The Benni McCarthy era at AmaZulu got off to the perfect start against Chippa United on Sunday.

BENNI MCCARTHY TOOK CHARGE OF HIS 1ST MATCH

The former Bafana Bafana striker took charge of his first DStv Premiership match at the Princess Magogo Stadium – and saw his side put in an impressive display.

It was the Chilli Boys who took the lead in the 14th minute through defender Isaac Nhlapo.

However, rather than let their heads drop, AmaZulu fought back through goals by Zambian striker Augustine Mulenga (24th minute) and South African midfielder Luvuyo Memela (29th minute) to go into half-time 2-1 ahead.

Ten minutes into the second half Memela scored his second goal to give Usuthu a cushion they held onto until the final whistle.

Kick-off is at 15:30.

Meanwhile, in Sunday’s only other DStv Premiership match, Swallows FC came from behind to beat Black Leopards 2-1.
