Cupido shines as Urban Warriors thrash AmaZulu

Cape Town Spurs claimed a well-deserved victory over AmaZulu by beating them 3-1 in the DStv Premiership at the Athlone Stadium on Saturday evening. The win could mark a start to the Urban Warriors’ bid to keep their PSL status alive.

Ashley Cupido came on as a substitute at half time and made all the difference for the team as he bagged a brace, scoring two crucial goals in the second half of the match. Boitumelo Radiopane made his long-awaited return to the side since suffering a serious injury during the 2023 promotion playoffs. 

Radiopane made a good effort in the game and had a penalty he took saved by Olwethu Mzimela in the first half. The player showed a promising return to the starting line-up.

Chumani Butsaka, who has been named the new captain for Cape Town Spurs also had an impressive game, scoring the first goal of the fixture in the 15th minute. The cherry on top, is that the goal was Butsaka’s first of the season. The only goal from AmaZulu came in the 31st minute from Abbubaker Mobara.

The victory should give the team a huge morale boost and the journey continues in the DStv Premiership. Despite still being in 16th place, the win for the team could be the catalyst for a huge battle to stay in the top-flight.
