Wednesday’s DSTV Premiership results
There were wins for Golden Arrows, Bloemfontein Celtic and Orlando Pirates in Wednesday’s DSTV Premiership fixtures.
Black Leopards 1-1 Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila
Points were shared as Leopards and TTM played to a 1-1 draw in the Venda derby at the Thohoyandou Stadium.
Rodrick Kabwe gave Leopards the lead just before halftime, scoring from the penalty spot after Tebogo Makobela was brought down in the box by Thabo Rakhale.
Rhulani Manzini equalised for TTM with a low free kick in the 69th minute.
AmaZulu 0-2 Golden Arrows
It was a well deserved victory for Golden Arrows in the Durban derby, a good 2-0 win over AmaZulu at Kings Park Stadium.
AmaZulu’s newly appointed Head Coach Benni McCarthy watched from the stands, coming to grips with what lies ahead for him, as interim coach Allan Freese led the team on the day.
Nduduzo Sibiya gave Arrows the lead on the stroke of halftime, beating Veli Mothwa from the penalty spot, after a foul was awarded for a handball in the box.
Five minutes into the second half Velemseni Ndwandwe made it two for Arrows, after a swift counter attack, Sibiya played Ndwandwe in, who ran into the box and made no mistake.
Arrows pick up their second win of the season and remain unbeaten in seven games.
Bloemfontein Celtic 2-0 Baroka
Bloemfontein Celtic grabbed a much needed win when they beat Baroka 2-0.
With just less than ten minutes to go, substitute Tumelo Mangweni grabbed a goal for Siwelele.
Another substitute (and another Tumelo), Tumelo Njoti, grabbed a second for Celtic in stoppage time, for a win that sees Celtic climb up to 11th spot.
Orlando Pirates 1-0 Chippa United
Orlando Pirates beat Chippa United 1-0 at the Orlando Stadium, thanks to a late goal from Fortune Makaringe.
Just before halftime Sandile Mthethwa was shown a red card for a foul on Deon Hotto, meaning Chippa would play the entire second half a man down.
It was a valiant effort from Chippa, who despite being down to ten, fought hard for a share of the spoils, but just couldn’t hang on.
With five minutes to go Makaringe grabbed the winner, after being setup by substitute Linda Mntambo.
