SuperSport Blow Another Chance To Close-In On Sundowns

DStv Premiership

Result: SuperSport United 0-0 TS Galaxy

Date: 05 March 2021

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium

SuperSport United missed another chance to move level on points with Mamelodi Sundowns after dropping points against ten-man TS Galaxy on Friday evening.

Jamie Webber, Evans Rusike and Iqraam Rayners were recalled for the home side while the Rockets handed starst to Galaxy Khayelihle Shozi and David Matlala.

After a bright start from both sides, Shozi came the closest to breaking the deadlock for the Rockets in the 23rd minute with a powerful strike at the near post that produced a superb save from goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.

Shozi came close again for the visitors five minutes later after combining with Lindokuhle Mbatha at the near post but his threatening effort was brilliantly saved by Williams.

Teboho Mokoena had a wonderful chance to break the deadlock for Kaitano Tembo's charges just before the break after receiving a through ball from Webber but he dragged his shot just wide, with the sides heading to the break goalless.

The game continued to open up coming from the break as Mbatha had a great chance for Galaxy ten minutes into the second stanza but once again, he was unable to find a way past Williams.

Owen Da Gama's troops were reduced to ten men in the last 13 minutes after Sphiwe Mahlangu was shown a straight red card for a reckless challenge on Sipho Mbule barely seven minutes after coming on.

Despite the numerical disadvantage, Galaxy did well to frustrate Kaitano Tembo's charges who remain second, two points behind Sundowns and just two points ahead of third-placed Orlando Pirates.
