Abafana Bes’thende shocked many on Wednesday night when they hammered MTN8 defending champions SuperSport by a resounding scoreline of 3-1 at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium with coach Mandla Ncikazi saying that is proud of his men’s efforts.
Arrows skipper Trevor Mathiane opened the scoring while the other two goals came from Velemseni Ndwandwe and Ntsako Makhubela.
“We take nothing away from SuperSport when you play Bloemfontic Celtic, SuperSport and Baroka it is like somebody has planned all the tough matches for us but I am just proud of the team,” said Ncikazi.
The KwaZulu Natal outfit is expected to face Baroka and Kaizer Chiefs in their next two DStv Premiership matches.
“We stick to our technical plan and ability to come out when we have the ball, take the chances that come our way,” added Ncikazi.
Ncikazi Steve was Komphela’s assistant coach at Arrows for two seasons and now leads the team alongside former striker Mabhudi Khenyeza.
