Sundowns drop two crucial points against Usuthu

[Posted 05 May 2011]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Siyanda Xulu"s costly mistake in the 45th minute cost Sundowns 2 points against Amazulu

Mamelodi Sundowns' title hopes were dealt a big blow when they failed to convert the numerous chances created in the first half to end the match 1-1 against Amazulu away in in Durban last night.

Katlego Mphela managed to convert one of the many chances the Brazillians created in the first half, when he headed in a Matthew Patterson delivery from the left. That goal came only in the 33rd minute.

It was Mphela's 13th goal in the league and he is now tied up at the top goal scorers' chart with Kaizer Chiefs' hotshot striker Knowledge Musona.

Sundowns lost a great opportunity to move into second and leapfrog Orlando Pirates when defender Siyanda Xulu could only divert Sibusiso Hadebe's free-kick into his own net past keeper Wayne Sandilands.

That mistake might possibly cost Sundowns the best chance they had to catch up with leaders Ajax, who have to cross the hurdle posed by Chiefs this weekend in a match to be played at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Sundowns will now have to rely on results from elsewhere if they are to end the season as champions of the ABSA premier Soccer League. It is highly unlikely that Ajax or Pirates will allow any slip-ups in the last two games of the season.

Method Mwanjale had to clear what looked like a second goal for Amazulu from the line in the 81st minute of the game, to keep the scoreline 1-1 by the end of the match.
