The hosts enjoyed an encouraging start, but it was City who broke the deadlock after seven minutes as Lehlohonolo Majoro volleyed home from close range, after a poor clearance from Clayton Daniels.

SuperSport looked to hit back straight away and went close through Thuso Phala and Michael Boxall, but Shu-Aib Walters produced a couple fine saves to keep the hosts at bay.

The hosts controlled proceedings for most of the opening stanza, although their final ball was not up to par to threaten City's vulnerable defence.

However, Stuart Baxter's charges eventually leveled matters in the 30th minute when Thuso Phala played in Thabo Mnyamane, who knocked the ball beyond Walters and slotted into an empty net, 1-1.

The home side continued to dominate as the first half went on, although they struggled to carve out chances in the remaining stages of the stanza as the score remained 1-1 at the break.

SuperSport did not have to wait long for the go ahead goal in the second half, as Walters' failed on to Mnyamane's free-kick in the box, where Clayton Daniels was on hand to poke home in the 49th minute.

Daniels then went from hero to villain in the 65th minute when he was adjudged to have brought down Majoro in the box, handing the visitors a penalty. Lebogang Manyama stepped up made no mistake from the spot, 2-2.

Baxter was forced into a change after 70 minutes when Mnyamane was forced off after collision with Ebrahim Seedat. 

Mnyamane's replacement, Aubrey Ngoma, wasted no time in making an impact, as he latched onto a pass from Phala before teeing up Brockie for the simple tap-in in the 74th minute.

Eric Tinkler threw on Bhongolwethu Jayiya for the final 12 minutes as they pushed for an equaliser in the closing stages.

However, it was Phala who put the game beyond City in stoppage time, as the winger tapped home from close range after being teed up by Teboho Mokoena, 4-2.
