DStv Premiership 

Result: Royal AM 2-1 Maritzburg United 

Date: 03 October 2021 

Scene: Chatsworth Stadium 

Mzwanele Mahashe was reviewed instead of Thato Lingwati for the hosts while Maritzburg was helped by the arrival of Bongokuhle Hlongwane, with Lifa Hlongwane getting his initial beginning. 

The Team of Choice had an early possibility in the third moment to go on after Bongokuhle Hlongwane beat his marker on the byline and played a cut-back yet Brandon Theron directed his first-time strike wide. 

In any case, the subsequent refrain was enthusiastic, with Thwihli Thwahla taking the game to Maritzburg and the hosts rolled out an improvement in the 67th moment, as Mfundo Thikazi came on for Tebogo Potsane. 

Thikazi promptly affected the left wing for Royal, as his low risky cross was parried once more into play by goalkeeper Marcel Engelhardt yet the Maritzburg guard responded the fastest to clear risk. 

Victor Letsoalo ultimately broke the halt for John Maduka's charges 19 minutes before time with a header at the close to post after a cross by Tshidiso Monamodi. 

Ernst Middendorp rolled out a twofold improvement as of now, as Travis Graham supplanted Nazeer Allies in a strategic switch and Leletu Skelem came on for Lifa Hlongwane in another strategic change forthright. 

Joined were compressing Royal after that and Kewuti discovered the equalizer for Maritzburg as of now with a cross-cum-shot from the left wing that circled over Engelhardt and cruised into the rear of the net. 

With the game apparently set out toward a draw, Tshepo Rikhotso took care of business for Thwihli Thwahla with a tap-in from short proximity in stopage time after Engelhardt tipped Thikazi's free-kick into the post.
