Sekhukhune United F.C.

Ends in a stalemate in Emirates Airline Park

Sekhukhune United and SuperSport United played to a 0-0 draw in a 2021-22 DStv Premiership match at Emirates Airline Park on Saturday evening.

Mantsantsantsa a Pitori came into the game with high Covid -19 cases and they didn’t have some of their key players, but that didn’t seem to affect them as they have started the game at a high pace.

A few minutes in the first half the visitors had a golden chance to find the net but Thamsanqa Gabuza ‘s shot at goal hit the woodwork with Toaster Nsabata beaten.

Sekhukhune United introduced the pair of Vusimuzi Mncube and Tshediso Patjie after the interval and they made an immediate impact as the hosts registered their first shot in anger with 49 minutes on the clock. Mncube had his attempt blocked by Kegan Johannes, who then blocked Prince Nxumalo’s follow-up effort.

Yusuf Maart and Teboho Mokoena both tried their luck from distance, but neither failed to test the goalkeeper at either end of the pitch.

Babina Noko suffered a huge blow before the hour mark as the influential Edwin Gyimah was forced off the field with a back injury.

in the end, the two teams had to settle for a share of the spoils. The result leaves the two clubs in sixth and eighth spots on the league standings respectively with one game remaining before the Christmas break.

Sekhukhune United FC will return to DStv Premiership action on Saturday 22th December, as they will be visiting Chippa United FC at home (Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Gqeberha) Kick-off for this encounter will be at 17h00.XI: Nsabata; Jampies, Chabalala, Gyimah (Mbonani 59′), Mobbie, Leepile, Parusnath (Mncube 46′), Maart, Chawapihwa (Patjie 46′), Nxumalo (Mahlangu 79′), Mashumba.
