Pretoria - A brace from Bongani Ntuli handed Golden Arrows their first away win in the Absa Premiership this season, as they defeated University of Pretoria 2-0 at Tuks Stadium on Wednesday night.
 
Tuks called Arrows’ Pavel Steinbors into action as early as the second minute, with the goalkeeper forced to parry away a header from Mame Niang after good work to dig out a cross by Dumisani Ngwenya.
 
On eight minutes the visitors threatened a goal, with Nhlanhla Zothwane picking out Bongani Ntuli with a cross, but the attacker’s header flashed over the crossbar without testing goalkeeper Washington Arubi.
 
The teams then traded tame long-range shots before Zothwane let fly from 30 yards in the 37th minute and forced Arubi into an excellent save, with the Zimbabwean tipping the ball over the crossbar for a corner kick.
 
Six minutes later the University side came close to breaking the deadlock through another headed chance for Niang, but the Senegalese’s effort went just wide of the target.
 
The home side were made to pay for missing their opportunities just before half time when Ntuli put Abafana Bes’thende ahead. The midfielder scored with a right-footed shot from within the penalty area after some slack defending by Tuks.
 
Just before the hour mark, AmaTuks looked to bring themselves level through a shot from Thabo Mosadi, but Steinbors did well to punch the well-struck effort away and keep his side in the ascendancy.
 
The Arrows ‘keeper pulled off another excellent save in the 82nd minute, tipping over a header from Buhle Mkhwanazi that looked destined to find the back of the net. Steinbors’s efforts were not in vain, as Ntuli scored his second in the 89th minute to wrap up the three points for Arrows.
