Arrows entered the pitch looking to get points to sit at number 3 of the log; to reserve its place in the CAF Confederation Cup next season.

Though Arrows is ahead with two games from Orlando Pirates; who are close on their heels; picking three points yeterday; put it in a position to play in the CAF; for the first time in its history.

Six minutes into the game; Gumede found the back of the net after a smooth pass on the left from Devine Lunga.
After the goal; Arrows continued to put pressure on Galaxy; in 32 minutes Mmodi; switched off the ball he was given by Ntsako Makhubela; outside the box; and slammed it; hitting the back of the net once more; Marlon Heugh; TS Galaxy Keeper; went flying in vain.
During the second round; Arrows continued to have their free reign but the first chance to a goal fell on Galaxy; Mxolisi Macuphu who had just entered the pitch; kicked a free kick; but Arrows Keeper; Sifiso Mlungwana blocked it.
During the 61st minute the back of the net was hit again when Makhubela dived for a ball curved by Nduduzo Sibiya; and put it inside with a header.
