Platinum City Rovers Promoted

Platinum City Rovers have been promoted to the GladAfricaChampionship and will play Hungry Lions in the ABC Motsepe Playoffs Final, after winning a penalty shootout 3-0 against Glendene United.

Two former Bafana Bafana players sat on opposing benches, with Tlou Segolela leading City Rovers, while Bradley August was in charge of Glendene.

It was another hard-fought game, as has been the case throughout the playoffs, the first half producing no goals at the North West and Western Cape champions failed to get any shots on target in the opening 45.

The battle continued in the second half, with both sides continuing to threaten, but not making an impact in the final third.

And just like in the first semifinal, it was penalty shootout that would decide who would progress, as the match ended 0-0.

Two saves from Fortune Nkumane helped City Rovers triumph in the shootout, winning 3-0.

The final will be played on Saturday afternoon.
