KZN Derby match report: Golden Arrows vs Maritzburg United

Posted: 24 November 2013 Time: 15:17

Maritzburg United could not force a comeback as Golden Arrows won the KwaZulu-Natal Derby this afternoon.

Quick fire goals from Thanduyise Khuboni and Bonginkosi Ntuli in the second half were enough to move Abafana Bes’thende out of the relegation zone, while Ayanda Nkosi scored a consolation goal for the Team of Choice.

Both coaches rang the changes, with Mark Harrison making three alterations to the side that lost to SuperSport United last time out and Clinton Larsen making no fewer than five to the side that lost to Platinum Stars.

Robyn Johannes, Nhlanhla Vilakazi and Ashley Hartog missed the encounter through injury.

Vuyisile Ntombayithethi nearly got the hosts off to a great start, when his shot from range had the beating of Shu-Aib Walters but not the crossbar.

The first half failed to catch alight, with neither side really challenging the opposition goalkeeper.

It was not for a lack of trying, however, as both teams played with attacking intent, but the final ball was almost non-existent. 

But both teams came out firing for the second 45, creating a number of scoring opportunities.

Frank Sarfo-Gyamfi went close to giving the visitors the lead on the hour mark, stepping neatly past Walters, but his effort was cleared off the line by Mzivukile Tom.

Abafana Bes’thende then opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Dumisani Zwane was adjudged to have been brought down in the area by Micheal Morton, although the decision was a bit harsh on the midfielder. Khuboni duly stepped up and placed the ball into the top corner.

Ntuli doubled the home side’s lead three minutes later with a superb solo effort. The sturdy forward absolutely bamboozled Peter Petersen before curling the ball past Walters and into the top corner.

Ayanda Nkosi pulled one back for the Team of Choice in the 71st minute, moments after coming off the bench. Mohamed Awal’s cross was cleverly met on the volley by Nkosi, and Mngoma did not stand a chance.

Arrows held on to secure the three points and subsequently move out of the drop zone. Maritzburg remain in eighth.
