Arrows fire blanks against Baroka

Golden Arrows failed to get the better of Baroka FC after losing 2-1 in an Absa Premiership match at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Despite having the lion’s share of possession throughout the match the Durban-based side could not find any goals in the second half as they suffered their fourth loss of the league season.

Arrows started positively and created a scoring chance as early as the sixth minute, but Baroka’s goalkeeper Elvis Chipezeze made a great double save to deny both Nkanyiso Cele and then Lerato Lamola from close range.

Baroka suffered a bit of a set-back in the ninth minute when Matome Mabeba had to leave the field injured and was replaced by Collins Makgaka.

Three minutes later the Arrows took the lead when Lamola clinically headed home a pin-point cross from Cele, 1-0.

Just prior to the half hour mark the home side nearly doubled their lead when Siboniso Conco drove into the box, but he was superbly thwarted by Chipezeze in a one-on-one.

In the 35th minute Baroka managed to equalise, somewhat against the run of play, when Jemondre Dickens found space inside the box and calmly slotted past Nkosingiphile Gumede from 14-yards out to make it 1-1.

Neither side could add to the goal tally before the break and entered the half-time tunnel all-square.

Four minutes into the second half Baroka took the lead when defender Vusi Sibiya headed home a free-kick into the box from Mduduzi Mdantsane, 2-1.

Arrows tried to find their way back into the match and came close to levelling matters just after the hour mark when Lamola tried his luck from just inside the box which shaved the wrong side of the post.

The home side threw players forward in the final half hour of the match as Baroka seemed content to soak up the pressure and managed to hold on for only their second win of the league season.
