A goal late in the first half secured a win against us for AmaZulu in the Durban Derby this afternoon.
The game delivered on the excitement that was expected from both teams from the initial kick off, and fans should not have been disappointed with the caliber of game.
The fist half was an equal footed affair with teams cancelling out each others attacks and keeping pressure on each other in the final third. It looked as if we would head into the break with no score on the board however a goal in the 2nd minute of optional time from Memela saw Usuthu heading to the changeroom with a one goal lead.
Returning to the park, we made 2 changes, and the introduction of Makhubela and Mtshali injected some much needed fire into our game.
We kept pressure on the AmaZulu goals for the entire half and looked determined to score. Unfortunately decisions on the field did not go our way and no matter what we tried, we were not able to break the defense nor find the back of the net.
The team will need to regroup and get their heads into the next game against Maritzburg United at Harry Gwala Stadium on the 12th May.
