AmaZulu strike late to down SuperSport

Posted: 28 January 2014 Time: 19:11

Ayanda Dlamini scored in the dying minutes of the game to hand AmaZulu a 1-0 win over SuperSport United at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday night.

Matsatsantsa missed a golden opportunity to go second, which they would have done with a win over Usuthu, who leapfrog United on the log.
 
Cavin Johnson made no fewer than four changes to the side that beat Orlando Pirates 2-1 last time out.
 
With Edwin Gyimah, David Mathebula and Bradley Grobler out due to injury, Thabiso Nkoana, Mame Niang and Morne Nel were included in the starting XI, while there was also a debut for 18-year-old Skhumbuzo Mazibuko.
 
Nkoana and debutant Mazibuko went close for the home side early on, with both flashing their respective efforts just wide of Zikalala’s post.

Bongani Ndlula brushed Rowen Williams' left-hand post in the 19th minute, in what was Usuthu’s first chance at goal.
 
Then Mazibuko went even closer for the hosts five minutes later. The Matsatsantsa youth product lost his marker before directing a powerful effort past Zikalala but not the crossbar.
 
AmaZulu should’ve had the lead at the break, were it not for a great save from Williams. A flowing move from the right flank ended with Ayanda Dlamini who somehow failed to find the back of the net from point-blank range.
 
The home side continued to spend a large portion of the match in their own half but Matsatsantsa looked dangerous on the counter.
 
Sibusiso Khumalo’s potent effort from range on the hour mark looked destined for the back of the net but Zikalala was well positioned and gathered the ball with ease.
 
Morne Nel then went close for Matsatsantsa in the 70th minute – a cheeky chip seemed to have Zikalala beaten but the ball landed on the roof of the net.
 
Then Ayanda Dlamini stunned the home crowd in the 87th minute. Bevan Fransman’s misplaced pass was precisely played straight back into the area by Bongi Macala; Dlamini gathered the pass before burying the ball past Williams, 1-0.
 
Benett Chenene and Dino Ndlovu had opportunities to rescue a point for the hosts late on but failed to find the back of the net.
 
The win for Usuthu moves them up to fourth place on the Premiership log while United slip down into fifth.

Morne Nel was the Absa Man of the Match.

Ha ha Amazulu is trying hard to prove the words that they is nothing special about Pierats. First Dunusa beat this weak Amazulu team 7-1, then Chiefs beat it 6-1 and it has already beat Pierats and drawn with it again. The Supersport beat Pierats into pulp, guess what Amazulu goes and beat Supersport to show that that was a weak Supersport.

  strikers in the PSL are poor when coming to finishing easy chances......how do one explain those missed sitters by Amazulu. I concur with RDS, I quote" I'm not the one who is playing" close quote. He was directing this statement to the unruly fans to foetsek
