Champions Wits Fall To Dikwena

Absa Premiership Report: Bidvest Wits v Platinum Stars 16 December 2017

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 16, 2017 10:03 PM
Absa Premiership
 
Result: Bidvest Wits 0-1 Platinum Stars
 
Date: 16 December 2017
 
Venue: Bidvest Stadium
 
Bidvest Wits' struggles in the Absa Premiership continued, after they lost 1-0 to Platinum Stars at the Bidvest Stadium.
 
 
After a quiet opening, Stars broke the deadlock on 17 minutes, when Robert Ng'ambi rose well to head home from a corner, 0-1.
 
The Clever Boys nearly leveled matters in the 31st minute, as Thabang Monare rattled the upright with a strike from distance.
 
Despite going behind, Gavin Hunt's charges continued to dominate the possession in the first half, but they were unable to carve out clear-cut chances.
 
That proved to be the trend for the rest of the half, as Roger De Sa's men went into the break with a 1-0 lead.
 
Hunt opted for a double change at the start of the second half, as Amr Gamal and Gerald Phiri replaced Mhango and Daylon Claasen.
 
Wits carved out a couple chances in the opening 10 minutes as Thulani Hlatshwayo and Phiri went close.
 
The second half continued in the same fashion as the first with Wits dominating without creating chances.
 
With 12 minutes remaining, Eleazar Rodgers went close to leveling matters but his glancing header sailed wide of the upright.
 
However ,Dikwena managed to see out the closing stages of the second half to claim a vital victory on the road.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Wits:  1. Keet, 3. Hlatshwayo, 7. Klate, 8. Monare, 9. Rodgers, 13. Hlanti, 14. Claasen, 15. Mkhwanazi, 17. Mhango, 33. Frolser, 40. Ntshangase.
 
Stars: 35. Visser, 23. Mnguni, 5. Sithole, 25. Mthethwa, 21. Zulu, 2. Mere, 12. Masalesa, 15. Msomi, 22. Ng'ambi, 40. Nyanda, 17. Ntuli.

Hunt keeps thinking he will wake up and find it was all a bad dream. He's not dreaming, but his players are sleepwalking
