Usuthu, Arrows renew rivalry in KZN Derby


AmaZulu FC are set to face their KwaZulu-Natal rivals Lamontville Golden Arrows in an Absa Premiership match at the King’s Park Stadium on Saturday.

Kick-off is at 20h15 CAT.

Usuthu broke a five-game winless streak in the league when they defeated Polokwane City 1-0 at home on February 2.

Lethal marksman Bonginkosi Ntuli’s goal gave the KwaZulu-Natal giants a crucial victory as they look to retain their status in the elite league.

AmaZulu have claimed 11 points from 10 home matches so far in the current 2019/20 season.

Meanwhile, Arrows claimed a seventh win of the season when an own goal from Luke Fleurs saw them defeat SuperSport United 1-0 at home on February 1.

Abafana Bes’thende have claimed just seven points from 10 away matches in the current campaign.

In head-to-head stats, Arrows and AmaZulu have met in 25 league matches since 2001/02.

Usuthu have claimed 11 wins compared to nine for Abafana Bes’thende, while five matches have been drawn.

The team clad in green and white has recorded six wins, three draws and three defeats from 12 matches as hosts in this rivalry.

When the teams met earlier this season, at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium in September 2019, they played out a 1-1 draw with penalties from Nduduzo Sibiya and Bonginkosi Ntuli.

Usuthu have won seven of the last 11 league meetings of the teams.
