SuperSport United claimed their first win Absa Premiership win since the opening weekend of the season and snapped a four-game losing streak by beating Chippa United 2-0 on Tuesday night.

Clayton Daniels and Jeremy Brockie scored the goals at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, securing a result which eases the pressure on coach Gordon Igesund and denies the Chilli Boys a hat-trick of victories.

Chippa had the first clear sight of goal, with Mark Mayambela presented with a chance in the 20th minute, but United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams produced a fine save to keep the score line blank.

A short while later James Okwuosa got on the end of Nkosinathi Mthiyane’s corner kick, but he was unable to direct his header on target, with the Chilli Boys continuing to search for an early lead.

Instead it was SuperSport who broke the deadlock late in the half, with defender Clayton Daniels finding the back of the net with a well-placed header from Thuso Phala’s corner kick in the 41st minute.

Chippa made two attacking changes early in the second half, sending on Lerato Manzini and Kuduku Maleasenya, but they nearly went two goals down just past the hour mark when Phala played a one-two and looked likely to score until the intervention of goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.

The second goal from United finally arrived in the 85th minute when Jeremy Brockie showed great technique to finish off a cross from Phala, securing the win and three precious points for the Tshwane side.

The victory takes SuperSport from 14th on the log to 11th, with eight points from as many matches. Chippa drop one place to 10th with 10 points from eight matches.
