Tuks Claim Home Win

ABSA Premiership

Teams: Tuks 2-0 AmaZulu

Date: 30 November 2013

Venue: Tuks Stadium

University of Pretoria overcame a three match losing streak by beating AmaZulu comfortably at Tuks Stadium in Saturday’s Absa Premiership match up.

Ayanda Dlamini had the first chance of the game for AmaZulu, when he got on the end of Nkosinathi Mthiyane’s cross which clipped the post before going wide in the 2nd minute.  

Usuthu came into the game on the back of a confidence boosting 2-0 home win over Platinum Stars on Wednesday and it showed in the start they made.

Khethukuthula Zwane fired a warning shot with just over 10 minutes played, but his effort did not test Mathibe in the Usuthu goal.

Steve Barker’s men grew into the game and threatened soon after through Atusaye Nyondo and Thabo Mosadi, but neither could find the target and Mathibe was not forced into any action.

Tuks’ pressure then paid off when they grabbed a deserved opener at Tuks Stadium. Carlington Nyadombo fouled Thabo Mosadi with just over 20 minutes on the clock, and Khethukuthula Zwane stepped up to score from the resulting free-kick to give the hosts the lead.

AmaTuks then sealed all three points in the first minute of the second-half when Grant Kekana combined well with Geoffrey Massa before beating Mathibe with a left-footed shot to double the Pretoria side’s lead.

Barker’s men started to dominate and looked comfortable on the ball as they pushed forward looking for a third. First-half goal-scorer Zwane tried his luck two minutes after the University team’s second, but his effort was dragged wide.

Unfortunately for Barker’s men the third did not come, even though they did half chances towards the end of the second-half with both Zwane and Massa letting fly without finding the target.

The Tuks coach however will be happy with an important three points and of course ending their losing streak.

How they started:

Tuks: Arubi, Kekana, Monyai, Shoyisa, Moussono Moussono, Ketjijere, Mkhwanazi, Mosadi, Zwane, Massa, Nyondo

AmaZulu: Mathibe, Macala, Teyise, Nyadombo, Van Heerden, Madondo, Dlamini G, Manqana, Mthiyane, Jakob, Dlamini A
