This has seen us push into 7th position on the log. The team is determined to collect as many points possible in the last three games. Using the games as preparation for the Shield competition later in the season. Black Leopards have not proven to be a strong team in the competition, having only won one game so far. This sees them sitting at the bottom of the log. However, they are a determined team and home game advantage could work to their favour.

Another second half fight back from the boys saw us rescue a point tonight against Stellenbosch FC at Princess Magogo Stadium. The first 45 minutes of play saw us unsettled and not displaying the brand of soccer that we normally dish out. We allowed the visitors to take advantage of their possession and they pushed up and put our goal under pressure at every opportunity given to them. In the 23rd minute, a well delivered corner from Basadien found Adams in the box who headed in to give the visitors the lead, a position that they held comfortably until the break. The second 45 saw us get into more of a rhythm of play and the the boys started looking like the unit that have been playing in the last couple of games.
Lidoda Duvha have had a mixed bag of results over their last 5 games. They lost 2-1 at home in their last outing against Swallows FC, drew against TTM and Kaizer Chiefs, lost 1-0 to Bloem Celtic and collected full points against Maritzburg United at home in November. They are a team who can produce some great play and unsettle any team on the day. Although they are battling to find points, they often open the scoring in their games in the first quarter of the game. They have confident players up front in Anas and Karuru and are able to cause upsets on the right day.

With the majority of the Diski Challenge under our belts, it is evident that the team will not be able to retain our title this season. Although a determined team have played well over the season, they have not managed to finish off well in a number of games, resulting in a number of draws over the season. This has affected the points haul and not given us the edge we would have liked to have had. Some form has been found in the later part of the season though, with two wins in our last three games.
The opponent started pressing high and we needed the right levels of arrogance to impose our game model. The opponent had a slight edge and started putting us under pressure which we finally succumbed to when they scored the equalizer on the 70th minute. The subs we made did not give us the necessary injection instead they struggled to cope with the tempo of the match. There are areas we need to work more on defensively and among many are defending higher than too deep, dealing with diagonal balls to fullbacks so as to avoid crosses.
If you’re in the area, get to the stadium and show your support. We would greatly appreciate it. Tickets are sold at Ticketpro outlets, Edgar’s, Jet, Spar. R40 adults, R15 kids U12 The team gave a fairly good performance and played decent football after a day long trip from Durban to Venda. The match was played at night, under rain, typical of Thohoyandou, it was still hot but much better than what it would have been during the day. We had a good first half with lots of clear cut chances to take the lead in the match but we failed. The opponent kept pushing and piling pressure but we showed lots of maturity in defending. As a result the opponent did not create too many opportunities. Of the chances we had, we could immediately remember the Venter ball that hit the upright, Parusnath had his ball parried by the keeper, Sibiya’s shot going over the bar, Lamola had an easy tap in to make and many more which occurred in the second half. We simply lacked composure in front of Goals.

A confident squad has performed well under the guidance of Steve Komphela since the beginning of the year and are currently on a three game winning streak, one they will want to continue on our home ground on Sunday afternoon. We have looked good up front, with the younger team members playing an important role in our game strategy. With a lot of positive work being done both offensively and defensively on the field, it has given the techincal staff an opportunity to asses the games and then substitute accordingly in order to secure the wins. AmaZulu will be aiming for a double Derby win.
