Giyani - Polokwane City striker Sipho Jembula shared his delights after his team managed to reclaim their Absa Premiership status following their victory over Limpopo rivals Black Leopards on Sunday. Rise and Shine defeated Lidoda Duvha 2-1 in an entertaining and thrilling match played at the Giyani Stadium. Jembula and defender Vukile Mngqibisa were on target for Boebie Solomons’s team, while Siphelele Ntshangase scored a consolation goal for Leopards. In a post-match interview, the former Platinum Stars forward said team-work was their secret weapon to overcome Kostadin Papic’s team who expected them to play a defensive style of football.“They expected us to park the buses at the back,” said Jembula.“We played very well in the first half.“But we allowed them to come at us more in the second half.“The good thing is that we didn’t give up our lead.“The coach (Solomons) told us to stick to the game plan.“Our game-plan was to catch them on a counter-attack and it worked.“We played as a team, that’s why we managed to retain our PSL status.”City became the second PSL side to retain their status after battling out in the NFD relegation/promotion playoffs. Mpumalanga Black Aces also won the mini-league in the 2008/09 season.
