Ramagalela Seals Victory On Leopards Return

Dstv Premiership

Result: Black Leopards 1-0 Maritzburg United

Date: 21 November 2020

Venue: Thohoyandou Stadium

Black Leopards picked up their first points of the DStv Premiership season with a 1-0 victory over Maritzburg United at Thohoyandou Stadium on Saturday.

Former Highlands Park striker Rodney Ramagalela was given his start on his return to Leopards, who had parted ways with head coach Patrick Aussems.

Sebastian Mwange and Fares Hachi made their debuts for Maritzburg while Rayaain Ismail and Sibusiso Hlubi were suspended for the Team of Choice and Tebogo Makobela was serving a one-match ban for Lidoda Duvha.

Former Lesley Manyathela Golden Boot Award winner Rodney Ramagalela was the matchwinner on the day, popping up in the 57th minute to net the eventual winner after being assisted by Lifa Hlongwane.

It is Leopards' first win this season and they will now look to build on this result when the new coach takes over after assistant coach Morgan Shivambu took charge of the team.

Leopards have now won the last three encounters between the sides, having done the double over Maritzburg last season.

Meanwhile, Maritzburg are rock-bottom and without any points as the struggle continues for the Team of Choice and their boss Eric Tinkler.

Here's how they lined up:

Leopards: 22. Ndlovu, 43. Sampson, 13. Zulu, 2. Gyimah, 24. Douhadj, 5. Aboubakar, 6. Mthethwa, 36. Thutlwa, 17. Hlongwane, 16. Ramagalela, 8. Onongbu.

Subs: 32. Muleka, 3. Ndou, 26. Nthatheni, 25. Mokoena, 12. Masalesa, 28. Matsimbi, 9. Adrianarimanana, 31. Ndlovu, 39. Mashoene.

Maritzburg: 1. Mwange, 4. Allie, 19. Hachi, 3. Sanoka, 23. De Reuck, 15. Ntshangase, 8. Buchanan, 17. Claasen, 11. Tlolane, 7. Meza.

Subs: 27. Barr, 5. Morgan, 10. Kutumela, 21. Hlongwane, 18. Sandows, 26. Shandu, 14. Bongo Mbourou.
