Absa Premiership

Result: AmaZulu 2-0 SuperSport United

Goals from Siyabonga Nomvethe and Ovidy Karuru inspired AmaZulu to a 2-0 win over SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership clash.

Usuthu carved out an early opening but Micheal Morton failed to hit the target from close range.

The hosts' early pressure paid off in the 11 minute, when an un-marked Nomvethe turned home Ovidy Karuru's cross at the far post.

SuperSport pushed for an equaliser and went close through Teboho Mokoena, while they also hit the upright midway through the half.

However, Usuthu did not sit back,  they managed to double their lead just before the break, courtesy of a strike from Karuru, following an error from Reyaad Pieterse.

Five minutes into the second half, Usuthu went close to adding a third, but Nomvethe's close range header had struck the woodwork.

On the hour mark, SuperSport awarded a penalty when Kingston Nkhatha was brought down under the challenge of Siyabonga Mbatha. The goalkeeper, however, redeemed himself by saving Aubrey Modiba's spot-kick.

The AmaZulu shot-stopper was the busier of the two goalkeepers, but he proved his worth by pulling off a number of fine saves to deny the likes of Mokoena on two occasions after 77 minutes.

Tinkler's charges continued to push for a goal in the closing stages, but AmaZulu remained resolute at the back to hold on for three points.
