Dikwena got off to an encouraging start with Kodisang causing a few problems down the flanks, while Robert Ng'ambi went close with a couple efforts from distance.

Mzimela came to Stars' rescue in the 17th minute, as the shot-stopper rushed off his line to thwart to Majoro from close range.

Kodisang continued to menace the City defence and he eventually won Stars a penalty in the 26th minute, however Shu-Aib Walters saved Mzimela's spot-kick.

Stars were made to rue that miss four minutes, later as Thabo Nodada fired home from 25-yards out, but Mzimela should have done better.

Majoro doubled then doubled the visitors' lead in the 42nd minute with a fine header, following a cross from the right flank.

However, Dikwena pulled one back a few moments later courtesy of Enocent Mkhabela's first league goal of the season with a finish from point-blank range.

With Dikwena pushing for an equaliser, Cavin Johnson introduced Ndumiso Mabena for Kodisang after the hour-mark.

However, City grabbed a third goal after 66 minutes as Judas Moseamedi registered his name on the score-sheet shortly after coming on.

Eric Tinkler's charges were in full control and they added a fourth goal in the 75th minute courtesy of a strike from Aubrey Ngoma.

With the Mother City outfit comfortably leading, Tinkler threw on Given Mashikinya for Nodada in the closing stages.

Dikwena did pull a goal back in the dying stages of the second half, as substitute Henrico Botes fired past Walters, 2-4.
