Over the past weekend, the long-awaited return of the DStv Premiership was finally over, following a long FIFA break which saw Bafana Bafana lose to Ghana, albeit in a controversial fashion, in their last Group match for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Chippa United, following head coach Gavin Hunt’s suspension, recorded only their second win so far this season in what was Kurt Lentjies’ first game in charge of the Gqeberha-based club. The 1-0 win away to Baroka FC ended the team’s nine-game winless run in the league. TS Galaxy also returned to winning ways when they beat Swallows FC 1-0 to move away from the basement while Marumo Gallants also recorded an impressive 2-1 win away to SuperSport United to give new coach, Dan Malesela a victory on his debut on the bench.
On the other hand, Kaizer Chiefs continued with their winning streak when they beat Maritzburg United 1-0 in their own backyard on Sunday evening. While Mamelodi Sundowns played to a goalless draw away to Cape Town City, Orlando Pirates also failed to find the back of the net against Golden Arrows in their goalless draw.
