How TTM Survived Chippa Onslaught With 10 Men

Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila head coach Joel Masutha has revealed why it was not a train smash for his side to play with 10-men in their 1-1 draw against Chippa United.

Thabo Rakhale was the hero on the day after he managed to seal a point for the Limpopo outfit against his former side. TTM spent a large majority of the second half with 10 players, after former Orlando Pirates midfielder Meshack Maphangule received his second yellow card and was given his marching orders.

Despite being a man down, TTM showed great character to stay in the game and maintain the Chippa pressure as they managed to claim their fourth point out of possible six in their last two games.

After the match, coach Masutha revealed how being a man down was not much of a culture shock for Vhadau Vha Damani, who had been preparing for such situations in training.

“After going a man down, it showed the character that the boys have. They fought like hell. For me I can say it is a well-deserved point,” Masutha said speaking to the media

“Fortunately at training, the team that we feel we are going to start with, I always put the other team with one player extra, sometimes I even put two extra, so it forces them to get to know the shifting. When do we press, when do we keep a low or a medium block so I felt we managed it well and it was not something unusual to the players,” Masutha explained.
