Despite taking an early lead, Golden Arrows couldn’t stop Mpumalanga Black Aces from increasing their winning Absa Premiership run as they bounced back to win 2-1 on Wednesday night at the King Zwelithini Stadium.

It was Arrows' Namibian international Deon Hotto who gave the visitors an early test but goalkeeper Shu-aib Walters managed to get his hands on the ball.

Then Aces striker Collins Mbesuma's shot was well-handled by Golden Arrows goalkeeper Maximilian Mbaevu who calmly made the save.

Then in the 13th minute Deon Hotto gave Arrows a lead with a left foot finish after an assist from Gladwin Shitolo.

Aces were not about to give up and Mbesuma kept on being making himself heard, and it finally paid off as he found an equalizer in the 32nd minute.

Just four minutes into the second half Mbesuma scored his brace giving Aces a 2-1 lead.

Mabhuti Khanyeza nearly found an equalizer after Hotto had supplied an inviting cross, but Walters managed to make the save. Siyabonga Dube also searched for an equalizer for Arrows, but his shot missed the target.

Then Maximilian Mbaevu did well to deny Lebogang Manyama a goal, but time was not enough as Aces continued with their rich vein of form.
