Clever Boys shock Sundowns

Posted: 1 March 2014 Time: 18:08

Bidvest Wits came from a goal down to shock big spenders Mamelodi Sundowns 3-1 in an Absa Premiership encounter at Bidvest Stadium on Saturday evening.

Goals from Sthembiso Ngcobo, Matthew Booth and Calvin Kadi cancelled out Dove Wome’s early strike.
 
It was a game in which Bidvest Wits’ players who are on loan from Sundowns were not allowed to play due to the standard clause in Sundowns’ on-loan player contracts. Unavailable for Gavin Hunt on the night was Kwanda Mngonyama and Denis Onyango.
 
But it did not matter as the home side were full value for three very important points in the League race.
 
Sundowns got off to a flying start with Wome prodding home in the fifth minute. Teko Modise’s ball into the area fell favourably at the Togo midfielder’s feet and he made no mistake tapping in from close range in his first start for The Brazilians since December.
 
Moeneeb Josephs made a string of saves before Ngcobo pulled the home side level in the 27th minute. Sibusiso Vilakazi played the ball wide to debutant Tebogo Moerane who’s superb first time cross found Ngcobo at the back post; the former Kaizer Chiefs striker put the ball past Kennedy Mweene from close range.
 
Then Rodney Ramagalela found the back of the net 10 minutes later but his effort was not allowed as the assistant referee called him offside.
 
Bidvest Wits took the lead seven minutes into the second stanza through former Brazilian Matthew Booth who headed past Mweene from a Sibusiso Vilakazi corner-kick.
 
Calvin Kadi secured the points for the hosts in the 65th minute with a crisp volley. A cross to the far post came in from Ngcobo and Kadi balanced himself before placing a volley past a helpless Mweene.
 
Sundowns had a couple of chances through Anthony Laffor, Rashid Sumaila and Lebohang Mokoena late in the game but Josephs was up to the task in goal.
 
The win moves Bidvest Wits level on points with Abafana Ba’Style in second place on the table.

Inconsistency will never win you the league. You are pose no treat to Chiefs defending the league. Too late for Gogo.

Gogo is your chiefs team, we can only wait and see after there's 5 or less games Left poi, you must remember you still have to play bucs (we will beat you, you know that) Platinum Stars (they beat you all the time), flops (they always dominates you but somehow lose, maybe different next game), wits (if they keep up with that kind of form, 3 points for them against you), ajax (they guaranteed to beat you), tuks (you know them well don't you!), Free state stars (by then they won't have any choice but to get the victory, else it will be mvela for them) and polokwane city (no different from free state stars situation). So as you can see for yourself it won't be an easy run in for you poi, there's a possibility that you might lose almost all of the above games and only time will tell and that's why I will always believe we have a shot at this title, there's no reason not to cause as long as we collect maximum points like we're doing now we in it to win it. Once and always bucs.

sgelekeqe bucs captain  Are you counting games in hands again? Remember last season with your games in hand, and just ask Sundowns as well!!!


While you at it, losing to Plk City wont get you closer to us!!!

Cafe cl 2014  Chiefs have points in the bag too. So even if they have games in hands, fortunately they still have points in the bag and leading by a huge margin
