Blues held to home draw against Robertsham

Kagisano Seforo celebrates after opening the scoring for the Blues.

The Blues were held to a 3-all draw in a goal-infested first half at a cold and windy Boksburg City Stadium as the home side blew a two-goal cushion twice in the match.

Melvin Kruger’s men opened the scoring inside the first 15 minutes from a move on the edge of Robertsham’s 18-area with slick one-touch passing which carved open the visitors’ defence before Kagisano Seforo poked the ball past the advancing keeper.

The home side doubled their lead moments later through captain Mpho Masemola, who buried a spot kick after Sibusiso Nkwanyane was fouled inside the box. The visitors pulled one back, however, and halved the deficit before Masemola restored his side’s two-goal advantage to complete his brace.

The entertainment continued in what was possibly the most thrilling half of Super League football this season as the visitors’ hopes were boosted by a penalty conversion to make it 3-2.

Robertsham completed the comeback just before the half-time break from a corner and earned a grip on the match they never let go of.

“In all fairness, I thought we deserved to win the game,” said Kruger.

“Only if we were more composed in front of goal, with at least four chances not being put away.

“Defensively we were more structured compared to our last game; but with the chances they missed as well in the latter minutes of the match, I can safely say a draw was a fair result.”

The Blues host Kempton on Saturday, May 27. Kick-off is at 3.30pm. – @SabeloBoksburg
