Cape Town City got off to the perfect start when Aubrey Ngoma opened the scoring from a pin-point free-kick in the first minute of the match, 1-0.

It got even better for the side from the Mother City when they doubled their lead five minutes later following a long ball from the back which saw Lehlohonolo Majoro through on goal and he made no mistake with just the keeper to beat, 2-0.

Polokwane, though, were not going to go down without a fight and began mounting their comeback with Jabulani Maluleke pulling a goal back in the 18th minute from another well-taken free-kick, 2-1.

Polokwane continued to push forward and managed to level matter five minutes before the break when Thabiso Semenya turned home a pass from Sipho Jembula to make it 2-2 going into the break.

Six minutes into the second half Polokwane took the lead when Sibusiso Mbonani headed home a corner-kick from Jabulani Maluleke, 3-20.

In the 55th minute Shu-Aib Walters had to be at his best to keep his side in the game when the Cape Town City goalkeeper made a fingertip save to deny Simphiwe Hlongwane from the edge of the box.

Polokwane did manage to double their lead in the 69th minute when Vusimusi Mngomezulu found the back of the net following a well-worked passing move, 4-2.

Cape Town City tried to find their way back into the match, but Polokwane defended stoically in the final twenty minutes to hang on for the come-from-behind victory.
