Mbesuma On Target As Aces Go Second

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Mpumalanga Black Aces 3-1 Jomo Cosmos 
 
Date: 03 November 2015
 
Venue: Mbombela Stadium
 
Mpumalanga Black Aces returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over Jomo Cosmos at the Mbombela Stadium on Tuesday evening.
 
After a quiet opening to the half, the first meaningful effort arrived in the 27th minute when Charlton Mashumba's free-kick from 25-yards out sailed just wide of the upright.
 
Aces were then presented with an opening in the 32nd minute but Lebogang Manyama failed to converted from close range.
 
Muhsin Ertugral's side eventually broke the deadlock in the 37th minute, as Manyama redeemed himself by picking his spot from close range, after being set up Khuboni.
 
It got better for Aces on the stroke of halftime, as the Player of the Month for October, Collins Mbesuma, headed home Jayiya's corner for his sixth of the season.
 
The home side nearly extended their advantage shortly after the break but Sherwin Naicker was on hand to deny Mbesuma with a fine save.
 
Aces eventually got their third goal in the 55th minute when Judas Mosemaedi turned home a cross from Aubrey Modiba.
 
Jomo Sono's charges reduced the deficit in the 77th minute courtesy of a strike from Brice Aka. His first league goal of the season.
 
However, Aces managed to see out the remaining stages of the second half to secure their fifth win of the campaign.
 
The win sees Ertugral's men move up to second in the Absa Premiership standings level on points with leaders, Platinum Stars, while Cosmos remain in 13th spot.
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Mpumalanga Black Aces: Walters, Mzava, Matsi, Ngalo, Nonyane, Jayiya, Khuboni, Manyama, Modiba, Masina, Mbesuma
 
Jomo Cosmos: Naicker, Nsabiyumva, Mngomezulu, Mthembu, Makobela, Mhone, Zulu, Monare, Mashumba, Lingwati, Mntambo
