TTM deny Royal Eagles victory


Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) maintained their unbeaten record by holding Royal Eagles to a 2-2 draw in their National First Division League match at the Chatsworth Stadium in Durban on Saturday.

Although Royal Eagles were leading 2-0 at one stage, Vhadau Vha Damani refused to throw in the towel. They regrouped from behind, initiating some dangerous moves from the middle of the park.

Their endless efforts did not go unrewarded, as they managed to pull one back through Ononogbu Onedichakhi late in the game. Tshepo “Tower” Makgoga scored the equalizer in the dying minutes of the game to deny the home side a victory.

TTM are shining on top of the log with eight points accumulated from four outings. They are sharing the same number of points with University of Pretoria and Mbombela United.

Jomo Cosmos registered their first victory of the season last weekend. They narrowly beat the newly promoted Maccabi FC 1-0 at the Volkswagen Dobsonville Stadium.

Cosmos moved five steps up on the league log. They are now lying in the 10th position. Ajax Cape Town are still battling to come to terms with the result for their match against TS Sporting, when they lost 0-1 at the Kabokweni Stadium in Nelspruit.

The University of Pretoria fought hard to earn three points at the expense of Witbank Spurs, whom they beat 2-1 at the Puma Rugby Stadium in Emalahleni.

Although they appointed a new coach, Mr Daniel Malesela, last week, TS Galaxy are still to collect the maximum points in a league match. They shared the spoils with Ubuntu Cape Town, following their 1-1 draw.

Stellenboch FC played to a goalless draw with Mbombela United at the Cape Town Stadium. Richards Bay FC lost 0-1 to Cape Umoya United.
