Mpumalanga Black Aces coach Clive Barker gave his boys freedom of expression and they never abused it. They were tactical discipline with high tempo game of good flow of the ball coupled with excellent positional play and high work rate.
Black Aces is now playing a real Mzansi diski with good flair and array of eye pleasing skills. Black Aces is playing the game of Golden Arrows four seasons ago.
Orlando Pirates couldn’t play it’s normal game due to Black Aces high tempo game. The engine room of Oupa Manyisa and Thandani Ntshumahelo was locked by one man Zandile Zuke who had brilliant game. The presence of Zuke in the middle belittled Ace- Ntshumahelo combo.
Congratulations to Clive Barker for deploying perfect game plan preventing Pirates to play its normal game.
