Goals from Sibusiso Msomi, Tlou Segolale and Robert Ng’ambi took Platinum Stars to a 3-0 win over Polokwane City at Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Sunday.

The result sees Dikwena placed fifth on the Absa Premiership table with 30 points from 17 matches, while Rise and Shine are 13th on 21 points from 18 matches.

After a quiet opening period of the match, Stars claimed the lead on 29 minutes when Msomi tucked home Siyabonga Zulu’s cross with his right foot. It remained 1-0 in favour of the hosts up to half time.

At the start of the second half, City introduced Sipho Jembula from the bench, but it was Dikwena who effectively killed off the game in the 52nd minute when Tlou Segolela scored with his left foot after an assist from Solomon Mathe to make it 2-0.

With just under a quarter hour to play, Stars banged in their third through substitute Robert Ng’ambi to ensure an emphatic victory.
