Coach Sakala changed things up and gave the armband to ex Tembisa Classic Colleen Zimba while recalling Kurt Pienaar and Philani Khwela to the starting XL. He also gave a maiden start to the excellent prospect, Bradley Cross who plays for the Aces U17 Academy.
TSC have not won a game all season and it seemed their game plan was to grind out a draw and collect a draw at a hot Esiqongweni Sports Grounds.
Aces controlled and dominated the stats and territory but found it hard to crack the stubborn TSC defence.
Sandile Hadebe who came off the bench, finally broke the offside trap and scored a late winner in the 87th minute to notch up Aces’ third win of the season.
Aces are next up against Vaal Professionals at the Alex Stadium next Saturday.
