Polokwane City made it two league wins out of two this season after a 93rd-minute goal Mohammed Anas earned them a 1-0 victory over AmaZulu at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
On the balance of play in a game which lacked in goalmouth action, a draw would have arguably been a fair result, and that’s how it seemed destined to be until the last-gasp winner.
The result leaves Usuthu without a point from their opening two matches, while the Limpopo outfit, who beat Black Leopards 1-0 last weekend, move to the top of the table.
There was a flurry of early action, with AmaZulu keeper Siyabonga Mbatha forced into making an excellent reflex save in the opening seconds in order to keep out a rasping angled drive from Anas.
Two minutes later, Polokwane keeper George Chigova was lucky to get away what would have been a real howler as he failed to control a routine back-pass, with the ball just trickling past the upright much to his relief.
