Premier Soccer League match report Mpumalanga Black Aces 2-1 Golden Arrows

Posted: 12 March 2014 Time: 19:31

Mpumalanga Black Aces eased some of their relegation concerns with a 2-1 defeat of fellow strugglers Golden Arrows in the Premiership on Wednesday night.

AmaZayoni collected maximum points thanks to goals from Method Mwanjali and Themba Zwane, while Rudolph Bester was on target for Arrows at King Zwelithini Stadium. 

Clive Barker’s side asked the questions early in the match with Thabo Qalinge testing Arthur Bartman in the fifth minute, while Abia Nale did the same seven minutes later.

The deadlock was broken in the 24th minute as Mwanjali’s freekick was deflected off Joseph Musonda past Bartman into the back of the net.

Five minutes later Vuyisile Ntombayithethi headed over the crossbar at the other end after connecting with a cross from Siyanda Zwane.

However, it was the away side who finished the half strongly with Qalinge curling an effort wide in the 30th minute, while Tendai Ndoro also drilled his shot wide eight minutes later.

Arrows came close to levelling matters in the 56th minute when Deon Hotto picked out debutant Christopher Katongo inside the box, but his header was saved by Jackson Mabokgwane.

The Aces goalkeeper was eventually beaten in the 62nd minute as substitute Bester headed home from close range to bring some relief to the home crowd.

Both sides pushed forward for the winner but it was AmaZayoni who secured maximum points in the 74th minute as Okonkwo squared the ball for Zwane to tap into the net at the second attempt.

Arrows remain at the bottom of the table with 13 points from 20 matches, while Aces are up to 10th place with 27 points.

At some point Rudolf Bester was a marvel to watch but he ruined his own career... how many games do you have to sit on the bench/in the stands to realise that that particular team is not for you? 

Players should refrain from lengthy commitments that will ruin them. A 5season contract to sit on the bench of any team is not good. Players need to wake up

(jus my opinion)

There's no way arrows will bounce back,they are going down to the NFD maybe Manto Madlala will wake up she's too relaxed ever since they got promotion almost a decade ago. They sell players and not replace them with quality. you cant compete in the PSL with a team full of youngers or unknown players. there must be a mix of experience and youngsters. the only senior player is Khuboni and himself he has never played for any other team in the psl only arrows, he's just inexperienced himself. Manto Killed this team
