Highlands Two Points Behind Baroka, Mthatha Thrash Milano

There was excitement at both the top and bottom of the National First Division as leaders, Baroka, were held to a 1-1 draw by Mbombela United.
 
Highlands Park beat Witbank Spurs 2-0, while relegation threated Moroka Swallows and Mthatha Bucks recorded victories over FC Cape Town and Milano United respectively.
 
In addition, Black Leopards’ new head coach, Sello Chokoe opened his account with a 2-1 win over African Warriors but the same could not be said for Professor Ngubane, who’s Cape Town All Stars shared the spoils at 1-1 with Royal Eagles.
 
Thanks to two second-half strikes from Zivai Verenga and Mothobi Mvala, the Lions of the North cemented second place at Makhulong, however this result has left Siyavutha three points behind as the fight for two promotional play-off spots increases.
 
Last-placed Birds came from a goal down to snatch a well-earned three points in Parow, where Aleni Lebyane and Clifford Mulenga were their heroes.
 
Although this was only the third win in 24 attempts, it gives the former PSL big wigs, some hope, especially since they’re now only two points behind Warriors.
 
Bucks are also beginning to believe that a great escape is possible following their shock 3-0 home success, which was Eezy my Kinnes’ first loss in five games.
 
Thabiso Mokoena (penalty), Andile Njokweni and Mashale Rantabane netted for the Eastern Cape side.
 
Lidoda Duvha sneaked a win at Thohoyandou with goals from Kgabo Mashiane and Morgan Shivambu.
 
Earlier, Ange Lebahi had given the visitors some hope with the opener but this was Warriors’ 14th loss and unless coach, Thami Ngubane, can produce some magic, his troops look doomed.
 
Igugu Lekapa with a last-minute Thembinkosi Lorch strike, managed to deny Eagles victory at Athlone after showing who was best in the opening period but missing numerous golden opportunities.
 
Eagles, thanks to Lesego Manganyi’s header, remain in a group of five teams that all have a chance of reaching the lucrative PSL.
 
The KZN derby between AmaZulu and Thanda Royal Zulu ended with Amabhubhesi securing a valuable 2-1 win in Durban.
 
Their scorers were Menzi Hlophe and Michael Gumede, while Zaid Patel netted for Usuthu.
 
Vasco da Gama also manged to move away from the drop zone with a 2-0 victory over Santos.
 
Siphesihle Stuurman and Darren Smith netted.
