Mame Niang scores twicve as AmaTuks beat Black Leopards

Posted: 27 April 2013 Time: 17:00

Mame Niang scored twice as University of Pretoria beat Black Leopards 3-1 to further put pressure on Lidoda Duvha.

Bongani Zungu’s first-half strike coupled with a brace from Mame Niang put Lidoda Duvha back into the relegation zone. Leopards’ goal was scored by Raymond Monama.

The home side created the first chance of the match. Rodney Ramagalela made a driving run down the right before delivering a precise ball to the feet of Karabo Tshepe, but the midfielder could only blast his first-time shot well over the crossbar from close range.

The early scare seemed to spring AmaTuks into life. Niang and Aubrey Ngoma combined in the space of a minute but on both occasions the Senegalese striker failed to hit the target when it looked easier to find the back of the net.

However, the away side deservedly opened the scoring in the 11th minute. Zungu controlled an Ngoma ball superbly before hitting home from inside the area to register his seventh goal of the campaign.

It seemed as if the break did Leopards a world of good, but just as they seemed about to claw their way back into the tie, Maruping went close for AmaTuks, before Niang extended the Tshwane outfit’s lead.

Maruping had a great chance to double his sides lead in the 58th minute of the game. Zungu played the midfielder into acres of space but he could only drag his shot wide of from the edge of the area.

Niang doubled his side’s lead on the hour-mark from an Ngoma corner-kick. The striker rose highest before nodding a powerful effort into the back of the net - the goal was the forward’s ninth in the league this season.

Monama pulled one back for the home side in the 64th minute; the midfielder’s dipping effort beat an out-of-position Washington Arubi.

Niang then extended his side’s lead in the 80th minute of the game. Moussono-Moussono pulled the ball back into the path of the former Wolfsburg man and he made no mistake, sliding the ball past a helpless Omony.

The win takes AmaTuks into sixth place on the log, while the loss for Leopards means that slip into 15th place on the log and back into the relegation zone by virtue of goal difference.

@ Ghost haaaa are you serious? :-) Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse, Mamadou Niang and the dozes of other Senegalese strikers playing in Europe. Tuks' Niang would struggle to even make the second team.

This Zungu boy just keeps on going. I like his playing style, Niang what a striker, the kind who creates something out of nothing. 4 more goals and he will take the golden boot. I'm a chiefs but I don't see parker scoring more than three goals in the coming matches.
