Atusaye Nyondo scored for University of Pretoria on Wednesday night to join Robert Ng’ambi on five goals and become joint top scoring Malawians in the South Africa Absa Premiership.
The on-loan Nyondo and Thabo Mnyamane scored for the club that is affectionately called the Tuks as they lost 3-2 at home to Maritzburg United who scored through Kurt Lentjies, Mario Booysen and Bongolethu Jajiya.
“Nyondo opened the scoring for the hosts in the 14th minute as Massa’s precise cross was turned into the goal by the Malawian marksman from close range,” reported www.supersport.com.
The Tuks are 11th on the table on 17 points, way behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs who edged out SuperSport United 1-0 also on Wednesday night through top scorer Benard Parker’s ninth league goal in 17 matches.
Supersport owns Nyondo but loaned him out to the university side.
