Sekhukhune United manage to collect maximum points on their visit to Nelspruit where they met TS Galaxy’s at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Babina Noko added to The Rocket’s early season woes with a 1-0 win over the hosts in a 2021/22 DStv Premiership match
The game got off to a rather slow start with neither team able to create any noteworthy chances at goal.
Fresh off a dramatic 1-1 draw at home to Golden Arrows, Babina were looking to inflict more pain on the hosts, who were reeling from a defeat in their last matchtheir opening five games.
The visitors controlled the tempo as they enjoyed more possession, but the hosts’ defence maintained its shape, depriving them of clear-cut chances.
Mxolisi Macuphu looked the most likely to score for Galaxy and in the 58th minute he hit the pole, from a well-worked set-piece move found the towering forward free at the back post but his attempt hit the post and not the back of the net.
Pogiso Mahlangu’s second-half strike fired Babina Noko up to sixth spot on the league standings. Galaxy remain winless in the league and rooted to the bottom of the table on two points after six matches.
The Rockets had another good chance to level matters for in the last six minutes but their strike inside the box was saved by Toaster Nsabata and Babina Noko manage to held on to their second win of the season
The Zambian shot-stopper who was chosen as the man of the match had to be at his best once again in stoppage-time to keep out the host as the visitors ultimately held on for all three points. Sekhukhune United Football Club will return to DStv Premiership action on the 16th on October where they will be welcoming against Cape Town City at Emirates Airline Park Stadium on Saturday afternoon 15:30.
