As predicted, the Thembisa franchise came out all guns blazing in their quest to avoid the drop, and lady luck was on their side when virtually with the refs whistle about to be blown for full time, they scored.
The result was very disappointing for the Gold City Giants who lost their 3rd game on the trot but it was our youngsters who shined and that was the only positive from an Aces view.
For Tembisa SC, the win moved them up to 14th just above Lerumo, who remarkably held the league leaders, Maccabi FC to a 1-all draw.
Maccabi’s draw has now really opened the door to JDR Stars who beat a plucky Dube Continentals 2-1 and Stars now trail by 1-point with a game in hand. African All Stars and especially Dondol, are still in with a shout and with only four games left, its too much for the rest of the chasing pack.
Aces next match will be away to Vaal Professionals at the George Thabe Stadium next Saturday.
