The match was the second leg in the second preliminary round clash after the first leg finished goalless in Durban last weekend.

Bonginkosi Ntuli broke the deadlock for Usutu just before the half-time break from a rebound inside the box which gave AmaZulu a vital away goal.

Despite constant pressure from the home side in the second half, AmaZulu stood firm and their defence was only breached in stoppage time by Adam Bossu.

However, Bossu’s effort was effectively the last action of the match as Benni McCarthy’s men had done enough to progress on the away goals rule and throw their name into the hat for the group stage draw.

In the second preliminary round, McCarthy’s side were drawn against CAF Champions League veterans TP Mazembe who, as five-time champions, know all about Africa’s premier continental tournament.

The first leg of their tie ended goalless in KwaZulu-Natal last Friday.
