ON THE RAMPAGE: Debswana First Division South log leaders, VTM PIC MORERI SEJAKGOMO

Debswana First Division South log leaders, VTM put on an electrifying performance in front of a packed VTM arena yesterday against Mochudi Centre Chiefs to win 2-0 and increased their chances of gaining automatic promotion to the Premier League.

Head coach, Leutwetse Tshireletso was left an elated man after the game ended. "I am happy with the three points and another clean sheet. I am that person who likes playing good football," Tshireletso said. Asked about the presence of former Orlando Pirates stars, Brighton Mhlongo and Oupa Manyisa, Tshireletso was hesitant to speak about them. "I was not here when Mahumatsa (Rooi) was brought in and with Manyisa and Mhlongo I do not know anything," he said. The two South African players were amongst the spectators in Gamononyane yesterday. From the first whistle signaling the start of the game, VTM went all out looking for an early goal.

On the 6th minute, Thato Mogorosi for VTM nearly broke the deadlock with a powerful shot outside the box. With 15 minutes gone in the first half, Chiefs had not proved to be of any threat. VTM continued to probe for a goal. On the 18th minute, VTM missed another great chance after Chiefs goalkeeper, Tumisang Selolwane parried the ball onto the incoming Lucky Mokwena who headed wide. Just on the brink of halftime, VTM broke the deadlock courtesy of Ernest Tawazadza's header from Sfiso Myeni's free kick on the 39th minute.
