AmaZulu played to a goalless draw against Polokwane City in the DStv Premiership on Tuesday evening at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

In a bid to collect a win, the team could not manage to find the final product to ensure a collection of all the points in the match. Instead, the spoils were shared with Rise and Shine.

The result sees AmaZulu remain in 12th position on the log after a challenging fixture at home against the Limpopo based team.

The first half was a bit nervy for the home team, but a solid defensive display prevented the conceding of a goal and the second half saw a more offensive effort from Usuthu.

Despite not managing to score, AmaZulu looked more secure in the back and on the ball as the team kept a clean sheet at home.

The next fixture that the team will play in the league is a fixture against Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Sunday afternoon, 7 April.
