Ngcongca through, Mahlangu out of UEL



Anele Ngcongca and his Genk side have sealed their place in the knockout stages of the Uefa Europa League with a 1-0 success against Videoton in Hungary on Thursday evening.

Ngcongca recovered from flu in time to take his place at centre-back and help his side to the win which guarantees that they will finish in the top two in Group G.

It is highly likely that they will take top spot and that would make them one of the seeded teams in the next round.

May Mahlangu’s hopes of reaching the knockout stages came to an end as they were beaten 3-1 at home by Spanish La Liga Levante.

Mahlangu played, but had little impact on the game. He will have one final competitive fixture this year before potentially joining up with Gordon Igesund’s 2013 Africa Cup of Nations squad when Helsingborg travel to Dutch side FC Twente on December 6.

Victory there and they may still avoid the wooden spoon in Group L.

South African-born Dani Amos was not in action as the home match between his Israeli side Ironi Kiryat Shmona and Spanish side Athletic Bilbao was postponed due to the security worries in that country.
