Cosmos and Arrows in goalless draw

Newly promoted PSL clubs Golden Arrows and Jomo Cosmos played to a goalless draw in an Absa Premiership match at Olen Park on Sunday afternoon.

Jomo Cosmos’s goalkeeper Sherwyn Naicker made a great save off Nkanyiso Cele’s shot early on in the match and he continued to be well positioned throughout.

Khanyeza’s shot missed the target in the 28 minute, hitting the side net on the left.

In the 40th minute Zulu wasted a great opportunity of giving his side the lead as he was all alone inside the box, but shot wide.

Zikalala also made a great save just towards the end of the first half tipping away a cross that was delivered by Cosmos.

In the second half, Naicker continued with his form as he made a good save once again denying Arrows a lead.

In the 60th minute Arrows pushed forward in attack, but Mngomezulu made a clearance with a header.

Nine minutes later Zulu came close to finding the back of a net for Cosmos with a volley inside the box, but his shot missed the target.

Substitute Madonsela also pushed for a goal pulling a long range shot, but Zikalala was well positioned.

Both the teams tried to find the break with Cosmos attacking more, but the match finally ended in a goalless draw which saw the two teams sharing a point each.
