Bafana United Football Club came out victorious in their derby match against rivals Firefighters Football Club at Mandela Park Stadium in Khayelitsha on Saturday 6 July. Bafana won 6-0.

The two teams play in the Mandela Park Local Football Association.

The wet weather could not deter Bafana as they set their sights on finishing the season in a good position on the log.

Bafana coach Kuna Skiti said their opponents did not start the game with their full squad.

“Not all of their players pitched for the start of the game which meant it was not competitive at the start,” he said.

However, he said it became better as it went on and that they are happy with the three points.

He said they are competing in the league even though it is still the first round.

Skiti said they will soon start preparing for their next game, but added that they are not be planning something out of the ordinary.
