AmaZulu FC’s dream run continued under the reign of former Bafana Bafana star Benni McCarthy on Saturday evening.
McCarthy’s men beat TS Galaxy 2-1 at the Jonsson Kings Park Stadium in South Africa.
The win saw AmaZulu return to second place on the log table of South Africa’s top tier league.
AmaZulu surged ahead when former Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro slotted in via the near post after beating goalkeeper Marlon Heugh at the near post.
Majoro doubled the advantage from a rebound in the 42nd minute.
Galaxy reduced the arrears through Mbatha who converted from the penalty spot late in the game.
AmaZulu are now three points behind defending champions and leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns.
However, Sundowns have three games in hand having collected 47 points from 21 games against AmaZulu’s 21 matches.
