Absa Premiership leaders Ajax Cape Town restored their four point lead at the head of the table after a 1-0 win over struggling Jomo Cosmos at Orkney Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Second placed SuperSport United had cut the gap to just one point last night following their 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs, but with this win the Urban Warriors confirmed their credentials as championship contenders.
Defender Dikulu Bageta's early goal settled the hard fought encounter between two sides who are having markedly different fortunes in South Africa's top flight lead.
Bageta struck direct from a 20-yard free kick in the 10th minute after a handball by Cosmos' Bonginkosi Macala.
The rest of the match was evenly contested and goalkeepers Avril Phali and Hans Vonk both had some anxious moments as their respective opponents threatened to add to the score line.
