During Tuesday night’s Absa Premiership match at the Orlando Stadium, Bucs technical team introduced Luvuyo Memela for Augustine Mulenga, Thabo ‘Section 10’ Qalinge for Abel Mabaso, as well as Thamsanqa Gabuza for Kudakwashe Mahachi, with all the substitutions taking place in the second half as Sredojevic and his team were in search of an equalising goal.

The equalising goal finally came through on the 80th minute from Memela, who cancelled Tshepo Rikhotso’s first half strike for Siwelele and the match finished 1-1. 

Sredojevic explained that Memela, Qalinge and Gabuza were introduced as attacking options as they were attempting to penetrate through Celtic’s solid defence on the night. 

“In the second half, we continued in the same fashion, dominating and looking to find a way of how to endanger the opponent’s goal. Chances came and we threw everything inside with Memela, Qalinge and Gabuza – available attacking options as a plan B case that we needed to get more chess results the way we have done. We scored that goal, equalising,” the coach told the media, in part, after the match.
