Cape Town City’s struggles continue

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Cape Town City’s winless run in the Absa Premier League continues, this after they conceded a late goal in injury time to pick-up a 1-all draw against SuperSport United at Mbombela stadium in Nelspruit.

Struggling defending league champions Bidvest Wits also played to 1-all draw against Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokhaba stadium in Polokwane.

Looking to return to winning ways, Cape Town City travelled to Mpumulanga to play Matsatsantsa a Pitori in a league match on Saturday.

The game got off to a bright start both teams looking to take game to each early on, however they were undone by lack of rhythm in the final third which resulted in limited goal scoring opportunities.

SuperSport United who are playing catch-up in the league thanks to their exploits in the Caf Confederations cup, should have taken the lead 13 minutes into the contest.

This after catching their opponent on the counter attack, however Jeremy Brockie could not make contact with Thuso Phala’s low pass across goal.

With the game heading for a goalless draw at half-time, Aubrey Ngoma broke the deadlock to ensure his team take a 1-nil to the break.

Despite SuperSport United trying to play on the front in search of the equaliser, just like the first the second half got off to a slow start, nothing working for both teams going forward.

In the closing stages of the contest, United upped the ante committing more numbers going in search of the equalising goal.

And they managed to restore parity in the referee’s added time to salvage a 1-all draw.

In another kick-off on Saturday, a late goal down in Polokwane this time by Eleazar Rodgers end Bidvest Wits a point on the road against Polokwane City.

Rodney Ramagalela opened the scoring for the Rise and Shine six minutes into the second half, before Wits scored in injury time to salvage a draw.
