GOALS were the only missing thing in the DStv Premiership clash between AmaZulu and SuperSport United at Jonsson Kings Park Stadium last night.

It was ill-tempered encounter, especially on the touchline where Usuthu coach Benni McCarthy appeared to be not impressive with a couple of decisions by match officials.

Both teams finished the match with 10 players after Tercious Malepe of AmaZulu and Luke Fleurs of SuperSport were sent off in the second half.

There were not many chances created in the first half.

The second half restart was delayed and resumed 15 minutes late after a power outage affected the venue.

In the second stanza, the two teams still could not be separated, and they took a point each as they played to a goalless draw.

The result means AmaZulu have now played five matches in all competitions without winning a game.

They started the season with a 2-1 defeat against Cape Town City in the MTN8 quarter-finals, which was followed by a 1-0 defeat by Mamelodi Sundowns in their first league match.

A league goalless draw followed against Swallows FC before losing 1-0 to Malawian side Nyasa Big Bullets in their Caf Champions League debut last Friday.

The most frustrating part for coach McCarthy is that the last season runners-up have only found the back of the net once in all of their five games so far.

AmaZulu remain in 15th place on the log with just two points, and Matsatsantsa A Pitori occupy the second spot with five points.

Usuthu’s next match will be a visit to Malawi on Thursday for their Champions League second leg clash against Big Bullets, where they need a win, by all means, to keep their Caf journey alive.
