Premier Soccer League match report AmaZulu 1-0 Polokwane City

Posted: 19 March 2014 Time: 22:21

Lucky Nguzana scored a late winner on debut as AmaZulu edged struggling Polokwane City 1-0 in a Premiership tie at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Wednesday night.

Both sides tried long range efforts early in the game but Bongani Ndulula fired wide in the seventh minute while Sandile Sibande blasted his shot over the crossbar at the other end five minutes later.

The hosts then increased the tempo but Ndulula saw his header deflected over the crossbar in the 19th minute before Njabulo Manqana forced the goalkeeper to parry a dangerous cross in the 32nd minute.

City managed to create some chances before the break but Galabgwe Moyana fired just wide of the upright in the 39th minute, while Maxwell Molala shot straight at Philani Zikalala on the stroke of half time.

The second half started at a decent pace with Manqana squaring the ball across goal in the 49th minute, but Ayanda Dlamini was outpaced by the defender at the far post.

The visitors broke forward from the resulting corner and Thobani Mncwango was left free on the left side of the box, but his weak shot was saved by Zikalala at the near post.

From then it was all Usuthu as Goodman Dlamini volleyed wide from the left side of the box in the 60th minute, while John Arwuah directed his shot straight at the goalkeeper five minutes later.

In the 71st minute G. Dlamini saw his low shot saved by Modiri Marumo, while Moyana failed to hit the target at the other end four minutes later.

The pressure eventually paid off for the home side in the first minute of added time when Nguzana was left unmarked to fire a low volley past the diving keeper to clinch maximum points.

lucky nguzana is a top striker who has not been given a chance at sundowns,that really affects his sharpness and he was competing with Bonginkosi Ntuli. u wil never doubt a talent coming from puk tawana,coach by Zipho Dlangala.He is a man to lead us in 2018 world cup if played regularly. I expect a lot form Nguzana,Ntuli,Nqabeni,Siseko Manona(former transnet school of excellence striker), cele for Thanda Zulu Royals striker. we need god strikers upfront.

@mehlo

I remember this boy at Sundowns during Stoichkov tenure, he showed so much ability in pre-season friendly games, then he just vanished.

I hope he will finally show his true potential at Amazulu.

Yellow I remain

if he is so good why he did not make it at Golden Arrows? talent is never enough, you have to work hard, take instructions and support your team mates

Pizza Mosimane by now is aware that he is a worst tactician. All that he discarded is glittering, blossoming and proving Pizza wrong. I love Sundowns but guys stay where you are until Igusend is coaching our team. Players who accepted to sabotage Igusend are all gone. Management is worrisome though

It's no use beat big teams and struggle against team of your level and eventually relegated. Use the same effort and passion you would be untouchabble by name. Small teams train for 3 teams in a year

@SisterP

That's why I'm disappointed at this boy, he has the ability, he should be far by now. If he can focus on his career, this boy will be big I promise you

SisterP He never got a chance to show his ability, he got physical strength, combined with left foot. The fact we need a young quality strikers and be developed to be world-class , lets support any coming strikers and advise them on their weakness. He was competing with Ntuli at golden arrows whom I believe is also one of the future strikers that we have at the moment. Others quality young striker like Andile Nqabeni-who wants described as new Samuel Eto and Siseko Manona (former transnet school of excellence and university of Pretoria striker) who is highly rated by Steve Barker, showed glims of being future prospects but the are nowhere to be seen. we can"t afford to loose these young strikers at this stage as we need a complete 2018 world cup squad.

Mnune I agree with fully, even Robert Marawa mentioned him at one stage.he bullied Yaya Toure and Narsi for man city and andile jail at some stage. Even a Experience player from Mancity went to him and said "look you are a good player and keep working hard". we have young defensive midfield in madondo,jali and mokotjo.we shouldn''t cry about lack of quality in this country, the problem we look whether a player plays for chiefs, sundowns and pirates
