Dikwena Victorious Against Arrows

Absa Premiership
 
Result: Golden Arrows 1-2 Platinum Stars
 
Date: 30 November 2013
 
Venue: King Zwelithini stadium
 
Goals from Lindokuhle Mbatha and Robert Ng'ambi gave Platinum Stars a 2-1 victory over Golden Arrows at the King Zwelithini Stadium in an ABSA Premiership match on Saturday evening. 
 
The win takes Dikwena up to third spot on the ABSA Premiership table on 19 points, 1 point ahead of Moroka Swallows, however Swallows have two games in hand.
 
Mamelodi Sundowns in second are one point ahead of Dikwena, but have only played nine games, and play on Sunday. Kaizer Chiefs jumped into top spot on 21 points from 11 games after their win on Saturday afternoon against Free State Stars.
 
The win was only Platinum Stars' second win away from home in the league this season, and will be a good confidence booster ahead of the Telkom Knockout Cup Final against Orlando Pirates next weekend.
 
With Bloemfontein Celtic and Tuks getting wins on the night, Golden Arrows now drop to 15th on the table.
 
Dikwena's Thabani Mthembu nearly netted the opener in the 22nd minute but the striker's header hit the upright. 
 
Amazulu took the lead after Jabulani Nene headed in a Bongi Ntuli cross in the 31st minute. 
 
Lindokuhle Mbatha leveled matters for the visitors in the 48th minute.
 
Mbatha scored directly from a free-kick to equalize, after Sibusiso Hadebe, who used to play for Arrows, was fouled just outside the area by Arrows' captain Thanduyise Khuboni.
 
Robert Ng'ambi put Stars ahead in the 56th minute, after climbing above Joseph Musonda and heading home from a Luvolwethu Mpeta cross.
 
Nkayiso Mlotshwa had a late chance to equalise for Golden Arrows but the midfielder failed to convert the chance, and Dikwena grabbed the win. 
 
How they started:
 
Golden Arrows: Siya Mngoma, Mzuvukile Tom, Gift Sithole, Dumisani Zwane, Joseph Musonda, Philani Shange, Vuyusile Ntombayithethi, Thanduyise Khuboni, Nkanyiso Cele, Jabulani Nene, Bongi Ntuli
 
Platinum Stars: Siyabonga Mpontshane, Thabiso Semenya, Tshepo Gumede, Benson Mhlongo, Luvolwethu Mpeta, Issa Sarr, Robert Ng'ambi, Solomon Mathe, Lindokuhle Mbatha, Sibusiso Hadebe, Thabani Mthembu
