PSL Match Report: Platinum Stars 2-1 Free State Stars

Posted: 13 August 2014 Time: 22:16

Platinum Stars ran out 2-1 winners over Free State Stars and condemned them to the bottom of the Absa Premiership log on Wednesday night.

A brace from Ndumiso Mabena saw Platinum Stars come from a goal behind to beat the Ea Lla Koto at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
 
The win was Dikwena’s first of the season, while the loss for Free State was their second in two matches and leaves them as the only team in the League yet to collect a point.
 
Platinum Stars moved up to ninth place on the table with their first three points.
 
It was the worst possible start to the game for the home side who found themselves a goal behind after a Moeketsi Sekola goal five minutes in, 1-0.
 
Nonetheless, Platinum Stars picked themselves up and began mounting a comeback that saw the home side playing some beautiful passing football, but they proved to be wasteful in front of goal.
 
That was until the 26th minute when Mabena found the equaliser after a sustained period of play from Dikwena to take the match into the break locked at 1-1.
 
Platinum Stars continued to dominate matters after the break and took the lead in the 53rd minute thanks to a second goal from Mabena. The Dikwena striker did well to head home a corner-kick, 2-1.
 
Free State tried to find their way back into the game, but were unable to do so.

HOME: Platinum Stars

Coach: Allan Freese
Formation: four two three one

AWAY: Free State Stars

Coach: Tom Saintfiet
Formation: four four two

I wish all youngsters will get an opportunity to play elsewhere rather than enjoying being at the bench for 20 years on the so called "big teams'. Mabena was under pressure at Pirates that's why now he is doing well. Regular game time makes a player. The likes of Masango will never shine from the bench and if Chiefs decide to bench him again, he must try elsewhere to show his true worth in the game.
