Four straight wins for Sekhukhune

Sekhukhune United beat Swallows FC 1-0 at Peter Mokaba Stadium thanks to a second half goal from Siphosakhe Ntiya-Ntiya.

The win means that Brendon Truter’s side has now bagged four straight wins in a row.

With the first half ending goalless, it was Ntiya-Ntiya’s long range strike midway through the second half which gave Babina Noko a well-deserved three points.

“I thought we played very well in the first half and the only thing that was missing was a goal,” said Truter after the match.

“We created chances in the first half that we could have tapped away but we didn’t. Being 0-0 at half time was not a true reflection of the game, we knew what they were going to do.

They minimized the spaces that we wanted to use in order to play and we started getting anxious and started kicking the ball longer than usual.

But in the second half, we anticipated that Ernst Middendorp might change Swallows’ formation but when he didn’t, we managed to get into half spaces in front of the defenders.

That gave them problems. We pushed our fullbacks a lit bit higher and Ntiyantiya managed to pick up the second ball and scored a great goal.”

With 13 matches left to play in this season, Sekhukhune United are now fourth on the log – 19 points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.
