A minute after the restart and substitute Ruzaigh Gamildien doubled the hosts lead, the midfielder slotted past Tshepo Motsoeneng after being played in by Bonginkosi Macala.
 
After a quiet spell in the game Ndulula tried his luck from the edge of the area in the 69th minute, but the striker fired his effort straight at Motsoeneng.
 
Henyekane squandered a great chance in the 78th minute as the man on loan from Mamelodi Sundowns headed wide from close range.
 
Two minutes later and Henyekane pulled one back for stars in the 80th minute with calm finish from inside the area.
