Davids does it for United in Ajax clash

2011-08-18 00:00

A 78TH-MINUTE header by Maritzburg United substitute Fadlu Davids gave the Team of Choice a valuable 1-1 draw with Ajax Cape Town in an Absa Premiership clash at the Cape Town Stadium last night.

A 36th minute left-footed strike from a free kick taken by Brett Evans gave Ajax a much-deserved lead.

Ajax created a lot of chances in the first half with Khama Billiat and Terror Fanteni going close on several occasions.

Maritzburg were forced into an early substitution after the injured Thabang Matuka was replaced by Rheece Evans inside the first half.

Ajax’s persistent passing game paid off in the 36th minute when a foul by Sheldon Lawrence on Fanteni resulted in a free kick, which was scored by Evans, who ironically played his junior football in Maritzburg.

Diyo Sibisi proved to be a pain in the neck for his former teammates and came close to scoring on a number of occasions.

In the 42nd minute his left-footed shot parried away by Sean Roberts, who had a busy night in goals.

In the 78th minute a Sibisi cross found the head of Davids in the Ajax danger area and the Cape Town-born forward capitalised, sending his header into the back of the net.

Results:

Ajax Cape Town (1) 1 (B Evans 36)

Maritzburg United (0) 1 (Davids 78)
