Teams: Platinum Stars 1-2 Free State Stars

Platinum Stars are still searching for their first Absa Premiership win of the year after they lost 2-1 to Free State Stars, who have moved up to third.

The Rustenburg-based side were without head coach Roger De Sa, who was suspended following his dismissal last Friday.

There was not much separating the two sides in the opening 10 minutes as they were both still trying to find their rhythm in the match.

Robert Ng’ambi came close to giving Dikwena the lead in the 18th minute with a header inside the box, but his effort sailed over the bar.

Dikwena did find the breakthrough four minutes before halftime through Gift Sithole who made all their dominance count for something.

The match went into the break with Luc Eymael’s charges trailing Dlamini’s men 1-0.

Dlamini was forced into a substitution 10 minutes into the second half as defender Sibusiso Mthethwa got injured and was replaced by Willem Mwedihanga.

Ea Lla Koto were beginning to get into the game after 65 minutes with Sinethemba Jantjie instrumental on the right wing.

Ng’ambi almost doubled the hosts’ lead in the 72nd minute with an acrobatic over-head kick inside the box but his effort went over the bar.

However, with nine minutes remaining,  Anas brought parity for Ea Lla Koto as the striker, un-marked, headed home from six-yards out.Dikwena were camped in the visitors half as they pushed for a winning goal, while the likes of Phiri and Ng'ambi were denied in the final five minutes.

Unfortunately for the hosts, Ea Lla Koto snatched the winner with two minutes remaining as Anas bagged his second with a clinical low strike from close range.
