkoana, Cele, Hlongwane.

Wits: Josephs, Booth, Langwe, Isaacs, Ngalande, Kebede, Mngonyama, Mukamba (Lubelo 46’), Madubanya, Kubyane, Ntshangase.

I hope Ntshangase does not lose focus. Playing against AmaBEE while also sitting on the bench as a substitute.

Mr. Editor, I guess you remember the song, "Your mind is here with me but your body is on the other side of town, Yes it is"! Now relate it to Ntshangase.

Azania it is your body is here with me but your mind is on the other side of town. I was also confused by the Ntshangase's but then i thought maybe the one starting on the bench is a goalkeeper. Hola Azania hola...

I would not be surprised if Ngwenya who is on the field and on the substitute bench is the same player for amaBEE.
