Dlamini Hands AmaZulu Late Win

Absa Premiership

Full Time: SuperSport United 0-1 AmaZulu

Date: 28 January 2014

Venue:  Lucas Moripe Stadium

A goal three minutes from time by Ayanda Dlamini handed AmaZulu a slender 1-0 win over SuperSport United in an Absa Premiership match at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Tuesday night.

SuperSport started the better of the two teams and created their first chance on goal in the fourth minute after Skhumbuzo Mazibuko attempted a snap shot from just inside the box, but he saw his effort go inches wide of the post.

Five minutes later and SuperSport’s Enocent Mkhabela tried his luck form long range, but he also saw his powerful shot miss the target.

In the 19th minute AmaZulu fashioned their first scoring chance and were unlucky not to take the lead as Bongani Ndulula curled a shot into the upright from the edge of the box.

Five minutes later and it was the chance of SuperSport to be denied by the woodwork after a shot from Mazibuko thundered into the crossbar.

The next effort on target only came in the 40th minute when Ayanda Dlamini found himself through on goal, but he was denied from point blank range by Ronwen Williams, the keeper producing a fine stop.

SuperSport, though, had the last say of the half after Mame Niang met a right wing cross at the back post, but his header went narrowly wide of the target.

The start of the second half saw AmaZulu create the first opening in the 53rd minute as Ndulula played Kulegani Madondo in behind the United defence, but he failed to make the most of it as he fired wide of goal with just the keeper to beat.

Seven minutes later and SuperSport were on the attack as Sibusiso Khumalo fired a ferocious long range volley goalwards, but saw his effort superbly saved by Philani Zikalala.

In the 70th minute Morne Nel came bitterly close to opening the scoring after spotting the goalie off his line, but his chip found the roof of the net and not the back of it.

Just as the game looked to be ending without a goal a mistake by Bevan Fransman gifted AmaZulu the win in the 87th minute.

A stray pass from Fransman was picked up by Ayanda Dlamini and he made no mistake with a clinical finish beyond Williams.
