Usuthu eye third consecutive NFD win


AmaZulu will be looking to extend their fine run in the National First Division (NFD) when they host FC Cape Town at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Sunday.

Kick-off is at 15h30.

Usuthu edged out their former Absa Premiership rivals Moroka Swallows 2-1 in the previous NFD clash at the Dobsonville Stadium last weekend.

Siyabonga Nomvete restored parity for AmaZulu against his former side in the 32nd minute, before Petrus Shitembi sealed Usuthu’s victory on the day.

Steve Barker’s side have now tasted victory in their last two league matches. They will be eyeing their third consecutive win on Sunday afternoon.

AmaZulu are 8th on the NFD standings having accumulated 25 points from 16 league matches this season.

Meanwhile, FC Cape Town will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways in the league when they travel to Durban to face Usuthu.

The African Beasts are coming off a 5-2 defeat to Black Leopards in their previous league match at the NNK Rugby Stadium last weekend.

Sekela Sithole and Maboke Matlakala netted what proved to be Cape Town’s consolation goals as Lidoda Duvha hammered them at home.

Johnny Ferreira’s side have recorded just one victory in their last five league matches. Their last victory came against Witbank Spurs early this year.

FC Cape Town are placed 14th on the NFD standings having accumulated 12 points from 16 league matches this season.

When AmaZulu and Cape Town clash in the first-round clash, the latter emerged 2-1 winners at the NNK Rugby Stadium in October, 2015.

Maboke Matlakala grabbed a brace for the home side, while Bornwell Mwape netted Usuthu’s consolation goal.
