10 man Spurs claim maximum points in Athlone

The Urban Warriors got off to a flying start in Athlone, with Clayton Daniels getting his name on the scoresheet after seven minutes played. 

After a slight scramble in the Masia penalty area, the veteran found himself in the right place and tapped the ball in from close range.

Coach Shaun Bartlett’s charges continued to press on as the game progressed and controlled possession during the early exchanges of the tie. 

In what was a golden opportunity to double the lead, Spurs were awarded a penalty in the 25th minute. However, the La Masia goalkeeper did well to save Ashley Cupido’s effort from the spot. 

In an unfortunate situation, Morne Nel received his marching orders after a rash challenge on one of the opposition players, as the Urban Warriors were reduced to 10 men in the 26th minute.  

Despite the series of setbacks, Cupido made up for his penalty miss by getting his name on the scoresheet in the 37th minute as the Urban Warriors ended the half on a strong note.

In the second half, Spurs continued to impose themselves on the tie with positive possession play. With 10 minutes to go, Moosa joined in on the fun and scored the third goal of the game.

After a solid display by the Urban Warriors at home, coach Bartlett and his troops got back to winning ways following a 3-1 victory at the Athlone Stadium.
