hlompho-kekana-mamelodi-sundownsMamelodi Sundowns remain at the top of the Absa Premiership standings, despite dropping two points during their fixture against Golden Arrows at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

Despite a plethora of opportunities being produced throughout that fixture, Sundowns were unable to breach the opposition defence in a 0-0 stalemate.

Sundowns remain seven points clear of Bidvest Wits, who are still second in the league standings. Two goals from Thulani Hlatshwayo helped the Clever Boys emerge unscathed during their fixture against the University of Pretoria in Johannesburg on Friday night.

A 61st minute equaliser from Thabo Mnyamane kept Tuks in the contest for most of the second half and with just three minutes to play it looked like the visitors would be able to walk away with a point. However, Hlatshwayo was having none of it as he sealed a late win for Gavin Hunt’s side.

Kaizer Chiefs continued with their resurgence in the league, when they beat SuperSport United 2-1 on Saturday. Second half goals from George Maluleka and William Twala secured the result for the home team, competing in front of their Cape Town fans. An 83rd minute equaliser from Jeremy Brockie kept the visitors in the contest for five minutes but Twala’s goal cancelled that out with two minutes to play.
