Township Rollers moved closer to securing a place in the semi finals of the Mascom Top 8 after coming from behind to down Police XI 4-2 in a pulsating encounter at the National Stadium on Saturday night.

The Jungle Kings raced to an early lead, grabbing two goals inside the first 25 minutes. Tapiwa Gadibolae, on loan from Rollers, capitalised on a defensive mistake to punish his parent club. Betsho Pius beat Kabelo Dambe with a screamer from the edge of the box to double the visitors’ lead in the 25th minute. Rollers responded with unrelenting pressure and their efforts were rewarded when Maano Ditshupo halved the deficit with a header in the 44th minute. Rollers introduced Jerome Ramatlhakwana and Sekhana Koko for Carl Finnigan and Otlantshekela Mooketsi at the start of the first half. In the 56th minute, Ditshupo got his brace when he slotted a Joel Mogorosi pass at the far post. Segolame Boy teed up Ramatlhakwana with a low cross, then the striker tapped in to give Rollers the lead in the 71st minute.

Six minutes later, the hosts increased their lead through Mogorosi’s header. The attacker rose the highest to power in Koko’s cross. Substitute Motsholetsi Sikele broke through the Police XI defence and came face-to-face with the goalkeeper, but was denied by the upright in the last minute of the game.
