SuperSport United brushed aside Richards Bay by 2-0 in a DStv premiership clash at the New Peter Mokaba Stadium, Polokwane on Saturday afternoon.

The visitors were able to counterattack Matsatsantsa in the eighth minute however Kegan Johannes made a huge block to prevent a shot to keep the score leveled at 0-0.


It was an afternoon to remember for Shandre Campbell as the youngster showed a lot of potential. The 18-year-old delivered a cross in the box only for Gamphani Lungu to send his effort wide in the 15th minute.

Campbell combined well with Bradley Grobler in the 18th minute with some nice touches, however, it was Magoola who collected it comfortably.

Campbell also came close in the 21st minute after making a solo run and unfortunately, the ball went wide.

Striker Bradley Grobler got substituted in the 37th minute after he sustained an injury. The injury looked not bad as the player walked himself out of the pitch. However the extension of his injury was not known at that time. He was replaced by a new signing Etiosa Ighodaro.

The second half got underway and the Spartans continued to press Richards Bay. They were eventually rewarded as the new marksman Terrance Dzvukamanja opened the scoring in the 55th minute. This is after a great pass also from Shandre Campbell in the box.

Matsatsantsa doubled their lead through another new signing in Etiosa Ighodaro in the 71st minute of the game.

Richards Bay never threatened the host and did not look like a team that can score even a goal. The match ended 2-0 in favour of Matsatsantsa a Pitori and started their campaign on a positive note.
