Wits Come From Behind To Hit SuperSport For Four

Absa Premiership Report: SuperSport United v Bidvest Wits 27 January 2018

By Soccer Laduma - Jan 27, 2018 07:58 PM
Absa Premiership
 
Teams: SuperSport United 1-4 Bidvest Wits
 
Date: 27 January 2018
 
Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium
 
Bidvest Wits came from behind to beat SuperSport United 4-1, at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday, completing the double over the CAF Confederation Cup finalists.
 
 
The game got off to a slow start with few chances at either end. Sfiso Hlanti was not too far away from scoring a long-range stunner in the 10th minute, but his low shot flew past the post.
 
It took a handball from Thulani Hlatshwayo inside his own box, to get the match flowing. Dean Furman stepped up to convert the ensuing penalty and hand Matsatsantsa a 22nd minute lead.
 
The Clever Boys played with increased intensity after conceding, but still struggled to create clear-cut opportunities. Lehlohonolo Majoro, had arguably their best of the first half in the 24th minute, but couldn’t direct his header on target after meeting Hlanti’s early cross.
 
Majoro was taken off at half-time and replaced by Gabadinho Mhango, but it was SuperSport who started the second half off looking freshest. Kingston Nkhatha’s fierce shot rattled the crossbar within the first minute.
 
However, Gavin Hunt’s substitution paid dividends in the 48th minute, when Mhango levelled the scores after meeting a cross from the left.
 
Five minutes later, Wits took the lead for the first time. James Keene met a Sifiso Myeni corner with his head and buried the ball in the net.
 
SuperSport made their first change of the game in the 60th minute, as Mogakolodi Ngele replaced Teboho Mokoena.
 
However, there was little any coach could have done to prevent the sort of goal scored by Daylon Claasen in the 64th minute. After being teed up by Mhango, he smashed the ball past Reyaad Pieterse from distance.
 
Wits then made an injury-enforced change, as Thabang Monare replaced Edwin Gyimah. Meanwhile, Sipho Mbule replaced Reneilwe Letsholonyane.
 
The visitors survived a minor scare in the 68th minute, when Aubrey Modiba hit the bar with what appeared to be a cross, rather than a shot.
 
Eric Tinkler threw his dice one last time five minutes later, bringing Siyabonga Nhlapo on for Richard Boateng.
 
However, Wits did their talking on the pitch and Hlatshwayo was able to make amends for his early handball, heading home their fourth goal from a Myeni cross.
 
Hunt’s last substitution saw Keene replaced by Thobani Mncwango.
 
By this stage, SuperSport looked completely deflated and it was only a matter of how many goals they would lose by. The Clever Boys continue their march up the table, while pressure mounts on Tinkler.
 
 
Here's how they lined up:
 
SuperSport: 1. Pieterse, 20. Kekana, 29. Gould, 25. Farmer, 2. Boateng (Nhlapo, 73’), 8. Furman, 6. Letsholonyane (Mbule, 67’), 28. Mokoena (Ngele, 60’), 13. Phala, 16. Modiba, 10. Nkhatha.
 
Wits: 16. Keet, 3. Hlatshwayo, 4. Khumalo, 12. Pule, 13. Hlanti, 14. Claasen, 23. Myeni, 25. Gyimah (Monare, 65’), 28. Keene (Mncwango, 90’), 45. Majoro (Mhango, 46’), 50. Weidlich.

Seemingly the chemistry between Majoro and Hunt is gradually diminishing
