National First Division log leaders, Highlands Park, and promotion hopefuls, Black Leopards, both recorded good 4-0 victories over lowly Royal Eagles and Ubuntu Cape Town respectively, while Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC (TTM) grabbed second spot after overpowering Mthatha Bucks 1-0.
In addition, there were wins for University of Pretoria, Witbank Spurs, Mbombela United and Stellenbosch.
Thanks to Chris Komane, Mothobi Mvalo, Sphiwe Mahlangu and Thabo Motlafi, the Lions of the North opened up an 8-point lead.
Lidoda Duvha moved up to 6th spot following goals from Karabo Tshepe (2), Joseph Mhlongo and Meshack Maphangule which leaves Ubuntu rock bottom.
TTM leapfrogged both Ezenkosi and Kings after Themba Ndlovu’s winner.
AmaTuks stunned Jomo Cosmos when Ritchi Sebastiao netted a late winner to give his team renewed hope after a poor run.
Siyavutha are also in with a chance of reaching the play-offs after downing Real Kings 2-1 at home via successful efforts from Thabo Makhele and Quentin Debouto, while Lindokuhle Mtshali netted for the losers.
Mbombela and Stellenbosch returned to winning ways with tight-fought 1-0 wins over Super Eagles and Uthongathi respectively.
Tshediso Patjie was on target for Ashwin Sutton’s side and Iqraam Rayners’ goal at the Princess Magogo Stadium helped the Cape team jump four places.
The match between Richards Bay and Cape Town All Stars ended goalless.

@setlaboswana ...long way to go. Witbank Spurs, Jomo Cosmos, TTM and Leopards can claim that automatic promotion spot. Second round is tough. Anything can happen.
