Polokwane pushed for a third goal and were rewarded in the 73rd minute thanks to a strike from Jabu Maluleke. His first goal of the season.
 
The newly promoted outfit pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages, but were unable to carve out a clear-cut opening, as Polokwane held on for the three points.
