PSL Absa Premiership match report Cape Town City vs Maritzburg United

Posted: 22 November 2016 Time: 18:30

Cape Town City inched a point clear of Bidvest Wits at the summit with a 3-2 win over Maritzburg United at Athlone Stadium on Tuesday night.

In a see-saw contest, Brian Onyango struck six minutes in from close range for the visitors following a cross from the right by Zimbabwean forward Evans Rusike.

City striker Lehlohonolo Majoro equalised with a tap-in midway through the first stanza to make it 1-1 at the break.

Sibusiso Masina nudged the hosts in front straight after the interval by calmly putting away Given Mashikinya's delivery from the left.

The lead, though, was short-lived as Rusike hit back in the 54th minute with a fine free-kick past goalkeeper Samora Motloung.

Lebogang Manyama, however, responded when he converted a cross from Aubrey Ngoma in the 75th minute.

Eric Tinkler's side held on for their sixth straight win in all competitions despite the late dismissal of defender Robyn Johannes for a second bookable offence.

The new franchise have 20 points from 10 matches - double the tally of mid-table Maritzburg.
