Nhlapo wins award

SuperSport United defender Siyabonga Nhlapo won Man of the Match award following a superb performance against Kaizer Chiefs on the weekend.

United beat Absa Premiership leaders 1-0 at the Mbombela Stadium on Saturday night in front of a capacity crowd.

This was a nail-biting match and fans from the both teams witnessed quality football on the night.

Nhlapo had a memorable game as he ensured that the Chiefs attack got monitored till the end of the last minute of the game.

Although Chiefs tried to go all out to level matters towards the dying minutes of the game, Matsatsantsa defence made sure to hold them at bay.

“It’s up to us to fight our own battles and win our own games,” said the Matsatsantsa defender Nhlapo.  

Meanwhile Matsatsantsa welcome Maritzburg United in a midweek league encounter on Wednesday night. The match is scheduled for Lucas Moripe Stadium and kick off is at 19:30.
