Cruel loss for Chippa

James Okwuosa (Gallo)
Johannesburg - Despite enjoying the better scoring chances on the night visitors Chippa United lost via a James Okwuosa own goal in the dying seconds of optional time as University of Pretoria ran out winners in an end to end Absa Premiership match.
 
Nigerian defender Okwuosa had been excellent all night long, bottling up Mame Niang who was cautioned and substituted late in the game.
 
But then, rather cruelly, Okwuosa turned the ball into his own net following a Thabo Mosadi cross right at the end of optional time.
 
Chippa coach Farouk Abrahams was understandably livid after the game, having seen his team waste numerous scoring chances only to end up losing in such a fashion.
 
The first attempt on goal arrived after twelve minutes when Washington Arubi did enough to parry away a stinging Diego Brown free kick.
 
Then in the 27th minute Ayanda Lubelo skied his shot way over the crossbar for the home side.
 
In the 37th minute, Chippa missed another really good chance when Qalanto got into space, but rushed his shot and volleyed wide of the post.
 
Chippa’s best chance of the first half came when Lubelo turned his marker and hammered a left footed shot at goal, but Kassaly Douada saved well.
 
Okwuosa then made a telling slide tackle on Niang in the 57th minute before Chippa substitute Mkhanyisel Siwahla put a volley wide of goal after 72 minutes as it seemed like the visitors may score.
 
But then came the moment where Okwuosa could only direct Mosadi’s cross into his own net.
