amazulu-vs-piratesOrlando Pirates are still licking their wounds after a 1-0 bashing by the Durban-based Amazulu FC on Thursday in FNB stadium.

Former Bucs striker Bongani ‘Drogba’ Ndulula’s only goal of the match was enough for Usuthu to board back to Durban with three points.

The Buc’s came into the clash with their tails up as they collected maximum points in the champions league against the-much feared Al Ahly, from Egypt on Sunday. However, Amazulu were determined to bring the Sea Robbers back to earth.

Amazulu started the log long-marathon on a good note as compared to their 2012/2013 PSL season’s first game where they were smacked down by the PSL champions Kaizer Chiefs by 6-0 in their backyard at Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The men in green and white are at position three of the log with one game and three points. The Sea Robbers saw themselves sleeping in position 12 of the log, with one game and no points in their records.

PSL encounters will take a break this weekend and make way for MTN8 clashes to take place, with Orlando Pirates clashing against Supersport United on Sunday, which is under the supervision of newly appointed, Cavin Johnson, who was recruited from Platinum Stars.

Amazulu FC will use this weekend for training because they are not part of the MTN8 as they ended the 2012/2013 season outside the top Eight.
