KwaMashu - Musa Bilankulu scored the only goal of the game as Golden Arrows defeated Jomo Cosmos in an Absa Premiership clash at Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday night.

Ezenkosi could have sealed safety from possible relegation had they won, but this result leaves them in danger of dropping back into the red zone should they lose their final match of the season against fellow strugglers Maritzburg United on May 21.

There was no shortage of efforts at goal from both sides in the first half, though goalkeepers Max Mbaeva and Sherwyn Naicker were mostly untroubled due to some wayward shooting from the attacking players on show.

Arrows generally saw more of the ball and looked the more fluid team in terms of passing, though Cosmos’ more direct style of play saw them create opportunities for the likes of Linda Mntambo, Mxolisi Machupu and Matsilele Sono, but they were unable to take advantage.

Ezenkosi were punished for some slack defending in injury time at the end of the first half, with a failure to properly clear from corner kick resulting in Musa Bilankulu scoring a superb, acrobatic volley to leave it 1-0 in favour of the hosts at half time.

Cosmos needed some inspiration in the second half and coach Jomo Sono turned to substitutes Denver Mukamba and Mician Mhone to try and spark his team’s attack into life, but Arrows remained in control of the game and were able to see out the victory.
