We have managed a win over Amazulu in the Diski shield game played in Vosloorus this morning.
Amazulu made an early charge from the kick-off and looked at threatening Cebekhulu, but the keeper managed to eventually hold onto the ball.
We turned the game, settled quickly and dominated play for the first 30 minutes of the first half. We secured an early lead when a brilliant cross from the far side by Conco found Sabelo waiting in the box. He made no mistake and tapped the ball in. Just 4 minutes later we extended the lead off a free kick.
It was Sabelo again who scored. His set piece split the wall and dipped into the bottom right corner. AmaZulu’s keeper Dlamini read the ball to late and was too late to make the save.
AmaZulu looked at playing back into the game. They missed a scoring opportunity from a free kick. Jooste took the set piece for them and managed to find the side netting. Their play and possession increased, however, they were not able to make any solid advances on our goals.
Usuthu suffered further set backs after Mthiyane was sent for an early shower after his second bookable offence in the 42nd minute.
The second half saw us enjoy some domination on the field, being a player down, Usuthu allowed us space and this saw us creating opportunities from both sides of the field.
M.Dlamini and Ndlelu did well in the midfield to win the ball against play for us as well. Allowing Zuke, M.Dlamini and Sabelo to play into the last third and create chances.
The introduction of Sibiya added some fresh legs and an injection of speed onto the field. He was not on the park long before he scored the third goal for us.
We then got complacent and allowed AmaZulu back into the game though. A defensive mistake from Zuke in the box who shouldered the Amazulu player, the ref deemed it as a foul and awarded Amazulu a penalty. Maduna took the shot, snuck the ball past Cebekhulu to give some hope to the opposition.
In the second minute of extra time, we conceded the second goal. A lapse in concentration saw Jooste have a shot from the left corner of the box. Cebekhulu had read the ball well, but a last touch from Biyase changed the direction of the ball, eventually beating our keeper.
A well executed game from the team and bragging rights for the Derby win in Vosloorus.
