Bloem Celtic fight back to win

Cape Town - Chippa United suffered Telkom Knockout agony as they surrendered a one-goal lead to go down 2-1 to Bloemfontein Celtic at a rainy Philippi Stadium on Sunday.

The first half went the way of Phunya Sele Sele as the visiting team created several good goal-scoring opportunities but failed to score.

The first chance came after five minutes and saw Chippa 'keeper Abduraghmaan White making a great save to deny Letladi Madubanya.

In the 11th minute White found himself scampering across goal to try and keep out Ruzaigh Gamaldien's free kick, which dipped just over the bar.

More chances followed for the visiting team as Gamaldien went just over with a header and then towards the end of the half Lyle Lakay and Joel Mogorosi both squandered chances from within 10 yards of goal.

The home side showed improved commitment after the break and reaped the rewards on 60 minutes when Buyani Sali took advantage of a slip up in the Celtic defence between Patrick Tigynemb and Thabo Nthethe to put the ball into an empty net.

The Cape team appeared to be in command at that point as they continued to look dangerous on attack.

But Phunya Sele Sele managed to avoid conceding a second goal and started to mount their own attacks, eventually getting back on level terms when following a goalmouth scramble Dominic Isaacs crashed the ball into goal.

The Free State side could now smell victory and the comeback was completed when Jacky Motshegwa rifled home a superb a low drive.
