Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town had a second half meltdown as they went down 4-2 to AmaZulu at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday night.

Ajax started the game the more enterprising side and dominated proceedings from the kick off.

However, for their most part their play in the final third of the field lacked invention and there was a lack of clear cut chances.

Brent Carelse had half a chance from a tight angle in the third minute, while five minutes later, Terror Fanteni should have done better than volley weakly at Tapuwa Kapini from close range.

Usuthu looked unconvincing going forward and had to wait until the 23rd minute for their first real chance, which saw Sander Westerveld pulling off a good save from a goal bound Ayanda Dlamini.

But 10 minutes later and the Durban side were ahead when Nazier Allie dithered at the back after being put under pressure from Westerveld's pass, allowing Goodman Dlamini to net with relative ease.

The Urban Warriors were able to draw level briefly when Matthew Booth squeezed in a shot past keeper Tapuwa Kapini after 70 minutes.

But the lead was short-lived as Tamsanqa Sangweni scored an amazing free kick - from 40-yards out the ball flew into the top corner.

Ajax's problems were compounded with the sending off of two players in quick succession - Granwald Scott and Fanteni both getting their marching orders.

AmaZulu extended their lead when Goodman Dlamini netted from close range with seven minutes to go.

The hosts though threatened an unlikely comeback when Allie bundled the ball over the line in the 89th minute.

Ajax, spurred on by Booth, pushed hard for an equaliser, but it was at the other end that the final goal came as Joseph Lekata made it 4-2 deep into injury time.
