Welcome to live coverage of Stellenbosch vs SuperSport United. Kickoff in the PSL is 5pm today at the Danie Craven Stadium.
Kickoff! 0-0. We are underway in Stellenbosch.
An early corner for Stellenbosch but the cross from Mendieta can't find any of the big lads who have come forward from the back.
WIDE from Lungu who has a shot for the visitors but the Zambia forward strikes off target.
A first corner for SuperSport today. Webber takes it but it gets cleared by Kwinika for Stellies. The home team break but Du Preez runs the ball out of play.
Blocks! Rayners has two strikes in a row against his old club from the Waiswa cross. Both attempts don't get through with defenders standing their ground.
SAVE by Williams. Stellies corner delivered by Mendieta and the header attempt by Dimgba is saved.
Freekick to Stellenbosch now but well wide from Du Preez there. A wasted opening.
A very tense match here with hardly any goalmouth action to write home about thus far. It might take a corner or a freekick to win this one.
These teams have both been without a win for a while. Confidence looking low. Van Wyk is doing well in midfield on his full debut as he is fouled by Waiswa.
CHANCE! Webber delivers a freekick into the box and youngster Johannes heads it off target. That could or should have been the first goal in this match.
Rayners doing well here versus his former team. Wins a corner, Webber swings it in and it's cleared easily.
Stellenbosch not carrying enough threat here today. SuperSport handling the speedy running of Du Preez.
SAVE by Stellies' goalie Stephens. Webber won a freekick then took it himself. Good effort which draws a save at least.
Wide from Webber now as Rayners sets it up. Both are causing problems in the Stellenbosch heat.
Stellenbosch have a glimmer of hope now. Du Preez swings at a shot after a deflection but Williams saves down low. It call came from a sublime dribble by Van Wyk.
Another cross from Waiswa but too heavy for Grobler. The latter wants better service, no wonder his goal have dried up.
Half time! 0-0. A cagey match with hardly any chances. Both sides can do better in the second stanza.
Two minutes added time to be played.
The second is underway! 0-0.
Crossbar! Rayners puts his effort against the woodwork but a foul was called in the approach so it would not have counted.
SuperSport are putting on most of the pressure today. Grobler sends Rayners away to earn a corner. Stephens catches the cross from Webber.
Yellow card: Rasebotja carded for foul on Jabaar.
Subs for Stellies: Isaacs and Khunyedi on, Van Wyk and Dimgba off.
SuperSport win a throw on the right. Taken long by Nhlapo which Rayners flick on. Stephens claims in goal before Grobler can get it.
CHANCE! Isaacs send Du Preez racing away and he just about gets to it first. Williams smothers the shot though, good piece of goalkeeping from the South Africa captain.
Wide from Webber who spots Stephens lurking off his line. The shot lands wide of the target though for SuperSport United.
Sub for SuperSport: Gabuza on, Waiswa off.
Penalty appeal. Stellenbosch attack, a flowing move involving Isaacs and Letsoenyo. Du Preez and wants a handball given. Referee Olani Kwinda waves play on.
Isaacs again involved with Du Preez. A shot is set for for Mendieta but it misses the target. Need to work goalkeeper there at least.
Lungu wins the corner which Webber swings into the 18 yard area. Ditlhokwe rises high but sends it wide of the goal for the away team.
Two strikers are now up front for SuperSport. Gabuza sets up his partner Grobler for a goal attempt but he can't keep his shot down. Sums up the match, that.
Sub for SuperSport: Donn on, Rasebotja off.
Du Preez takes a corner from the left. Sinkala rises high to attack it but he fouls Williams in the process.
Sub for Stellies: Du Preez off, Johannes on. Defender for a striker, seems they are satisfied with a one point haul.
WIDE from Webber again. Another shot from distance which fails to trouble the scorers. That looked a bit overly hopeful.
SAVE by Stephens now at the near post from a Lungu shot. SuperSport think they can win this. No wonder Stellies are adding more defenders.
Sub for Stellies now: Moseamedi on, Mendieta goes off. Quite afternoon for the midfield creative player.
Full time! After a match with hardly any real good chances it looked destined to be a stalemate. Grobler had other ideas and scored in injury time. No wonder he won the Golden Boot last season. Stellenbosch look dejected and it's now 6 matches without a win. Full time: Stellenbosch 0-1 SuperSport.
+1 GOAL! SUPERSPORT! GROBLER! 0-1. The pressure finally counts for the away side as Grobler steers a low shot past Stephens. Heartbreaking that is for Stellies. Stellenbosch FC 0-1 SuperSport United.
Three minutes shown on the board by the fourth official. Not much time for a winner.
