Maluleka Hands SuperSport Win

Absa Premiership

Full Time: University of Pretoria 0-1 SuperSport United

Date: 28 August 2013

Venue:  Tuks Stadium


A single first half goal from George Maluleka was enough to hand SuperSport United a 1-0 win over the University of Pretoria in an Absa Premiership match at the Tuks Stadium on Wednesday night.

The home side started like a house on fire and were bitterly unlucky not to take the lead as early as the fourth minute when Mpho Maruping met a cross from the left and saw his eight-yard header crash against the crossbar.

Two minutes later and Maruping had another attempt at goal, but this time he saw Ronwen Williams produce a superb save as he tipped his 22-yard pile-driver over the bar.

Slowly SuperSport worked their way into the game and began controlling the possession stakes, and they made their dominance pay in the 26th minute.

George Maluleka showed his pace to latch onto a good through ball and proceeded to drive into the right side of the box before firing the ball past Washington Arubi at his near post from an acute angle from 14-yards out, 1-0.

Tuks almost equalised three minutes later, but Williams was on hand again, this time denying Obidiah Tarumbwa from only a couple yards out with a reflex save.

The half ended 1-0 in favour of SuperSport.

The second 45 saw both sides really unable to create any decent chances on goal as both teams squandered possession in the middle of the park due to some wasteful passing.

In the 59th minute Tuks did manage to fashion an opening, but Tarumbwa fired just over the crossbar from 20-yards out.

Chances were certainly few and far between, and the next attempt on goal came in the 79th minute as substitute ThaboMosadi let rip with a low shot from 22-yards out, but Williams produce another good save.

The match ended 1-0 in favour of SuperSport who picked up their second league win of the season and top the standings.
