Lively Usuthu Held By Maritzburg

ABSA Premiership

Result: AmaZulu 0-0 Maritzburg

Date: 12 February 2013

Venue: Moses Mabhida Stadium

AmaZulu played some neat football but their failure to finish saw them play out a 0-0 draw at home to Maritzburg United on Tuesday night.

Usuthu thought they had opened the scoring just eight minutes into the game through Ayanda Dlamini but the offside flag would deny the attacker.

Heinrich Isaacks responded for the Team of Choice four minutes later when he met a pass from Terrance Mandaza but his shot flew over the crossbar.

The hosts were looking strong and Shu-Aib Walters would need to make a smart save to deny Thokozani Mshengu while the stopper kept out Andile Khumalo in the 32nd minute.

Usuthu had another chance through Khumalo soon after but again Walters was on hand to parry the ball away from danger.

Mario Booysen saw his header towards Byrone Hendrick saved while Dlamini fired straight at the goalkeeper with 20 minutes to go when he should have done better.

Mshengu tried his luck for a late winner but Watlers made a comfortable save while Delron Buckley lashed a shot over the crossbar at the other end.

Neither side managed any clear-cut chances in the dying minutes of the game as they each claimed a point.

AmaZulu: Tapuwa Kapini, Luyanda Hlongwa, Marc Van Heerden, Carlington Nyadombo, Thamsanqa Teyise, Kulegani Madondo, Goodman Dlamini, Njabulo Manqana, Thokozani Mshengu, Andile Khumalo, Ayanda Dlamini.

Maritzburg: Shu-Aib Walters, Byron Hendricks, Peter Petersen, Mario Booysen, Michael Morton, Thabang Matuka, Delron Buckley, Dillon Sheppard, Bandile Shandu, Heinrich Isaacks, Terrence Mandaza.
