Premiership match reports: Ndulula helps Usuthu edge Dube Birds

Posted: 14 September 2013 Time: 18:48

AmaZulu edged Moroka Swallows 1-0 on Saturday night, with Bongani Ndulula's first-half goal proving decisive at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The result, Usuthu's first home win of the campaign, lifts the Durban outfit to seven points and joint-top of the table with SuperSport United, who boast a superior goal difference and will visit Mpumalanga Black Aces on Sunday.

The Dube Birds remain fifth in the standings with seven points from four games, two points behind the pace-setting duo following their first League loss of the season.

Ndulula, who scored the winner against his former side Orlando Pirates in their season opener, should have netted three minutes in but he fired wide from the middle of the box.

Edward Manqele, on loan at Swallows from Mamelodi Sundowns, was guilty of a similarly bad miss soon after at the other end, as he failed to hit the target in a one-on-one situation.

AmaZulu goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini came to his side's rescue in the 18th minute, as he acrobatically denied Dikgang Mabalane after 'Terminator' was released by Bafana Bafana playmaker Lerato Chabangu.

Four minutes later Ndulula slotted the ball home in the area after being teed up by Nkosinathi Mthiyane.

Ndulula, his club's player of the month for August, had a great chance to get a second goal in the 38th minute but he put his effort wide after being put through on goal by Kulegani Madondo.

The Dube Birds threatened just before the break, but Kapini did well to scamper away Mabalane's cross, with Siyabonga Nomvethe lurking in the box.

The second half was desperately short of goal-mouth action, with neither side showing much promise on attack.

Man of the Match Kapini, however, had to be alert to tip over a dangerous Chabangu corner moments before the end to ensure his team the full share of the spoils.

Bucs are grooming players for other clubs to shine, Ndulula is our boy. Just like Lorenzo Gordinho, Siyabonga Nkosi, Abia Nale,Jimmy Tau,Michael Morton, Lebogang Mokoena,Tshepo Liphoko, Vusi Mthimkhulu, the list is endless, Is either we groom them from young age or get them still as rough dimonds and we just instruct Palacios to polish them for the big teams
