Imbabala held by Dynamos 15/12/04
Bush Bucks and Dynamos played out to an entertaining draw in a Castle Premiership match at a rainy Absa Stadium in East London on Wednesday night.

The match marked a return to the team where he first made a name for himself as a player for Dynamos coach Lefa Quosha, who played 99 games for Imbabala and scored 13 goals in that time.

Despite enjoying more possession and as well as a higher number of goal scoring opportunities, the hosts found themselves 2-1 down at half time.

Bucks got off to a bright start and in the 8th minute they took the lead when Mhlonishwa Mbambo chased down a long ball and bravely challenged Dynamos keeper Abram Khwenenyane to reach the ball first and header it into an empty net.

Three minutes later some great interplay amongst the Imbababala midfielders saw Mandla Nxumalo have a chance to score, but his shot was well wide of the target.

Dynamos found the equaling goal in the 32nd minute when Ntokozo Sikhakhane threaded through a brilliant through ball for red-hot striker Sandile Ndlovu, who stabbed the ball past Tampungu Dikete for his seventh goal of the season.

Then, just on the stroke of half time, the team from the North took the lead when Ndlovu laid the ball into the path of Nicholas Mkhabela, who slammed the ball into the back of the net, giving Dikete no chance.

Bucks soon got themselves back on level terms when, in the 50th minute, Nxumalo picked up the ball in the midfield and went on a storming run before scoring with a low shot across the Dynamos keeper.

In the 69th minute Bucks' Zimbabwean striker Agent Sawu forced a good save out of Khenenyane when he fired in a lows shot at the near post.

Three minutes later Dikete kept the East London side in the game when he pulled of an outstanding save from a powerful Ndlovu header.

The Dynamos striker wasted a great opportunity just seconds later when he burst through the home defence and then miscued his parting shot.

In the 75th minute both teams were reduced to 10-men after Khwenenyane and Bucks midfielder Marvin Klaasen were given their marching orders for an off-the-ball altercation which followed a Bucks corner.

Bucks almost grabbed a late winner when they earned a corner and Bulelani Matroos connected well with a header, which was cleared off the goal-line by the visitor's defence.

At the end of the game a draw was a fair reflection of the game.
