Good afternoon and welcome to the Chatsworth Stadium for our live coverage of this DSTV Premiership clash between between Royal AM and TS Galaxy FC.
Kick-Off! We are underway here in Chatsworth on a cool cloudy afternoon.
A slow start from both teams as they try to find their feet.
GOAL, ROYAL AM, MONAMODI! 1-0: What a mess from TS Galaxy after a lack of communication between two defenders and the keeper! The keeper tried his best but the back-pass from Marks Munyai was poor and left him exposed. Tshidiso Monamodi just needed to tap it in before the keeper got there.
RED CARD, TS GALAXY, MUNYAI! 1-0: Marks Munyai's afternoon goes from bad to worse after a really bad foul on Tshidiso Monamodi. He gets a straight red!.
It's going to be a long afternoon for TS Galaxy from here. This is not the start Da Gama would have hoped for.
The Galaxy keeper Van Der Linde tries to milk as many seconds as he can everytime the ball arrives in his area for him to gather. Time management!
Levy Mashiane is now guilty of a foul on Lindokuhle Mbatha for a promising Galaxy free-kick.
That free-kick is cleared but then Galaxy secure a corner. Can they make this pay and get back into the game?
The corner is floated in towards the back-post and is easily cleared. What a waste!
Potsane darts between two Galaxy defenders and makes his way into the area before being dispossesed.
Pogiso Sanoka is fouled in his own half by Victor Letsoalo for a relieving Galaxy free-kick.
Lekay tries to find Macuphu with a nice tap-on but the keeper wins the race for the ball.
GOAL, ROYAL AM, MASHIANE! 2-0: Levy Mashiane makes no mistake after running into a gap following a superb offload from Potsane. The keeper commited far too early and was exposed again. BRILLIANT and well executed!
It's not looking good for Galaxy. They have had a few chances but they have wasted most of it. They can ill afford to waste the few opportunities that come their way.
The ball flies behind for a Royals corner after a hard shot is deflected off Igor Makitan.
The corner is floated in and is poor. They clear it easily.
A promising statistic for TS Galaxy is that they have had 56% of the possession in the last 10 minutes.
Mlungisi Mbunjana is fouled in his own half by Victor Letsoalo. Relief again for Galaxy.
GOAL, ROYAL AM, LETSOALO! 3-0: Well that did not last long and brilliant again from Royals. Potsane finds Zukile Mkhize, who sends the final pass to Victor Letsoalo and the rest is history!
HALF-TIME: ROYAL AM 3-0 TS GALAXY FC. After two minutes of time added on for stoppages we head to the sheds. Galaxy have struggled while Royals have looked good. A long second half awaits the visitors.
Kick-Off! We are back underway in the second half.
SUBSTITUTION: Two changes at the break for TS Galaxy. Aubaas replaces Mahlangu and Seedat is on for Lekay.
Great work by the Galaxy keeper Van der Linde, who tries a long-ball for Masilakhe Phohlongo but the flag is up for OFFSIDE!
Good interplay between Brooks and Masilakhe Phohlongo. It ends up with a good SAVE by the keeper after the shot from Ethan Brooks. Promising!
Victor Letsoalo is down and we have a stoppage after a foul on him by Pogiso Sanoka.
SUBSTITUTION: A change for Royal AM. Mereko replaces Lingwati after what appears to be an injury related change.
YELLOW! Seedat is booked for a vindictive dangerous tackle. He is lucky he did not get RED for that.
It's getting feisty out there! Mxolisi Macuphu is now fouled by Rikhotso and Galaxy have a promising free-kick but it is cleared.
SUBSTITUTION: A change now for TS Galaxy and Mokete Mogaila replaces Masilakhe Phohlongo.
POST and then SAVED! Van der Ross is open on goal for Royals and he hits the post. Van der Linde is up again quickly to SAVE the rebound attempt. Great work!
PENALTY TO TS GALAXY after a handball by Mereko.
GOAL, TS GALAXY, SANOKA! 3-1: Sanoka slides it straight down the middle after the keeper chosses right.
NO GOAL, TS GALAXY! Machupu's goal is not allowed due to OFFSIDE! However replays suugests that the offside call was wrong!
YELLOW! Tshidiso Monamodi is booked after a cynical foul.
YELLOW! Sanoka is the latest in the book after a really silly foul. There was no danger there.
GOAL, ROYAL AM, MAHLASELA! 4-1: Kabelo Mahlasela scores after a Galaxi free-kick in their own half is messed up. POOR back passing again! An absolute pile driver means it's the final nail in the coffin for TS Galaxy.
Depending on the result of the next game between Marumo Gallants and Kaizer Chiefs, TS Galaxy may find themselves at the bottom of the table.
We are now into the last three minutes added on for stoppages.
GOAL, TS GALAXY, MACHUPU! 4-2: What a great goal and a superb header but a little too late after a brilliant move.
FULL-TIME: ROYAL AM 4-2 TS GALAXY FC. It is an afternoon that Galaxy would rather forget. They will feel wronged by a goal that was not allowed due to an error by the assistant referee but their own actions in the first 10 minutes of the game let them down. Would that goal have changed things? Who knows! Thank you for joining us.
