Kenyan international close to securing another season in PSL after Relegation Play-offs

Kenyan international Brian Mandela and Maritzburg United are close to securing another season in the South African Premier Soccer League after a 2-0 win over Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila in a Relegation/Promotion Playoff on Wednesday 22nd May. 

Maritzburg had a dismal season that saw them finish 15th on the log hence being forced to a Relegation Play-off with National First Division sides Tshakuma Tsha Madzivhandila and Royal Eagles. After beating  Royal Eagles over the weekend Maritzburg are currently top on the three-team log with six points and could secure top-flight football with a win and if Madzivhandila beat Royal Eagles.

After starting from the bench Brian Mandela was introduced in the 32nd minute for Siyanda Xulu with both teams heading into the break goalless. Judas Moseamedi opened the scoring for Maritzburg in the 68th minute while Bongokuhle Hlongwane added a second eight minutes from time. Maritzburg next face Royal Eagles on Wednesday 29th May.
