• Richards Bay 2-1 Royal Eagles

Ugandan winger Martin Kizza scored a late goal as his Royal Eagles side lost 2-1 to Richards Bay in the South African second tier (National First Division) on Sunday.

Kizza came off the bench for Phuthi Mohafe with 20 minutes left on the clock before heading home a consolation inside the final five minutes.

The former SC Villa and KCCA left winger nodded home a perfect delivery from Seyanego Maseloena Shakes to half the deficit.

Siyabonga Vilane and Lindokuhle Brian scored for Richards Bay in the 50th and 65th minute respectively.

Despite defeat, Kizza was delighted with his performance and hopes for more.

” It’s absurd that we lost but I am so happy for the performance i exhibited. This was my second goal in six games. It’s a good return for me as a player and I know very soon it will take me somewhere like in bigger teams and probably on the national team The Cranes.”

Kizza told,

The former SC Villa and KCCA winger has now scored two goals, assisted one and won the man of the match accolade once.

His first goal came against JDR Stars about three weeks ago and has subsequently been linked to a move to either Ajax Cape Town or Moloka Swallows.

Royal Eagles remain bottom of the National First Division table with 15 points after 24 games and will welcome University of Pretoria in their next game on Sunday 15th March.
