Goals from Milton Ncube and Erwin Isaacs handed Ajax Cape Town a 2-0 win over Chippa United at the Cape Town Stadium on Friday night.
Chippa were presented with the first opportunity of the game, as Ruben Cloete fired wide of the mark from 12-yards out.
Ajax went ahead two minutes later, as Milton Ncube fired home from six-yards out after, Mbongeni Mzimela palmed Franklin Cale's free-kick into the path of the Zimbabwean.
The lead was doubled in the 19th minute, Erwin Isaacs played a neat one-two with Cale before rifling the ball into the top corner from 25-yards out with a fantastic shot.
Roger de Sa certainly went into the halftime break the happier of two managers, as they restricted Chippa United to zero efforts on target.
Chippa eventually registered their first effort on target in the 58th minute, as William Twala forced Anssi Jaakkola into a fine low save.
The visitors continued to push for an opener in the second half but the Ajax defence were resolute and frustrated the Chippa attackers.
The Urban Warriors have now ended a seven-game winless run the league, while Chippa's winless run has now extended to eight games.
