In addition, Magesi FC moved out moved out of the drop zone on goal difference following a 6-0 demolition of Real Kings and Milano United shocked high-flying Stellenbosch 1-0 in Parow.
 
Lebogang Mabotja was Lidoda Duvha’s hero at the Tuks Stadium, where Shaun Bartlett’s outfit almost netted in the first half but Kyle Koert’s shot was well saved.
 
Ezenkosi took an early lead however, Usuthu fought back gallantly with goals from Augustine Ramphela (2), the veteran, Siyabonga Nomvethe (2) and Lungelo Dlamini which has given the KZN team a very good chance of also reaching the play-offs.

Stellenbosch played most of the second 45 minutes with only ten men after Brent Adonis was shown a second yellow for a reckless challenge.
 
Already-relegated Santos shocked Witbank Spurs 1-0 at Athlone, while Mthatha Bucks recorded a similar win over Cape Town All Stars.
