Arrows Deny Stars Third Spot

Absa Premiership
 
Teams: Golden Arrows 1-1 Free State Stars
 
Date: 07 April 2018
 
Venue: Princes Magogo Stadium
 
Free State Stars missed the chance to move into third spot in the Absa Premiership after they drew 1-1 with Golden Arrows on Saturday afternoon.
 
 
There was a good midfield battle in the opening stages as both sides looked to settle in the first 15 minutes.
 
Lerato Lamola looked threatening for the hosts up front and he went close after 19 minutes with a powerful strike that sailed just wide of the upright.
 
There was a good tempo to the first half, although clear-cut chances were hard to come by for both teams.
 
Clinton Larsen's men looked to take control of the game with 15 minutes remaining in the half, although they struggled to break down a resolute Stars defence.
 
That proved to be the trend for the rest of the first stanza as the sides entered the break deadlocked at 0-0.
 
Ten minutes into the second half, Ea Lla Koto took the lead when Nkanyiso Mngwengwe deflected Patrick Phungwayo's cross into his own net.
 
However, Arrows leveled matters on 72 minutes as Siphelele Magubane surged into the box before slotting past the on-rushing Sangare.
 
Both sides upped the tempo as the second half went on, with both sides pushing for a winning goal in the final 15 minutes.
 
In the end, neither side could carve out a clear-cut chance and they were forced to settle for a share of the spoils on the day.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Arrows: 1. Mbaeva, 5. Mzava, 20. Mathiane, 21. Mngwenge, 2. Nkombelo, 28. Bilankulu, 35. Zuke, 37. Ndwandwe, 6. Shonga, 4. Venter, 41. Lamola.
 
Subs: 32. Gumede, 24. Molefe, 17. Jooste, 19. Mutizwa, 3. Buthelezi, 27. Magubane, 25. Sibiya.
 
Stars: 23. Sangare, 2. Mobbie, 29. Phungwayo, 22. Keita, 28. Mahamutsa, 50. Vilakazi, 4. Makhaula, 27. Tchilimbou, 39. Cosse, 11. Jantjie, 26. Dlamini.
 
Subs: 32. Ngobeni, 6. Teyise, Hlubi, 20. Mashego, 25. Potsane, 21. Mthembu, 15. Mokhuoane.
