Tuks victory earns Playoff spot

Posted: 21 May 2016 Time: 14:36

University of Pretoria will contest the PSL Promotion/Relegation Playoffs after a 2-1 Absa Premiership victory over Golden Arrows at Tuks Stadium secured 15th place.

Tuks' win, coupled with Maritzburg United's 3-1 victory over Jomo Cosmos, saw Cosmos end bottom of the log.

Vuyisile Ntombayithethi headed in Tuks; important opening goal in the 29th minute from Getaneh Kebede's inswinging free-kick from the left.

Kebede then scored from a direct free-kick just before half-time to give Shaun Bartlett's side a huge boost heading into the break.

Thabo Nemokondeni was sent off for a second bookable offence for simulation in the 80th minute, meaning his side had to close out the game with 10 men, but they held on despite a late consolation goal from Gladwin Shitolo.

The result ended Arrows' top-eight hopes as they finished ninth.
