Kgaswane's Superb Brace Ends Baroka's Five-Game Winless Run

Absa Premiership Report: Baroka v Cape Town City 27 February 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 27, 2018 09:34 PM
Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Baroka FC 2-0 Cape Town City 
 
Date: 27 January 2018
 
Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium 
 
Baroka FC ended their five-game winless run in the Absa Premiership with a 2-0 victory over Cape Town City at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.
 
 
Benni McCarthy’s charges should have been ahead in the second minute after Judas Moseamedi went clear on goal, but his looped shot came off the upright and was comfortably cleared away.
 
in the 19th minute, Lyle Lakay was unlucky to see his goal-bound shot deflected inside the box after having a lot of space to pick his spot.
 
Mpho Kgaswane eventually broke the deadlock for the home side in the 35th, working a brilliant training-ground free-kick to split open the wall and rifle his shot past the unexpectant Shu-aib Walters.
 
The Citizens struggled with their finishing for most of the half and went into the break trailing 1-0 to Bakgaga.
 
City saw more of the ball in the first 10 minutes of the second stanza but could not create clear-cut chances.
 
Kgaswane nearly got his second goal for Bakgaga in the 65th minute with a grass-cutting shot from outside the area that sailed narrowly wide of Walters' upright.
 
Shane Roberts was introduced for City in the 79th minute and almost restored parity immediately, but he failed to hit the target from 12-yards out with only Dlamini to beat. 
 
McCarthy then brought on Ebrahim Seedat with five minutes remaining and the pacy full-back carved out an opening straight away when he crossed for Judas Moseamedi, who failed to direct his header on target.
 
However, the Limpopo side sealed the win in the 89th minute when Kgaswane bagged his second goal with a superb left-footed strike from 25-yards out following a blistering counter-attack.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Baroka: 33. Dlamini, 15. Mothupa, 7. Chawapiwa (Mapheto 90+2'), 24. Banda, 2. Kgoetyane, 23. Kgaswane, 8. Mdantshane, 4. Madubanya, 29. Mohwatseleng, 12. Motupa (Sodi 81'). 17. Ngalande (Mosele 65').
 
Subs: 16. Vries, 25. Sodi, 28. Makgaga, 18. Mapheto, 14. Mosele, 26. Rethabile, 13. Sidumo.
 
City: 1. Walters, 2. Mkhize, 3. Mngonyama, 16. Johannes, 5. Edmilson, 19.  Putsche, 26. Nodada, 21. Ralani (Masina 70'), 30. Martin (Roberts 79'), 7. Lakay (Seedat 86'), 9. Moseamedi. 
 
Subs: 15. Stephens, 6. Seedat, 27. Gumede, 13. Modise, 29. Roberts, 24. Masina, 14. Nana.

Benni is winner and he doesn't celebrate mediocrity to say he must accept that S.A. strikers can't score is utter nonsense. He must keep hammering them that's what great coaches do.. Pep ,mou he learnt from the best

@mbheduyajika your opening remarks nearly elicited my response but your closing remarks just threw everything you said under the bus therefore I will not engage you further on this matter...

@chiefs is useless the problem is how you loose. benni is a soar loser. Ive never heard him say they got beaten coz the other team was just too good. He always blames his players. and that is why i say that will come back to haunt him. If its not the refrees its his players(patosi). 2ndly, he cannot blame strikers that they cant convert, our strikers are our 1st scapegoats in RSA football. we all know strikers in SA are poor so he must adapt like all other teams that win the league with poor strikers. He still needs classes and experience on junior leagues. He does not know how to address other people. he is a joke. i just wish that big fat guy from free state stars kicks his ass(the one that was grabbing everybody in that azulu vs free state stars game)

Benni must register his gran mother as a player to score goals for Cape Town City. How can he insult his players like this? And he expect them to perform? Shame on you Benni!!!

Bennie was very calm yesterday that's why he lost the game. He should be hash as usual his donkeys need a whip everyday.

His problem is slamming his players in public. He's hurting his players morale. He'll start losing the dress room with his poor man management soon. He's trying to be a mourhino. He must learn from micho. Benni is too emotional to be a coach.

Benni took yesterday's defeat like a man. He didn't blame fatigue, weather, referee, his opponents for parking the bus or muthi for the Citizens' troubles.

There's nothing wrong with Bennie, this happens to any coach. scoring goals is only the problem in SA. Coach Benni started the season well and we were all praising him forgetting that in football anything can happen. If Benni is an amateur coach then i guess Steve mr Oxford Komphela, Roger de sa and Erick are amateurs too. Those coaches do all they can to make the team play and score goal and at least now Steve is starting to be loved again.

I beg to differ with the notion that benni is not cut out to be a coach ,he can't be a bad coach over night ,he beat Gavin hunt 4 times in succession and people were singing him praises now after losing 2 nill all of a sudden he is a bad coach ? No I don't agree

benni is good at his tv anticts and acts of hooliganism. as a coach i think coaching in the psl was a big ask for him. he is good behind the scenes (U19 and U15) . he still thinks he is a player. he likes fighting other coachs and opposition players. CPT City player are now starting to not want to play for him. soon they will get him fired and Tinkler will come back and take over. Benni is just a boy who likes tv too much. this job is for gentlemen
