AmaZulu claimed the KZN derby bragging rights after beating Golden Arrows 2-0 in an ABSA Premiership match played at the King Zwelithini stadium in Umlazi on Saturday. Bonginkosi Ntulu scored both goals of the match in the first half.

Usuthu, who are yet to lose a match at home this season, have replaced Arrows in the 10th position on the standings after collecting maximum points. They have the same number of points, 16, as the now eleventh placed Arrows.

Golden Arrows head coach Clinton Larsen has expressed disappointment at losing the KZN derby.  Larsen says the team tried to come back after they were 1-0 down, but they failed to convert their chances. The Lamontville-based club will finish this year at position eleven in the PSL with 15 points after 15 games played so far.

Larsen was unhappy about a penalty that brought Usuthu’s second goal: “The players showed good character to come back from an early goal down. Second goal I will rather not talk about it for obvious reasons. It one of those games when something like that happens was not meant to be.”

AmaZulu fans were pleased to see their team move away from the relegation zone after a poor start to the season.
