Ajax Cape Town Mamelodi Sundowns PSL

Posted: 13 August 2014 Time: 21:29

Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns came up short again following a 1-0 defeat to Ajax at Cape Town Stadium tonight.

The Brazilians were desperate for a win following an opening game draw, but instead it was the Urban Warriors who came out on top, courtesy of Travis Graham's second half goal.

Both sides started the game with attacking intent, but neither was able to create decent chances in the wet conditions.

Ajax’s best opportunity saw Keagan Dolly firing over the bar, while for Sundowns Katlego Mashego was unable to keep his volley down.

The second half saw more attacking play, but it was the home team who were to take the lead when Graham fired in a cracking low drive from 20 yards out which gave Sundowns keeper Wayne Sandilands no chance. Nathan Paulse provided the assist.

Downs played with more pace and purpose after the goal as Tebogo Langerman got down the left flank with good effect, but they were unable to create many chances bar a Mame Niang header which went wide.

Ajax could have given themselves a two-goal cushion with 15 minutes left, but Paulse saw his glancing header going over the bar.

Downs continued to commit numbers forward in attack, but captain Teko Modise saw his shot blocked, while in the dying seconds of the game Themba Zwane wasted a glorious chance when he hammered a volley over the bar from right in front of goal.

Elnihno Bongs8 chakino Nyasha failed us but when Malajila started playing we won the league, Malajila is a hard worker just like cownkatha, Nyasha is a cow he failed when he played the whole season under Neeskens.

Bongs8 chakino WHAT DID NYATAMA DO SINCE HE CAME TO DOWNS? He failed dismally, you're disappointing me dearly, MORIRI is superb you cant compare him to Nyatama, didnt you see what he did last season when he stepped in to win us the league, he closed the fake cowgolden gap & stopped the zoorena train. Nyatama was given a chance in MTN8 & he failed let him GO forever mani.
