AmaZulu draw 0-0 with SuperSport United at King Zwelithini Stadium

Posted: 20 February 2013 Time: 21:48

AmaZulu moved off the bottom of the League standings after a 1-1 draw against SuperSport United at the King Zwelithini Stadium on Wednesday night.

Chances were few and far between, but the visitors almost capitalised from a defensive mistake in the eighth minute when Carlington Nyadombo lost possession inside his penalty area, but Tapuwa Kapini pulled off a double save to deny both Sameegh Doutie and Simba Sithole.

Usuthu then had their own chances at the other end with Njabulo Manqana sending his free-kick over the crossbar in the 17th minute, while Ayanda Dlamini had a penalty shout waved away two minutes later.

Most of the play was concentrated in the midfield as SuperSport played a high pressing game, but Thkozani Mshengu did force Ronwen Williams to punch away a cross with bodies lurking inside the six-yard box.

The second half saw more in the way of goalmouth action, but Thamsanqa Teyise sent his free-kick crashing against the upright in the 52nd minute, before Bradley Grobler headed just wide at the other end a minute later.

Kapini came to his side’s rescue again in the 56th minute, coming off his line to deny Sithole a clear view of goal, before parrying a stinger from Franklin Cale a minute later to keep his side in the game.

Goodman Dlamini should have done better in the 61st minute when a cross from Ayanda Dlamini found him unmarked just inside the box, but somehow he sent his shot wide of the post, while Sithole drew another decent stop from Kapini a minute later.

Cale came close to stealing maximum points for his side in the 87th minute from a dead-ball situation, but his thunderous free-kick cannoned off the crossbar.

Gavin Hunt - Gavin Hunt..please you are definately running out of ideas.
Khulu can u please bring someone with fresh ideas.
SSUFC is going down very slow from the much respected club to an ordinary club like those who contest to be in top eight.

The coach found SSUFC with solid but not fancy team and he chopped and changed the Tsietsi Magoas and the like but now we are an ordinary team....specialising with draws..
