Tau & Billiat Maintain Top Spot For Downs

Absa Premiership Report: Mamelodi Sundowns v Chippa United 04 April 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Apr 04, 2018 09:27 PM
Absa Premiership
 
Result: Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 Chippa United
 
Date: 04 April 2018
 
Venue: Loftus Versfeld Stadium
 
Goals from Percy Tau and Khama Billiat guided Mamelodi Sundowns to a 2-0 win over Chippa United at Loftus Versfeld.
 
 
The Brazilians enjoyed a promising start to the encounter, although they struggled to carve out clear-cut openings in the first 15 minutes.
 
Sundowns shot-stopper Denis Onyango was called upon on 20 minutes as he produced a superb save in a one-on-one situation to keep the scores level.
 
Three minutes later, Sundowns carved out their first opening as but Anele Ngcongca's effort was blocked by Thabo Rakhale.
 
Chippa's resolve was eventually broken in the 37th minute as Percy Tau slotted home from close range after Chippa failed to clear their lines.
 
Sundowns continued to dominate upon resumption in the second half, with Tau causing a number problems in the final third.
 
Billiat nearly doubled Sundowns' lead in the 68th minute but Chippa shot-stopper Daniel Akpeyi pulled off a wonderful save to keep out the Zimbabwean's free-kick.
 
With 10 minutes remaining, Sundowns secured the second goal as Billiat managed to break free before slotting past Akpeyi with a neat finish.
 
That proved to be the final piece of action in the half as Sundowns ran out 2-0 winners to maintain top spot.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
Downs: 14. Onyango, 4. Langerman, 20. Ngcongca, 6. Arendse, 16. Nascimento, 13. Mabunda, 11. Vilakazi, 8. Kekana, 26. Sirino (Zwane 68'), 33. Billiat (Manyisa 90'), 22. Tau.
 
Subs: 1. Mweene, 32. Madisha, 18. Zwane, 5. Mbekile, 38. Zulu, 19. Brockie, 7. Manyisa.
 
Chippa: 1. Akpeyi, 4. Macheke, 5. Konqobe, 2. Okwuosa, 7. Mako, 11. Mayambela, 27. Mabaso, 23. Mntambo, 6. Sali (Macuphu 68'), 21. Rakhale (Mbokoma 73'), 32. Lentjies.
 
Subs: 29. Mhlongo, 17. Macuphu, 35. Bergman, 8. Mzwakali, 37. Seanego, 26. Mbokoma, 22. Modisane.

Brockie's situation is not different from that of Vila. Every FAU faithfool was criticising him on his arrival, now he's doing well for our team. Nako ya Brockie e tla fihla, ra pshatla fela. Let's not forget that some have a top goalscorer with 5 goals, I mean 5.....

@dellah I think we signed them for free but that is not the case since they know how to find the back of the net.

Brockie is still a Sundowns player, we want Percy Tau to hurt you much as you are hurt now. The team is doing well nd scoring goals, where was Shonga nd Mulenga when CTC knocked u out of the Nedbank cup ? Where was Castro when u lost the title race ?
