Spurs defensive masterclass grabs point against SSU

Cape Town Spurs defended well in a closely contested match against SuperSport United in the DStv Premiership at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Friday evening. The result saw the two teams share the points in Polokwane.

Gadiel Kamagi was shown red in the 16th minute following a sliding tackle on Shandre Campbell when he was the last man. A free kick in a dangerous position was awarded to SuperSport, but Lyle Lakay’s shot was well saved by Spurs keeper Neil Boshoff.

Later on, Katlego Maphathe got the chance to open the scoring on the overlap but SuperSport’s Ricardo Goss was alert and saved the effort. The first half was evenly balanced despite the Urban Warriors being a man down and both teams ended it all square with no goals.

Matsantsantsa turned up the heat in the last 20 minutes as they kept pushing to find the breakthrough but Spurs were highly alert and held their ground well, keeping their opposition from scoring.

Ashley Cupido was also close, with an on target free kick outside the box but Goss saved the day once again. SuperSport gave it their all and even almost got the goal, but a clearance off the line with less than 10 minutes of normal time to go ensured Spurs did not fall behind.

The result sees Cape Town Spurs pick up one more point in the DStv Premiership and with two games remaining for the team, it will be vital for the Urban Warriors to win both. The next fixture will be played against Golden Arrows, on 18 May.
