Ngezana grabbed Amakhosi’s opening goal on the night, where the Soweto side went on to beat Head Coach Steve Barker’s side 4-0.

“Siyabonga Ngezana, we released him over the week, I would have loved to have him available on Sunday, I know there is an element of winning mentality that we get from Eric Mathoho and the only replacement that we have in this moment is Siyabonga Ngezana,” Middendorp told the media after the game.

“He came back, trained twice and for me it was not a question at all to bring him in and I think it was a very qualified performance. This is something that I am not too worried about, we have now 10 days, who can make it, we are dealing with around 30 players but we will find the combinations,” he added.
