Benni Extends Record Run With AmaZulu
Benni McCarthy and AmaZulu have continued their brilliant run in the DStv Premier League, extending their own record in the competition.
AmaZulu beat TS Galaxy 2-1 on Saturday thanks to a first-half brace by Lehlohonolo Majoro to go within three points of Mamelodi Sundowns on the log.
The victory saw Usuthu extend their best-ever run in Premier League history, with McCarthy’s side now being unbeaten for 14 successive matches.
AmaZulu have won 10 of those matches, drawing the other four, with their last defeat dating back to 13 January when they lost 1-0 to Kaizer Chiefs.
Overall, AmaZulu have lost just three of the 20 games since McCarthy took over the reigns, making the coach once again a strong contender for the next Coach of the Month accolades.
They have collected 44 points this campaign already, three less than Sundowns, who have three games in hand.
