A Chippa United second choice goalkeeper is proving to be key in the team’s resurgence since taking over from Patrick Tignyemb.
Following some goalkeeping mistakes earlier in the season, Chippa coach Norman Mapeza has replaced Tignyemb in his starting line-up with Veli Mothwa.
The Chilli Boys won 2-0 against AmaZulu in Mothwa’s first match, beat Black Leopards 3-0 in the second match, while the third match against Baroka FC this past weekend ended in a 0-0 draw.
With three clean sheets in three matches, Mothwa will be expected to keep his place in Mapeza’s team for their upcoming fixture against Cape Town City at Athlone Stadium next Saturday.
Chippa’s last match of the year will be at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on December 21, against SuperSport United.
