NFD Round Up

In a crucial top-of-the-table clash, National First Division leaders Milano United overpowered African Warriors 3-2 at home, third-placed Chippa United lost their one hundred per cent record following a 2-2 draw with Jomo Cosmos, while United FC whipped Baroka FC 4-0.

Furthermore, Blackburn Rovers picked up their first win of the season, so did Thanda Royal Zulu but three games ended goalless.

Eezy My Kinnes now hold a three-point cushion thanks to strikes from Sibusiso Ntuli, Devan Saal (penalty) and Junior Theron.

The Chilli Boys suffered from a dubious penalty decision which allowed Cosmos to grab a late Peter Wadabwa equaliser. In fact, there were two penalties in the cold, wind-swept Philippi Stadium, one for each side. Just after the half-hour mark Petrus Ngebo slotted his spot kick home before Ezenkosi managed to draw level at 1-1 via Nhlakanipho Khumalo. Earlier, team captain Andile Mbenyane had opened the scoring for the Cape side.

United, playing exquisite possession football, completely overshadowed Sello Chokoe’s side in Rustenburg with goals from Marothi Diale, Joshua Sauls, Conrad Madolo and Edward Williams which moves the Vultures to within striking distance of the top two.

Blackburn Rovers’ coach Julius Dube had predicted his team would improve and they did very well to knock Sivutsa Stars off their pedestal, especially considering AmaRovers played with 10 men from as early as the 14th minute when Sihle Myeza saw red.

Sanele Mabaso grabbed the only goal of that game.

Amabhubhesi beat Vasco da Gama by the same 1-0 scoreline in Zululand with Tefo Xowana producing the goods.

Roses United only had themselves to blame for not picking up all three points in their 0-0 draw with FC Cape Town at the NNK Stadium. They were the better team in the first-half but failed to take advantage of good positions, while many home fans are still pondering why referee Shane Chuma disallowed what looked like a perfectly placed Darren Dicks header.

The other two games which ended without any goals were the clashes between Santos and Maluti FET College at Charles Mopeli, and Black Leopards’ home tie with Witbank Spurs.
