Dennis Masina came off the bench to score the winning goal for MP Black Aces as they beat Chippa United 1-0 in their National First Division play-off match at the Themba Senamela Stadium on Saturday.
Within seconds of being on Masina found the back of the net with literally his first touch. Following the match Masina said he knew he would score when he came on.
“It was my first touch when I came on. It was a good cross from Enrico (Adolph), I had a good first touch and then I scored,” said Masina
“When I came in I told myself I was going to score and luckily when the ball came to me I was on my own and I scored.”
It has been an up and down season for Masina who has been in and out of the team due to injury, but the Aces players says he is just happy to be playing again.
“I am very happy with the win and my season,” added Masina.
“My biggest problem was that I was injured for a very long time and this was my first game coming from injury, so I am happy for the goal and the team that we won.”
