NFD : Milano go second with Leopards win
Milano United’s superb run of form continued with a 2-1 win over Black Leopards at the Blue Downs Stadium on Friday afternoon.
The Cape side took a 1-0 lead into the break after a goal from winger Brandon Theron.
Lidoda Duvha drew level in the second half via a penalty by Roggert Nyundu. But the Kinnes were determined to take maximum points, and achieved this through Morne Davids’ winner.
The win moved Milano above Witbank Spurs on goal difference and into second spot, although this could change on the weekend when Spurs and Highlands Park play.
Leopards confirmed Papic departure during the week
This after Kosta Papic decided to part ways with the Limpopo team earlier this week.
The Serbian left with the club in ninth position on the NFD standings, having so far failed to match their feats of the previous two seasons, when they earned a spot in the play-offs in two consecutive years.
Lidoda Duvha spokesman Berry Ramunenyiwa confirmed the news to PSL.co.za, stating that an amicable agreement was reached after Papic felt he had not delivered on his mandate.
“It came as a shock to us, but the club has accepted his decision. We felt that he had been doing good work at Leopards, but had just unfortunately not been able to get the results.
“Papic felt that he could not reach the targets the club had set for him, and the targets which he had set himself, and decided it best to leave.
“We will be on the lookout for a new coach as soon as possible. But right now Joel Masutha is in charge, because our immediate priority is Friday’s game against Milano United in Cape Town. We are confident we will find the right man for the job and will release a statement as soon as we do,” said Ramunenyiwa
The action continues on the weekend as follows:
Sunday, March 20, 2016
15:30 Moroka Swallows v Cape Town All Stars Dobsonville Stadium
15:30 Royal Eagles v Highlands Park Harry Gwala Stadium
