Golden Arrows handed Mamelodi Sundowns their second defeat of the season as they beat the Brazilians 2-1 in their Absa Premiership encounter at the Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday.

It was Mabhuti Khanyeza who gave the homes side a lead through a penalty in the fifth minute after goalkeeper Onyango had committed a foul inside the box.

In the eight minute Zikalala made a double save denying Billiat an equalizer as Mamelodi Sundowns started to attack.

As if that wasn't enough as Sundowns were trying to search for an equalizer, but Bongani Zungu received his second yellow card which saw him leaving the field and the visitors chasing with ten men.

In the 45th minute Onyago denied Shitolo an opportunity to double the score before the half time as he made a good save to his right.

This saw Arrows going into a half time break with a 1-0 lead.

In the second half, Zwane proved to be a super sub as he had come in for Malajila giving the Brazilians an equalizer with his right foot finish, 1-1.

Substitute Ryan Chapman, who had come in for Fikizolo, almost scored with his first touch as well, but his long strike went over the crossbar.

After all the hard work Chapman was rewarded as he scored Arrows' second goal with a great finish in the 70th minute, 2-1.

In the last ten minutes Arendse came close to finding an equalizer but his header went wide.

Billiat and substitute Fiston Abduol Razak tried to push for an equalizer, but the Arrows defence was solid and this saw the Durban outfit retaining their winning ways.
