TEN-MAN GALAXY HOLD SUPERSPORT TO GOALLESS DRAW

SuperSport United were held to a 0-0 draw by TS Galaxy in a 2020-21 DStv Premiership match at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Friday.

Galaxy played the final quarter of the match with 10-men following Sphiwe Mahlangu’s sending off but were able to hold on for a point. The result extended Galaxy’s unbeaten run to seven matches and cemented their position in eighth spot on the league standings.

SuperSport are now winless in four games and remain two points behind leaders Mamelodi Sundowns who have played four games less.

The Rockets looked a confident side from the onset and created the first noteworthy chances of the match through Khayelihle Shozi in the 22nd and 27th minute respectively, but on both occasions he was denied by Ronwen Williams from an acute angle.

SuperSport finally conjured a chance of their own on the cusp of halftime as Teboho Mokoena timed his late run into the box to perfection, but Marlon Heugh did just about enough to put the midfielder off.

Galaxy started the second-half as they did the first and after weaving his way into a good area Lindokuhle Mbatha let fly at goal, but Williams was well positioned to deny the veteran winger a fourth goal in as many matches.

The visitors task was made a lot harder in the 77th minute as Sphiwe Mahlangu received his marching orders six minutes after emerging from the bench for a dangerous tackle on Sipho Mbule.

Matsatsantsa were unable to capitalise on their numerical advantage; in the end a share of the spoils seemed a fair result.
