Saturday’s DStv Premiership Results

Kaizer Chiefs picked up their second successive win, while Swallows FC returned to second spot, as six DStv Premiership games were played on Saturday.

Log leaders Mamelodi Sundowns drew 0-0 with SuperSport United, but remain ahead of Swallows on goal difference.

SuperSport Utd 0-0 Mamelodi Sundowns

It ended goalless at the Lucas Masterpieces Moripe Stadium, between SuperSport and Sundowns.

It was an entertaining Tshwane derby between two teams who started the game number one and two in the league, with Sundowns dominating possession in the opening half. However neither team were able to create clear cut chances, and it was level at the break.

Themba Zwane should have put Sundowns into the lead in the 54th minute, but Ronwen Williams made himself big, and Zwane volleyed over from close range.

Two minutes later Dennis Onyango was called into action, as he saved from Bradley Grobler’s header.

But no matter how hard they tried the goals wouldn’t come and both teams had to be happy with a point.

Golden Arrows 1-0 TTM

Golden Arrows picked up a good 1-0 win over TTM at home on Saturday afternoon, as they maintained their unbeaten start to the season.

Arrows were in the lead in the 18th minute, when Velemseni Ndwandwe (in his 50th game) got onto the end of ball in the box and made no mistake.

Ten minutes later TTM were reduced to ten men as Joseph Malongoane was sent off for a tackle on Pule Mmodi.

Arrows held on to their lead, to pick up their fourth win of the season.

TS Galaxy 0-1 Chippa Utd

Chippa handed Owen Da Gama a loss in his first game in charge of TS Galaxy, as the visitors won 1-0 at the Mbombela Stadium.

Frederic Nsabiyumva gave Chippa an early lead when he headed in from a corner in the 4th minute.

Dan Malesela’s team held on to that early lead for an important win against the coach’s former team.

Bloemfontein Celtic 1-1 Stellenbosch

Bloem Celtic and Stellenbosch played to a 1-1 draw at the Dr Petrus Molemela Stadium.

Lelethu Skelem, having just come back into the Stellenbosch team, put the visitors into the lead just before halftime.

Celtic were level in the 57th minute, Menzi Masuku finding the back of the net for Siwelele with a deflected shot.

Baroka 0-1 Swallows

Swallows returned to second place on the league table when they beat Baroka 1-0 at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Swallows were given in penalty in the 57th minute, and Ruzaigh Gamildien made no mistake, to give the Birds the lead.

Cape Town City 1-2 Kaizer Chiefs

Chiefs’ revival continued as they picked up a second successive win, beating City in Cape Town.

Nkosingiphile Ngcobo gave Chiefs the early lead in the 7th minute. City weren’t able to clear their lines, and Ngcobo’s first time shot with the outside of his boot left Peter Leeuwenburgh helpless.

Happy Mashiane made it two in the 19th minute. Samir Nurkovic sent Mashiane clear, and he did well to round the goalkeeper and finish.

Daniel Akpeyi made a superb save early in the second half to deny Fagrie Lakay from close range, as City pushed for a way back into the game.

Mdu Mdantsane should have pulled one back in the 70th minute but his shot struck the upright and bounced clear.

Lakay finished off an excellent City move in the 83rd minute, a back heel from Charles Zulu setting him up.

Craig Martin almost found the equaliser in the 94th minute but narrowly missed as it shaved the post, and Chiefs held out for the three points, and move up to eighth.
