Maritzburg Cement Third Spot With Baroka Win

Absa Premiership
 
Result: Baroka 0-2 Maritzburg United
 
Date: 15 April 2018
 
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium
 
High-flying Maritzburg United cemented third spot for another week after they defeated Baroka FC 2-0 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
 
The Team of Choice were looking to end a two-game winless run after losing to Bidvest Wits and drawing with Cape Town City in their last two league outings.

The visitors got off to the perfect start when Bandile Shandu broke the deadlock after eight minutes.

Fadlu Davids' charges managed to carve out a couple more chances after 25 minutes with Andreas Feliccia and Pogiso Sanoka going close.

Baroka, meanwhile, struggled to create any meaningful openings in the half as they went into the break trailing.

It got worse for Bakgaga two minutes into the second half when Siphesihle Ndlovu rifled home a superb strike to double United's lead.

Despite the bright start to the second 45 minutes, chances were hard to come by for both sides as the game continued.

The Team of Choice did go close to grabbing a third goal with 10 minutes remaining as Mohau Mokate's free-kick sailed just over the crossbar.

Nevertheless, 2-0 was how the score remained as Davids' men keep their CAF Confederation Cup hopes alive.
