Chippa United 2-0 Roses United

Chippa United got back to winning ways when they beat Roses United 2-0 at Philippi Stadium on Friday night.

It did not take long for the home side to take the lead, through Rudiger Gilbert.

The former Free State Stars defender opened the scoring within 10 minutes, when his free-kick from outside the box found the back of the net.

The game went into half-time with the Chilli Boys holding the lead, and it was well into the second half when a long-range effort from George Akpabio beat Roses United goalkeeper Seun Dlamini.

Chippa could have extended their lead but wasted plenty of opportunities in front of goal and the game ended 2-0 to the home side.

The Chilli Boys’ move up to 10 points while Roses United remain on nine.

Milano United 2-0 Witbank Spurs

High-flying Milano United recorded their fifth straight win when they beat a determined Witbank Spurs 2-0 at Wynburg Military Stadium.

Milano had to wait until the second half to score the first goal of the day, when Brandon Theron hit home after Spurs goalkeeper Briace Msiza failed to hold on to the ball inside the box.

Milano’s top scorer from last season, Lesvin Stoffels, marked his return to action with the second.

The victory keeps Milano on top of the table with 15 points while Spurs move down to seventh place with seven points.

Black Leopards 0-1 Blackburn Rovers

Black Leopards’ poor start to the season continued as the Limpopo base side lost 1-0 to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday afternoon.

It was Rovers second win of the season, thanks to Mxolisi Macuphu’s goal.

Leopards are still without a win after six games and are currently on four points, 14th on the log. Rovers move up to ninth with seven points.

Maluti FET Collage 0-0 Vasco da Gama

Maluti hosted Vasco da Gama at Charles Mopeli Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The hosts were looking to build on their previous win over Blackburn Rovers, however it was not to be as both teams failed to find the back of the net.

Maluti are sixth on eight points while Vasco are 11th on six.

Sivutsa Stars 1-0 Thanda Royal Zulu

Sivutsa Stars secured their second victory of the season when they beat Thanda Royal Zulu 1-0.

FC Cape Town 0-2 Baroka FC

Baroka FC beat bottom-of-the-log FC Cape Town in their first game back since their car accident last month.

Former Moroka Swallows striker Mpho Maleka got the first goal, while Gift Motupa scored the second.

Baroka are seventh on eight points while FC Cape Town remain on two.

United FC 2-2 Santos

Santos came back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 against United FC.

The home side were leading thanks to an Mbulelo Wambi brace but failed to hold onto the advantage, allowing Santos to come back at them.

With 15 minutes to go substitute Gregory Roelf scored for the visitors and then equalised in injury time.

United move to fourth on eight points while Santos move to eighth on six.
