Ajax earn vital Usuthu win

Posted: 29 April 2011 Time: 22:07

Ajax Cape Town have taken a three-point lead at the top of the Absa Premiership table after a hard-fought 2-1 victory over AmaZulu at a cold and windy Athlone Stadium on Friday night.

Ayanda Dlamini had given Usuthu an early lead, but the Urban Warriors kept their title dreams alive thanks to strikes from Khama Billiat and Clayton Daniels.

AmaZulu were ahead inside two minutes after some sloppy play from the home side. The Ajax players expected the ball to go out of play on the right and stood still.

But when it did not, Tangeni Shipahu collected the ball and crossed for Goodman Dlamini, whose shot was blocked by Hans Vonk, who could not stop Ayanda Dlamini from scoring his 10th goal in all competitions this season.

It took a while for the Urban Warriors to get into the game, but after a quarter of an hour they began to find their passing range and it was no surprise when they were level on the half-hour mark.

Billiat fed Serero and the Ajax playmaker showed good skill to work a crossing position, from where he put the ball in the six-yard box, and perfectly onto the head of the onrushing Billiat.

The home side were ahead eight minutes into the second period when Daniels scored as he side-footed home a volley from a corner.

Ajax were left to play the final 10 minutes or so with 10 men after Granwald Scott was unable to continue through injury and coach Foippe de Haan had already used all three of his subs.

That opened the door for Usuthu and they were almost level when a thunderous 40-yard drive from Bukasa Kasonga beat Vonk, but not the crossbar and it cannoned away to safety.

As usual Ajax will be on top of the log for only 24 hours until Pirates play tomorrow then they will go back to their rightful position number 2 where they will finish. This time is their last chance to occupy that spot as the games will be played simultaneously from next week..!

As we speak Ajax Cape Town are leading in the PSL table standings.
Others challenging for top position are still to fight for their points on Saturday and Sunday. Well done to Ajax Cape Town for collecting maximun points against Amazulu even though, their overall play was not convincing. Thus shows that they are championship material, even when they play bad they still win a game.

Thanks again to Ajax for holding the ambrela for us as Pirates anyway this is your last time for holding that ambrela, after today you can take a seat and the let the good leaders take it from here. After this weekend no team will have any advantage over the other because all the games will be played simutaneously.

Lets all watch will Pirates celebrates for taking the league in Orlando Stadium against Arrows thank you very much.

Ajax Ajax baba mina I am happy soccer is starting to spread around the country. This orders well for the future of the PSL. Amazulu are work in progress in a season or 2 they will a house hold name the players they have there and if they keep them together something will happen. We are tired of Gauteng calling the shots especially Soweto they think there r bigger than anyone.

it is painfull to those who have already called themselves champions,really it is a bitter pill to swallow.they will now beg PURITY FC to beat AJAX.i said it long time ago that if sundowns don't win this one then let Ajax do it to avoid excessive noise from so called rats and purity fc.THANK YOU.
