Polokwane City striker Puleng Tlolane reveals the secret of how his side managed to snatch a point courtesy of his excellent finish against Kaizer Chiefs.
Tlolane pounced on the rebound after midfielder Randy Ngobe’s rocket shot cannoned back off Itumeleng Khune’s crossbar, applying great technique to half-volley home to stun the Amakhosi.

But far from hanging on for a point after that 63rd-minute goal, it was actually Rise and Shine who looked more likely to score another for the remainder of the match as they more than matched Chiefs for attacking intent.
The striker explained: “That’s how we play, our philosophy is to attack. We knew they were going to park the bus [after they went 1-0 up] and the coach told us that we must go to them, so that’s what we did.
“We played very well. We didn’t want to lose two games in a row so it wasn’t an easy game but at least a draw is better than nothing. We played two games where I didn’t score so I wanted to score a goal.”
