AmaZulu maintained their good form in the National First Division (NFD) with a 6-1 win over Milano United at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Mabhuti Khenyeza opened the scoring for Usuthu when he converted a penalty six minutes into the game after Siyabonga Nomvethe had been fouled in the box.
However, Thurlow Wood leveled matters for the visitors when he headed home to make it 1-1 for Milano, who were hoping to end their winless run.
The home side managed to restore their lead through Vukile Mngqibisa, who headed home to ensure that the first-half ended with AmaZulu leading 2-1.
An action-packed second-half followed as Usuthu continued their dominance against the Cape Town side. It was soon 3-1 to Usuthu as Nomvethe scored with a header.
Lungelo Dlamini then tapped home from close range to make it 4-1 to Usuthu as things went from bad to worse for Milano three minutes after the hour-mark.
With 20 minutes left on the clock, Boysen Mbatha extended AmaZulu’s lead with thunderous long-range effort much to the delight of the home crowd.
Dylan Stoffels, who had replaced Khenyeza, sealed Usuthu’s 6-1 victory in the 83rd minute and the home side recorded their third successive league win.Share
