Dynamos make play-offs


They thrashed relegated Ga-Rankuwa United 6-0 at the Odi Stadium to give themselves an opportunity to make a quick return to the elite League.

Pat Malabela’s club are now set to join their Coastal Stream counterparts, Bay United, in a series of matches which also involves either Maritzburg United or FC AK as well as the side finishing 15th on the PSL table.

The exciting afternoon kicked off with the possibility of four clubs, Dynamos, Winners Park, African Warriors and Mpumalanga Black Aces, proceeding to the play-offs.

However, only Dynamos, who had the same number of points as Park and Warriors but a superior goal difference, showed their intent right from the start.

Joseph Mthombeni opened the scoring with an early penalty and by the end of the match he had netted a brace, making his goal-tally for the season ten, while Agyemang had a great hat-trick to his name. Mabicle scored the other goal.

Although Winners Park managed to grab two second-half goals against University of Pretoria, their efforts were insufficient to propel the club above Dynamos, whose six goals gave them a difference of + eight.

The game between Black Aces and FC AK ended in a 1-1 draw at the Atlantic Stadium, while Warriors and Witbank Spurs played out a goalless draw at Charles Mopeli.
