Benni McCarthy’s AmaZulu side went down 2-0 to Golden Arrows in their DStv Premiership clash in Durban on Wednesday.
BENNI MCCARTHY WASN’T IN THE DUGOUT
Although McCarthy, appointed by the KwaZulu-Natal side earlier in the week, wasn’t in the dugout, he’ll have seen first-hand the enormity of the task that awaits him.
Golden Arrows took the lead from the penalty spot in first-half extra-time when Nduduzo Sibiya gave the visitors to Kings Park a 1-0 lead.
Shortly after the resumption Velemseni Ndwandwe made it 2-0.
And that’s the way the score stayed until full-time.
AMAZULU LOST FOR THE THIRD TIME
For Golden Arrows, they remained unbeaten this season and after seven matches find themselves in sixth-place in the standings.
AmaZulu however, lost for the third time in seven outings and remained in 11th-place – a long way off a top 4 spot that McCarthy said he was aiming for at his unveiling.
AmaZulu will play their final league match of the year next Sunday, December 20 against Chippa United.
Kick-off is at 15:30.
Meanwhile, Golden Arrows’ unbeaten run will be put to the test against reigning champions and log-leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on Saturday, December 19 (15:30).
