VICTOR KUMWENDA, Lusaka
STRIKER Bornwell Mwape on Tuesday steered AmaZulu to the Nedbank Cup pre-quarter finals.
Mwape, who is the National First Division (NFD) outfits top scorer, opened the scoring in a 4-1 thrashing of Thanda Royal Zulu.
AmaZulu got off to a blistering start as Mwape struck with a close range effort after latching onto Tshepo Liphoko cross.
Mwape was withdrawn two minutes from time while midfielder Allan Mukuka was rested in the 65th minute.
Mukuka is on loan from Super Division Green Buffaloes.
With the win, AmaZulu secured one of the eight NFD slots for the Nedbank Cup.
