Dramatic final day in the PSL
AmaTuks survived automatic relegation thanks to a 2-1 win over Golden Arrows.
JOHANNESBURG - AmaTuks survived automatic relegation thanks to a 2-1 win over Golden Arrows on the final day of the 2015/2016 PSL season.
Shaun Bartlett's side scored both goals in the first half, while Arrows pulled one back on the stroke of full-time.
This was a great relief for Bartlett, who says that his side had to believe they could do it, "Everything was in our hands. It was probably the only game of the season where we knew we had to win.
"We gave ourselves a chance to fight another day. The hard work doesn't start now, it started two weeks ago. We always had the belief that we would make it."
Arrows coach Clint Larsen says his team simply weren't good enough, "We're very disappointed, Tuks left it all out there and they really wanted it badly. We needed to match them on fighting spirit in order to get something out of the game. I don't think we deserved to win."
Jomo Cosmos weren't as fortunate as their 3-1 loss to Maritzburg United sees them make a quick return back to the national first division.
In other results, Chiefs were shocked 2-0 by Chippa United, champions Mamelodi Sundowns made sure they ended the season on a winning note, beating Platinum Stars 1-0, while Ajax Cape Town beat Bidvest Wits 1-0 and Orlando Pirates and Supersport United drew 2-2. They'll go head-to-head again next weekend in the final of the Nedbank Cup.
