African Confederations cup 3rd Round Qualifying

View attachment 140865

CR Beloiuzdad 2-4 Black Leopards
(Matsau x2, Netshidvhe x2)


A fantastic victory for the lads in my first game in charge as Daniel Matsau and Netshidvhe both bagged a brace as we ran out 4-2 winners. We were massive underdogs and i hope we can secure a victory in the second leg to qualify for the group stage.


African Confederations cup 3rd Round Qualifying 2nd Leg


Black Leopards 3-0 CR Beloiuzdad
(Matsau, Ramulondi x2)

What a result for my boys again as we ensure qualification through to the Group Stage of this tournament. Matsau scored a nice goal and a brace from Ramulondi ensured the victory which will be a massive boost to the team.

Super Eight Cup Quarter Final

Black Leopards 1-2 Super Sport United
(Matsau)
(Montsi Red Card 63rd min)

A good performance from the lads tonight as we were predicted to be on the end of a heavy defeat. We went 2 nil down and i thought that we was out but we pulled one back but just couldn’t score another.

African Confederations Cup group Stage


Dynamo Hares 1-1 Black Leopards
(Mponda)
(Lubanzadio sent off 79th minute)

A brilliant result for the boys in the first group game against the Zimbawewein champions. We were predicted to get beaten fairly easily by Dynamo but we proved that we aren’t a pushover and got the result that we deserved in the end and came away with a point.

First Division cup 1st round
Black Leopards 1–3African Warriors
(Matsau)

We are out of the cup at the first hurdle as never even turned up. We didn’t play the best and we was made to pay as we lost 3-1. Matsau scored at 2-1 but we conceded straight away.

First Division Inland
Black Leopards 1-1 Dynamo
(OG)

I will take this as it was the first league game in charge. We went 1 nil down and we hit the post and the crossbar. We got very lucky with our goal but we will take the point and look to push on and gain promotion.

First Division Inland
Witbank Spurs 0-4 Black Leopards
(Masango, Bulu, Mponda, Matsau)

A brilliant result for the boys away from home as a fine attacking display saw us score 4 goals against Spurs. This pouts us top for the time being.

African Confederations Cup Group Stage


Al-Merreikh 2-1 Black Leopards
(Ramulondi)

A good performance from the team as we lost. This tournament is all about the revenue as we knew at the start we didn’t stand a chance of qualifying. We kept fighting but lost 2-1 but I’m happy with the team.

First Division Inland
Jomo Cosmos 2-1 Black Leopards
(Ramulondi)

Another defeat in charge of the club. We just aren’t getting any luck anymore as we had 2 clear goals chalked off due to an apparent offside.

African Confederations Cup Group Stage


Black Leopards 5-1 Dynamos Harare
(Matsau, Mponda x2, OG, Kondowe)

A simply faultless performance from my team. Matsau scored early on and Mponda scored 2 headers from corners as we ripped apart Dynamos. We were simply brilliant and now still have a chance of qualifying.

First Division Inland
Black Leopards 6-2 Batau
(Ramalatso Pen, Matsau x3, Mponda x2)

Another good performance from the boys as we score 6. That means this is 11 in 2. We was 6 nil up but we had to resort to 10 men as November was injured and we had no subs. However we are pleased with the win and 3 points.

First Division Inland
Black Leopards 2-0 United FC
(Ramulondi, Mponda)

This victory gives us 3 consecutive wins and puts us up to 3rd place. Mponda is turning into a striker like this as the CB has scored 5 goals in 3 games from corners.

First Division Inland
Tuks 4–4 Black Leopards
(Ramulondi x2, Matsau, November)

I’m not sure whether to be happy with this result or not to be honest. We went 1 up they drew level. We went 2-1 up they drew level. We went 3-2 up they drew level. We then went 4-3 down and drew level late on.

Player of the Month - Mponda

Mponda was simply brilliant this month as he was solid in defence and scored 5 goals for a centre half.

African Confedration Cup​


View attachment 140929

Ashanti Gold 2-0 Black Leopards

A good performance from my team. We were predicted by the media and many pundits to get hammered but we thought well and kept it to 1 nil till the 90th min. We hit the post and the bar but I’m pleased with the performance.

First Division Inland
Dynamos 2-0 Black Leopards

First defeat in a few games for my boys against our closest rivals. However we aim to bounce back respectively and get our title hopes back on track.

Black Leopards 0-4 Al-Merriekh

A disappointing result in the last game of the group. I am pleased with how the group ended up as we finished in 3rd place in what looked like we would come last. We hit the post but didn’t really create any clearer cut chances.

View attachment 140933

First Division Inland
Black Leopards 4-3 Witbank Spurs
(Mponda, Ramulondi x2, Matsau)

A game we should have really won more comfortably but i shouldn’t complain as we got 3 points. We was leading twice in the game but they went 3-2 up into HT. After an aggressive team talk we came out all guns blazing and won the game

View attachment 140934

First Division Inland
F.C.A.K 3-3 Black Leopards
(November, Matsau, Obada)

A fairly good result as we was losing in this game. Obada scored his first goal for the club and November scored his second and this leaves us in 3rd position.
