Polokwane City have taken a massive step towards Absa Premiership safety after a 1-0 win against Black Leopards in a promotion play-off match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night.
Vukile Mngqibisa proved to be the hero for Boebie Solomons’ men, netting a header on the half-hour mark for the three crucial points.
In a game of very few clear-cut chances, Poleng Tloane came closest to second in the dying stages when his volley skidded inches wide.
Polokwane City move to the top of the standings with four points after two matches, followed by Leopards on three and Milano United on one.
