Kaizer Chiefs went five points clear at the top of the table with a 3-1 win over Bidvest Wits at Mbombela Stadium on Monday evening.
Bernard Parker bundled the ball in at the far post inside 15 minutes, following some good work from George Lebese on the left, and added a second just past the half-hour mark.

But Amakhosi put the result beyond doubt in the 89th minute, when Reneilwe Letsholonyane played a perfect ball to Lehlohonolo Majoro on the right, who calmly slotted past Steven Hoffman.

Ajax Cape Town, who had not beaten Orlando Pirates away since 2008, lost again on Tuesday evening, as Bucs went second with classy goals from Sifiso Myeni and Takesure Chinyama.
Roger de Sa baffled supporters when he started with Thulasizwe Mbuyane up front, supported by three wingers in Myeni, Daine Klate and Tlou Segolela. But while Segolela was off form, Myeni – playing through the middle – and Klate both fired.
Myeni scored in the 55th minute with an excellent strike after a great piece of individual skill.
Chinyama came on as a second-half substitute and was immediately booed by sections of the crowd, but the big Zimbabwean quickly shut the fans up when he turned sharply and powered in a left footed drive in the dying seconds of the game.
