DURBAN, South Africa (AP) -AmaZulu beat Manchester City 2-1 with an 89th-minute penalty on Thursday to leave last season's Premier League runner-up with two losses from two games on its pre-season tour of South Africa.

Carlington Nyadombo hit the winner from the spot after the top-flight team led in the 20th minute through striker Bongani Ndulula. James Milner equalized at Durban's Moses Mabhida World Cup stadium with a crisp volley six minutes later, City's first goal on tour.

The deposed English champion showed more rhythm late in the first half, with new Brazilian signing Fernandinho grazing the crossbar soon after Milner's goal. Substitute Jack Rodwell slammed a shot straight at AmaZulu's `keeper early in the second.

City, which lost 2-0 to Supersport United, was without new coach Manuel Pellegrini, who left the tour early.
