FS Stars back to winning ways

Rustenburg - Free State Stars returned to winning ways in the Absa Premiership on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Platinum Stars at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg.
 
The only goal of the game came late in the first half as Togolese international Dove Wome completed a quick counter-attack from the visitors to stun the home fans.
 
The result is a blow for the home side’s top eight aspirations, but they had their chances to get something from the game.
 
Stars had an effort from Patrick Malokase rightfully chalked-off for offside after 15 minutes, the Orlando Pirates loanee having been behind the last defender from Henrico Botes’ initial shot that hit the post and rebounded back to him.
 
Edward Manqele then had two excellent chances to score, first missing a one-on-one with Jackson Mabokgwane when the goalkeeper saved, and then failing to steer his effort on target after being picked out at the back post.
 
The visitors were ahead on 38 minutes though as Katlego Mashego went on a rampaging run down the left, before picking out an unmarked Wome and the midfielder supplied an expert finish past a helpless Mabokgwane.
 
It might have been 2-0 in the second half when Manqele played in Mzikayise Mashaba and his shot crashed into the post from a tight angle with Mabokgwane static.
 
Robert Ng’ambi had a great chance to equalise for the home side when he was picked out in the box, but he put his free-header well wide with Mweene stranded.
 
The final chance of the game fell to Ntsikelelo Nyauza, whose thunderbolt from 30-yards looked to be heading into the top-corner before Mweene stuck out a hand to make an excellent save.
 
Platinum Stars will now travel to AmaZulu for their next fixture on April 28, while the Free Staters host Maritzburg United on the same day.
