Real Kings are slowly but surely making their way to the top of the GladAfrica Championship standings.
While the leaders Ajax Cape Town lost 2-1 against Steenburg United and second-placed Uthongathi were beaten 3-1 away at Free State Stars, Kings came from a goal down to beat TS Galaxy 2-1 in Mpumalanga.
“It was a very tough game,” Kings coach Joel Masutha told FARPost.
“We started slow and couldn’t cope with their movements and ball rotation. They scored a well worked goal. Thereafter we started to play our game and we equalised.
“The second half was an end-to-end affair. We did a smash and grab by scoring right at the death after a quick counter attack,” added.
Kings are now just five points behind Ajax, who have 32.
