United’s win could be in vain

2019-05-08 06:01

MARITZBURG United’s sudden improvement and burst in morale in recent games resulting in a 3-1 win over Supersport United on Saturday may be all in vain as they still remain last in the league, given the other bottom teams got good results over the weekend.

Fortune Makaringe received the man of the match award after his stellar performance, creating all three goals for the Team of Choice.

The first goal was scored by Mohau Mokate after he headed home from a cross by Makaringe, which was delivered on Mokate’s head leaving no room for error.

Supersport were back in with a shout two minutes after the first half as Aubrey Modiba equalised with a superb left footed strike from the edge of the box.

Makaringe then provided two more assists for United as super-sub Judas Moseamedi came off the bench to score two goals, leaving the home support in a frenzy.

This win, however, still leaves coach Eric Tinkler’s team at the bottom of the table after favourable results for the other relegation threatened teams.

Maritzburg will have to win their last game in Polokwane this weekend and know that even a win could end up not being enough as they depend on results from other games to seal their fate on whether they will remain in the PSL or not.
