Four Top Teams Drop Points, Cosmos Narrow Gap To Two Points

National First Division Wrap

By Soccer Laduma - Dec 17, 2017 05:49 PM
Four of the top five National First Division teams, including log leaders, Highlands Park, University of Pretoria, Mbombela United and Stellenbosch dropped crucial points, however, Jomo Cosmos took full advantage by beating Mthatha Bucks 2-1.
 
In addition, the two struggling KZN outfits, Richards Bay FC and Royal Eagles both managed to record important wins, while Real Kings leapfrogged AmaTuks following their good 3-2 away success.
 
Ezenkosi, with goals from Tebogo Makobela and Tebogo Tlolane, moved within two points of the Lions of the North, who could only manage a goalless draw at home against Cape Town All Stars.
 
Kings, thanks to Ace Bhengu and Nkosingiphile Phewa’s brace, are now in fourth position, level with Mbombela, after Ashwin Sutton’s side also played to a 0-0 stalemate in their clash with Uthongathi FC.
 
Despite missing a penalty, Siyavutha came from behind to outwit Steve Barker’s side 3-1 as Quentin Debouto, Khethukuthula Zwane and Patrick Mubayiwa did the damage.
 
Eagles finally got their show on the road by whipping relegation-threatened Ubuntu Cape Town 4-2 at the Harry Gwala Stadium, where Mazwi Mncube (2), Nkosivumile Zulu and Dumisani Tau gave the fans something to cheer about.
 
There were also scenes of jubilation in Richards Bay when they beat Black Leopards 2-1, with Kulegani Madondo and Gregory Roelf the heroes.
 
Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC and Super Eagles played out a thrilling 3-3 draw in Limpopo as the home side fought to eventually level matters via David Mathebula, Themba Ndlovu and Teboho Kalake.
 
With the first round now completed, 6 points separate the top 5, while it’s anybody’s guess as to which two clubs will go down.

Ezenkosi Mara jomo why he don't like to give someone he would trust to coach his team because he is suffering to come easy to PSL but he get easy relegation maybe Cosmos can last longer than before look Baroka is doing good now they learn from their first mistakes and they add their technical team with an experience person Doc Khumalo they are hot in the league I can't wait to see them win the silverware because they did good signing the like of sphelele ntshangase
