AmaZulu, Wits share points



Two goals in two minutes, one from Carlington Nyadombo and one from Bhongolwethu Jayiya saw AmaZulu and Bidvest Wits play to a 1-1 draw in an Absa Premiership match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The first 45 minutes was a rather cagey affair with neither side really able to get a firm grip on the game.

Instead, both teams squandered possession, often giving the ball away cheaply and were hence unable to create many decent goal scoring chances.

The first real attempt on goal came in the 17th minute when Andile Khumalo let loose with a long range effort, but it was comfortably saved by Ryan Harrison in the Wits goal.

Four minutes later and the Clever Boys had their first shot on goal when Matthew Pattison let fly with a shot from just outside the box that stung the hands of Tapuwa Kapini, but the keeper did well to hold onto the ball.

Chances were few and far between and the next effort on goal only came four minutes before the break when Ayanda Dlamini rose highest to meet a Thamsanqa Teyise cross, but the AmaZulu attacker headed the ball wide of the target.

The second 45 started with bang as the home side took the lead from the penalty spot five minutes after the restart.

The penalty was awarded for a foul by veteran defender Katlego Pule on Kulegani Madondo inside the box. Carlington Nyadombo stepped up and calmly slotted the ball home, 1-0.

Wits, though, were not to be outdone and quickly hit back with Bhongolwethu Jayiya finding the equaliser two minutes after his side went behind.

The substitute produced a clinical low finish from roughly 12-yards-out which whizzed pass Kapini, 1-1.

Kagiso Senamela had a chance to win it for the home side seven minutes from time when he got on the end of a Marc Van Heerden cross, but he shot wide from 14-yards out as the match ended all square.

The result sees Wits move into seventh place on the log while AmaZulu remain rooted to the bottom of the table.
