All Stars Open A Two-Point Lead

Cape Town All Stars opened up to two-point lead at the top of the National First Division table following a 1-0 win over African Warriors, big-spending Royal Eagles final got their show on the road beating AmaZulu 2-1, while there were also victories for ex-PSL bigwigs, Moroka Swallows and Black Leopards.
 
Igugu Lekapa, thanks to a great header from James Mofokeng, grabbed their third success on the trot, but the same cannot be said for Usuthu, who lost for the first time after Uhuru Mwambungu’s late winner.
 
Eagles opened the scoring just before half time via Zukhile Mkhize, Marc van Heerden then levelled matters however, Vladislav Heric’s side finished the stronger to overtake their KZN rivals on goal difference.
 
Winless Highlands Park slumped to their first defeat after the Birds’ James Bell netted a solitary strike at Dobsonville Stadium, where fans are beginning to believe in the possibility of a quick return to the PSL.
 
Lidoda Duvha are also on a roll just behind All Stars after overpowering Mthatha Bucks 2-0 in the Eastern Cape. Goals from Morgan Shivambu and Thembisani Nevhulamba means Julius Dube’s outfit remains in the drop zone as does FC Cape Town.
 
Despite the hype surrounding the African Beasts big sponsorship deal with Investec Bank, they could only manage a goalless draw with Milano United.
 
Vasco da Gama held Baroka FC 1-1 in Limpopo, a result that keeps Bakgaga in the top three but a controversial penalty expertly saved by visiting goalkeeper, Steven Hoffman, was the main talking point.
 
Both goals were scored in the first period, Thabiso Kutumela hitting his fourth goal of the campaign early on prior to Khotso Chabeli’s equaliser.
 
Another match ending all square (2-2) was the exciting clash at Athlone between Santos and Thanda Royal Zulu that turned out to be a see-saw encounter.
 
First Carl Lark netted for the People’s Team but Amabhubhesi then struck twice through Sakhile Khubeka and a Lindokuhle Holideyi penalty but just when fans were giving up, Faizel Johnson produced a fantastic bicycle kick to salvage a precious point.
 
A late goal by Cleopas Dube ensured a well-earned 1-0 victory for Witbank Spurs over Mbombela United.
