Benni McCarthy's side seemed to have turned the corner before the international break with back-to-back wins n the league.
 
That form carried into their first game after the FIFA break as they broke the deadlock after seven minutes when Thabo Nodada raced into the box and picked out Ayanda Patosi, who calmly fired home a left-footed strike from 12-yards out.
 
The goal seemed to have woken up the home side, with Vusimize Mngomezulu going close with a snapshot on 17 minutes, after catching the City defence napping.
 
Rise and Shine started seeing more of the ball as the first half went on and Salulani Phiri nearly restored parity in the 39th minute, but City goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenburgh produced a top save to keep out the midfielder's stinging effort.
 
The second half continued in the same fashion as the first, with both sides playing an open game, although clear cut chances were hard to come by.
 
However, City found a second goal in the 58th minute when Siphelele Mthembu bagged his fourth of the season with a close-range finish after Nodada's initial effort was saved.
 
It got worse for City 10 just minutes later when Jabulani Maluleke was sent off after picking up his second yellow card of the encounter.
 
However, Polokwane were given a lifeline with 10 minutes remaining after being awarded a penalty, which Mohammed Anas converted to set up a nervy last few minutes.
 
Benni McCarthy's men did however manage to see off a late push from the Polokwane outfit as they claimed a third successive league win.
 

Here's how they lined up:

Polokwane: 30. Ndlovu, 33. Mvelase (Wagaba 73), 22. Mbonani, 24. Hlongwane, 26. Nkili, 16. Mngomezulu, 8. Maluleke, 21. Seabi, 20. Phiri (Tlolane 67'), 15. Musona, 17. Ramagalela.

Subs: 1. Chigova, 25. Sikhosana, 3. Anas, 18. Maluleke, 14. Manaka, 31. Wagaba, 10. Tlolane.

City: 1. Leeuwenburgh, 2. Mkhize, 12. Fielies, 5. Edmilson, 6. Seedat., 19. Putsche, 26. Nodada, 8. Modise, 10. Patosi (Martin 76'), 11. Ralani (Links 70'), 25. Mthembu (Nana 76').
 
Subs: 16. Stephens, 15. Cupido, 30. Martin, 17. Links, 36. Kateregga, 3. Mngonyama, 14. Nana.
