A brace from Khethukuthula Zwane helped 10-man AmaTuks to a 3 - 0 win against Polokwane City and earn AmaTuks their first points in their first match at home at the Tuks Stadium on Saturday 22 August 2015.

In the 31st minute Katjijere won a free kick inside the center circle. He quickly chipped the ball to find Nyondo in the penalty box who then layed it for the onrushing Zwane who slotted it into the top right corner from outside the penalty box to score the first goal of the match. Ten minutes Zwane double the lead after he again received the ball just outside the penalty box and this time his shot was a grass cutter that beat Konopi on his left 

AmaTuks ended the first half the stronger of the two as they took their 2-goal lead into the half time break.

Immediately after the restart Polokwane City went on the attack and second half substitute Shiba caught  AmaTuks defense napping as his shot from the edge of the penalty box hit Arubi's right hand upright. In the 57 minute substitute Nyathi played a long ball to find Nyondo and the keeper came out of his area and cleared straight to Kebede who was staring at an empty net but the linesman had his flag up for off side.

In the 68th minute Kebede beat the offside trap inside the penalty box but did not take the shot, he passed to Nyondo who also delayed his shot and ended up being dispossessed. 

In the 73rd minute Ntombayithethi latched onto a through ball down the middle and ran at the lone center forward, he passed to Nyondo who was on his right, Nyondo chipped the ball over the keeper who had come off his line but Mbonani tracked back and was able to kick the ball away before it crossed the goal line.
