Posted: 17 December 2016 Time: 13:48
Chippa United returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over struggling Highlands Park at Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Saturday.
The Chilli Boys, who lost 1-0 at Polokwane City on Wednesday, prevailed this time via strikes either side of the break from strikers Katlego Mashego and Lerato Manzini.
Thamsanqa Sangweni nearly gave the hosts an early lead but his free-kick struck the upright five minutes in.
Chippa, however, stole ahead in the 25th minute when Mashego's free-kick from range took a heavy deflection and found the net.
Manzini put the result beyond little doubt with another goal in the 74th minute in Mdantsane.
Dan Malesela's side are in mid-table with 16 points from 13 matches - four points ahead of 14th-placed Highlands.
Chippa will end the year against Ajax Cape Town at Cape Town Stadium on December 21, while the Lions of the North will host Platinum Stars next week.
