Thanda Draw Again, AmaZulu Grab Second Spot

National First Division log leaders, Thanda Royal Zulu, were held to a goalless draw by Royal Eagles, AmaZulu maintained their play-off spot after a 3-1 victory over Cape Town All Stars, while Stellenbosch overpowered University of Pretoria 2-0.
 
In addition, Mthatha Bucks suffered their first home defeat, Mbombela United thrashed Milano United 4-0 and Real Kings put another nail into Santos’ coffin.
 
Usuthu, down 1-0 at the break, suddenly came to life in the second period when Tapelo Nyongo lashed home a neat curling free kick. This was followed by Mabhuti Khenyeza’s tap in and yet another clinical Siyabonga Nomvethe shot, which lifts their team into second spot – 9 points behind Amabhubhesi!
 
Earlier, Lucky Setelele had opened the scoring for Igugu Lekapa.
 
Stellenbosch grabbed their 40th point thanks to opportunistic first-half strikes from Stanley Muishond and Mame Niang.
 
The match at AmaTuks Stadium was played at a frantic pace with tackles flying in all directions.
 
There was also plenty of action in Mthatha, where Witbank Spurs’ veteran striker, Rhulani Ngunyule, struck the crossbar before Bucks’ substitute, Khulekani Buthelezi, brought joy to the Amathol’amnyama faithful with a good finish.
 
However, this celebration was short-lived because Siyavutha immediately equalised then scored the winner via an own goal.
 
This 2-1 victory means Spurs are level with Eagles on 37 points but just outside the two play-off spots with five games to go.
 
Lurking three points behind are Mbombela, who pummelled Eezy my Kinnes at Athlone as Thamsanqa Masiya, Inky Masuku, Tshediso Patjie and Tshepo Liphoko put their names on the score sheet.
 
Milano had initially managed to hold their opponents until the 43rd minute prior to the flood gates opening, which leaves them merely a point from the relegation zone.
 
In fact, with Magesi whipping FC Cape Town 3-0, the bottom of the table is just as interesting as the top.
 
These two outfits are now level pegged on the same points (25), while also sharing the same goal difference (-12) but as the African Beasts have netted more goals, they remain safe for now.
 
Magesi’s heroes in Polokwane were Thembisani Nevhulamba, Karabo Moses and Sakhele Nhlabathi.
 
Kings, with a Thobane Kunene brace, beat Santos 2-0.
