Observer on Saturday - - Front Page -

was an­other sad story for Mi­das yet again as they sur­ren­dered a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to Young Buf­faloes yes­ter­day at Somhlolo.

Hardly a week af­ter los­ing in the same fash­ion to Malanti chiefs, City failed to main­tain their lead and Buf­faloes proved to be tac­ti­cally bet­ter than them which re­sulted in the re­sult of the game chang­ing in favour of the army out­fit.

The Mba­bane out­fit took the lead three min­utes from the break through Thando Sha­bangu who con­verted from the penalty spot af­ter Buf­faloes


Sde­fender Samkelo ‘Rio’ Lushaba han­dled the ball in­side the box.

Buf­faloes' Phiwa Dlamini had an early scor­ing chance but was de­nied by the­cross bar in the first, minute this was fol­lowed by a poor shot eight min­utes later af­ter cap­i­tal­is­ing from a loose ball in­side the box The striker how­ever made amends and even­tu­ally found the back of the net in the 68th minute, curl­ing the ball to beat Machawe af­ter a de­fen­sive er­ror by ‘City’.

Sandile Gamedze net­ted the sec­ond for Buf­faloes with a fine header, a shot from Wandile ‘Skosh’ Sha­bangu 11 min­utes from time to make the score 2-1.

The re­sult puts City at the bot­tom of the log with other MTN Pre­mier league games on today.
