AmaTuks 1-0 Maritzburg United
8 March 2015

Maritzburg United were unable to take advantage of an early sending off for Tuks, going down 1-0 in Pretoria on Sunday.


The Tshwane side opened the scoring in the seventh minute, with Atusaye Nyondo slotting home from Grant Kekana’s assist .

However, the University side were dealt a major blow just before the half hour mark when Vuyisile Ntombayithethi was shown a straight red card for violent conduct in a challenge with Kurt Lentjies.

Maritzburg, with a numerical advantage, dominated possession and forced Tuks on the back foot, though the hosts remained a potent threat on the counter attack.

United created several good chances to gain parity in the second half, though a combination of poor finishing and some excellent defending by Tuks kept the KwaZulu-Natal side at bay.

The result sees Tuks move up to seventh on the log with 29 points, while United remain in 10th on 24 points.

 

 

AmaTuks: Arubi, Kekana, Shoyisa, Jaure (Nkausu 90’), Monyai, Matsi, Ntombayithethi, Mosadi (Zwane 90+3’), Mnyamane, Massa, Nyondo (Ketjijere 31’)

Maritzburg: Vries, Mabaso (Cele 46’), Banda (Sekotlong 37’), Paintsil, Vilakazi, Mkhize, Lentjies, Mngonyama, Mokate (Mandaza 67’), P. Zulu, Anas
