From Diski to TKO for Celtic duo

multichoice diski challenge
Cape Town - Dumisani Zuma and Vuyani Ntanga were able to replicate their MultiChoice Diski Challenge form, when they both scored for Bloemfontein Celtic in their Telkom Knockout clash against AmaZulu on Saturday.

Zuma scored the first goal of the match in the 49th minute and Ntanga doubled the lead with ten minutes remaining. The duo who had helped Celtic crush Moroka Swallows 8-0 in their last match of the tournament, with Ntanga netting four goals, got a recall to the first team for their efforts.

Zuma scored a beautiful goal after starting the move from the left. He then raced into space expecting a return pass, the ball fell kindly into his path - and he superbly placed the ball to the left, beating veteran goalkeeper Aubrey Mathibe. The exciting Ntanga received a pass on the edge of the box, outpaced his marker as he surged forward and then unleashed an unstoppable shot into the top of the net.

Unfortunately, they ended up on the losing side as a late comeback helped AmaZulu win the match in extra time.

Despite the loss, Celtic will be pleased that the youngsters were able to regain their form in the Diski Challenge and took it to the senior team.

The likes of Mpumalanga Black Aces have also benefitted from the reserve league. Denis Masina and Tshidiso Tukane are now back with the senior side having rediscovered their form after playing in the first match of the competition.

Josta Dladla, who captained the Kaizer Chiefs youngsters’ side in the first two matches, was also on the bench when the senior side played Maritzburg United last weekend – which further explains the importance of this competition.
