A closer look at Downs' win in pics


Check out the best pictures from Loftus Versfeld, where Mamelodi Sundowns gained ground on log leaders Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday afternoon.

Sundowns made light work of Chippa United during their Absa Premiership clash this weekend, dishing out a 3-0 whipping at their home ground in Tshwane.

Nicholus Lukhubeni, in just his third appearance, opened the scoring in under two minutes as Themba Zwane and Sibusiso Vilakazi also got in on the action in the second half to see out The Brazilians' 11th victory of the season.

The scoreline could have been much worse for The Chilli Boys, had it not been for goalkeeper Veli Mothwa and some wastefulness in the final third from Downs.

The win saw Pitso Mosimane's charges move three points closer to Chiefs, cutting their lead to just seven points while the reigning league champions still have a game in hand.

23-year-old Lukhubeni ultimately walked away with his first man of the match award in the PSL, having been promoted at the start of the season.
