Ajax Cape Town were unable to break down a determined Golden Arrows outfit as they fell to a 1-0 Absa Premiership defeat at the Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu on Sunday afternoon.

Limbikani Mzava scored the only goal of the game on a windy day in the KwaZulu-Natal province.

Arrows started the more brighter of the two sides and went close through Lerato Lamola in the 18th minute, but Brandon Petersen pulled off a world class save to deny the forward from point-blank range.

Petersen, though. was at fault nine minutes later with his error leading to a penalty as Mosa Lebusa fouled Lamola following a fumble by the shot-stopper. Mzava duly stepped up to the spot with an unstoppable shot, 1-0.

Lebusa and Tendai Ndoro went close to restoring parity for the visitors before the break, but neither could direct their respective attempts on target.

The Urban Warriors did all the attacking in the second stanza as Abafana Bes’thende opted to play on the counter-attack.

Ajax Cape Town, though, failed to conjure any clear cut chances as the Arrows defence held firm with the hosts ultimately securing all three points on the day.

Golden Arrows: Mbaeva; Nkombelo, Buthelezi, Mathiane, Mzava - Bilankulu, Zuke - Magubane (Jappie 49') [Jooste 82'], Ndwandwe (Molefe 74'), Venter - Lamola.

Ajax Cape Town: Petersen; Zwane, Pietersen, Lebusa, Sasman - Takwara (Gaxa 60'), Malepe, Margeman (Mdabuka 46') - Losper, Morris (Lakay 58'), Ndoro.
