Amazulu beat Kaizer Chiefs 4-0 at Moses Mabhida Stadium to climb to fifth place in the DStv Premiership.
Former Chiefs midfielder Dumisani Zuma opened the scoring for the home side with a well-taken header inside the 15 minutes.
A minute later Chiefs were awarded a penalty when Ashley du Preez was fouled inside the box by Abbubaker Mobara. But Bonfils-Caleb Bimenyimana’s penalty was saved by Veli Mothwa.
On the 37th minute Ramahlwe Mphahlele doubled the lead with a header before Junior Dion made it 3-0 a minute before half time.
Amazulu made it 4-0 in stoppage time when Bongi Ntuli capitalized from poor defending.
“It was a solid performance and the difference was that we took our chances,” Mphahlele said on Supersport after the match.
“They were little bit shaky on set pieces and I told George [Maluleka], just to put a good delivery and we will attack them and we managed to score two goals. From there they got demoralized and we capitalised on that. It was a good performance from the boys and everybody worked hard and the substitutes that came on worked their socks off.”
Despite the defeat, Kaizer Chiefs coach Arthur Zwane he was proud of his team.
“If you look at the game we played last week [against Sekhukhune United] and the way we played today; we put them on the back foot early in the game.
Maybe here and there was poor decision making in the final third [of the field]. Then we conceded, just after conceding from a dead-ball situation I believe we could have defended better. Then we got a penalty, had we converted the penalty it would have been a different ball game.
We made another mistake whenever we make mistakes, we get punished but when opponents make mistakes, we don’t take them. It’s a day I would like to forget. Players tried their best but it was not our day. The performance was not that bad.”
