Hello and welcome to our coverage of tonight's DStv Premiership clash between Golden Arrows and SuperSport United, live from the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium.
1'
KICK OFF: We're underway!
2'
There's an early stoppage already after two players collide and clash heads. They're receiving treatment.
3'
Chance! Early chance for SuperSport as Lungu finds himself in space in the box. His shot at goal is deflected out for the first corner.
5'
Chance! Another good opportunity for SuperSport. This time Mokoena plays a great long ball over the top for Lungu in the box. Lungu's downward header finds Grobler but his snapshot is well saved by Mlungwana.
7'
Arrows launch a quick counter attack. Quick counter from us but the resulting shot is poor and Williams claims easily. Nice end to end stuff early on here.
11'
Arrows do well to win the ball back in midfield. It falls to Parusnath who plays a long ball up the near side intended for Lunga, but there's just too much on it and it goes out for a throw.
14'
There's some neat interplay around SuperSport's box between Mtshali, Makhubela and Gumede but the visitors manage to clear the danger. Arrows' forwards need to do better in the final third to get the shot away.
16'
SuperSport win a set-piece. Webber takes and his delivery is swung to the back post. It picks out Grobler but his header across the face of goal is dealt with and cleared.
19'
Lungu gets hacked down from behind and requires treatment. He's off on the sidelines but is set to return shortly. Free-kick to SuperSport in shooting range...
20'
Chance! Mokoena steps up to take the resulting free-kick but his effort is blazed over the bar.
23'
Defending! Daniels produces a great sliding tackle on the right-wing to end an Arrows attack.
25'
COOLING BREAK: The referee has signaled for the first-half cooling break.
27'
Play has resumed following a brief cooling break.
30'
Parusnath plays it to Makhubela who picks out Gumede out wide. His cross is well claimed by Williams who came way off his line to collect that one.
33'
Chance! Williams with a great save! Makhubela is through on goal and tries slotting into the corner but Williams does well to block the effort.
35'
Ten minutes of normal time to go until the break. Can either side find an opener before half time?
37'
GOAL! Commentator's curse? Mathiane with a leaping header to get on the end of a corner and give Arrows the lead. It's no less than they deserve following a period of intense pressure. Arrows 1-0 SuperSport.
40'
SuperSport look intent on finding an immediate equaliser but their attacking move is cut short by Arrows' defence. Good response to going behind though.
43'
Corner for SuperSport. Webber plays it short to Mahachi from the corner. He swings it in at the back post but it's collected by Mlungwana.
45'
There will be three minutes of added time.
46'
SECOND HALF: We're back underway for the second 45!
48'
Both sides have made a more timid start to the second half, happy to keep the play in the midfield in the opening minutes.
48'
HALF TIME: Golden Arrows take a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to a headed goal from their captain. It's been an exciting half with positive, attacking play from both sides. More of the same in the second half please!
49'
Booking: Confirmation that Mahachi received a yellow card for that challenge for his challenge on Sibisi.
49'
There's a brief stoppage so that Sibisi can receive medical attention. It just looks to be a knock and he should be okay to continue.
51'
M. Gumede finds space on the near side, cuts inside and does well to beat his marker but his shot is blocked by Williams.
55'
Hit and hope. Webber plays in a deep ball from right-wing but Mlungwana is off his line and collects.
58'
Substitution: SuperSport make their first change. Rayners is on to replace Webber, who had some good moments in the first half.
62'
Arrows are temporarily a man down as Lunga is receiving treatment off the pitch. He'll be okay to continue though. It seems like Arrows players have been in the wars this evening.
64'
Chance! Mokoena whips in a great ball to Gabuza who gets a head to it at the back post. The ball is recycled back in by Rayners but it's just too long for Grobler to reach it.
65'
Arrows concede a free-kick on the edge of the box. Mokoena takes but his delivery is punched out by Mlungwana for a corner. Good spell this for the visitors.
68'
Substitution: The home side make a double change. Ndwandwe and Nkombelo are on in place of Mtshali and Lunga.
69'
GOAL! Immediate impact! It's the substitute Ndwandwe who has been on just a few seconds who calmly slots the ball past Williams to double Arrows' lead.
70'
COOLING BREAK: The referee has signaled for the second-half water break.
72'
We're back underway following a brief water break.
74'
Chance wasted. SuperSport win a free-kick in a promising crossing position after Mlungwana handled outside the area. The free-kick is played short and comes to nothing.
77'
SuperSport win another free-kick. Mokoena's delivery is flicked out for a corner, which Rayners will take. It's poor and is cleared at the front post.
80'
10 minutes left in this encounter and it looks like Arrows will be heading for their first league win of the campaign. Can they hold on for all three points?
84'
Booking: There's been a flurry of free-kicks given away by Arrows and the latest one earns a yellow card as Rayners is brought down just outside the box.
85'
Five minutes left of normal time for SuperSport to at least pull one back. Time is running out.
87'
GOAL! Mokoena's free-kick takes a deflection and goes in! SuperSport have pulled one back but is there enough time for an equaliser now? 2-1!
90'
There will be four minutes of added time.
92'
GOAL! Any hopes of a SuperSport comeback have been quickly squashed. SuperSport committed too many men forward in hopes of an equaliser and were made to pay! Makhubela breaks away and finds himself 1v1 and fires past Williams. 3-1. That's game over.
94'
FULL TIME: It's all over at the Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium and Arrows claim all three points following a solid 3-1 win against SuperSport United.
