Joseph Antipas, Coach of Amazulu FC

Witbank Spurs overcame AmaZulu 2-0 in the National First Division (NFD) game which was played at the Princess Magogo Stadium in Durban on Sunday afternoon

The defeat sees Usuthu slip down to eighth on the league table, while Siyavutha climb up to seventh on the standings.

Usuthu started the match brightly applying pressure on the Siyavutha defence forcing two corner-kicks in the early stages of the league encounter.

Zimbabwean Ovidy Karuru had a chance to put Usuthu into the lead just before the half-time break, but he failed to score and the first-half ended goalless.

Siyavutha pushed for the opening goal in the opening stages of the second-half and they did break the deadlock 15 minutes after the restart.

Patrick Mubayiwa was the man, who put Siyavutha into the lead following a quick one two play which allowed him to make it 1-0 to Spurs.

Usuthu coach Joey Antipas responded by introducing Roggert Nyundu, a striker by trade, as the home side looked to restore parity.

However, Innocent Shabalala extended the visitors’ lead in the 68th minute when he scored with a left-footed strike to make it 2-0 to Spurs.

Sbusiso Magaqa was also introduced in the late stages of the game by Antipas, but Spurs held on to their two-goal lead and they won 2-0 on the day.
