Mushekwi, Pelembe lead Sundowns to victory

Mamelodi Sundowns narrowly edged out visiting Bloemfontein Celtic 2-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in an ABSA Premier Soccer League match on Tuesday night to move to the top of the log with 14 points, only due to a superior goal difference to Supersport United.

The Tshwane outfit needed a very late goal from Mozambican international Elias "Dominguez" Pelembe to seal victory and collect maximum points at home.

It was the Free Staters who went ahead, scoring in the 26th minute when Eric Mathoho connected Thokozani Mshengu cross with a header.

Before Celtic's opener, Katlego Mphela had a chance to put Sundowns in the lead, but missed the chance after Musa Nyatama had brilliantly set him up.

Mushekwi, installed back into the line-up after having fallen down the pecking order with Johan Neeskens interestingly preferring Mabhuti Khenyeza ahead of last season's PSL second top goal scorer, then put Downs on level terms on 55 minutes.

The chesting down of a cross was majestic by Mushekwi, before firing a shot past Celtic keeper Patrick Tignyemb.

Then followed a glut of missed chances with Mushekwi the main culprit for Downs.

Pelembe then won it for Downs on the death.
