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.

Sunloans as usual. Money cant buy u success. Buy them all & loan the back again.

Pitso is not a coach. He is a joke.

Forever Fearless.

A good and strong team on the papers. Not in the field of play

I said it Sundowns is not the strongest team in South Africa, they are going to come back early from CAF Championship. They cant weaken their opponents in Africa....Go and sign formed players from coming opponents.

Pick yourselves up boys, there are 28 more matches in the league.  I am not happy about the "dark cloud over our heads" remark from coach Pitso. We had an elaborate preseason, brought in some quality players into the squad, we do not expect a winless streak of 3 games.

Fix your defence Pitso.

Pitsoso has cost us again with his mediocre and wants me to support him! Never! Pitsoso, soon will have no job and I wonder what's gonna happen to his many new signees that do not fit into Downs system of play.
