City dim All Stars in Nedbank Cup

Posted: 8 March 2017 Time: 19:12

Polokwane City eased into the second round of the Nedbank Cup with a 3-1 victory over Gauteng ABC Motsepe League side African All Stars at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday.

It was an improved scoreline for the top-flight side on last season when the teams met in the Last 32 as well and they won 2-0, with Puleng Tlolane bagging a brace of goals on that occasion.

He grabbed another one in the first half of this fixture, before the victory was made safe by a superb second from Polokwane’s Zambian midfielder Salulani Phiri.

He blasted the ball home from 35-yards with a thunderous strike with the outside of his boot.

Just before that goal All Stars had come close to an equaliser when Thomas Kgope struck the crossbar with a superb strike from the edge of the penalty-area. Sipho Jembula also struck a post late on for City.

Walter Musona, younger brother of former Kaizer Chiefs striker Knowledge, grabbed the third late on.

There was still time for All Stars to grab a consolation as Thapelo Tshilo conceded a foul in the box and Mohau Motaung netted from 12-yards.

The victory is the first in seven matches for City since they beat Chippa United in mid-December.

It ends a run of five consecutive draws, four of which had been by 1-1 scorelines.
