Bhongolwethu Jayiya and Aubrey Ngoma scored a goal apiece to see Cape Town City to a 2-0 victory over Polokwane City in their debut Absa Premiership match on Tuesday.

The newly-formed club have even leaped to the top of the log standings on goal difference, with their win at the Cape Town Stadium the only one of the night by a two-goal margin.

The first half saw little action and looked set to end goalless, but in injury time Bhongolwethu Jayiya smashed a left-footed effort into the back of the net to break the deadlock in favour of the hosts.

Rise and Shine started the second half strongly, with Puleng Tlolane again looking threatening in attack, though goalkeeper Samora Motloung was generally untroubled thanks to the efforts of his defenders.

CTC reacted to Polokwane’s strong start in the second stanza by sending on two substitutes around the hour mark, with Lebogang Manyama and Judas Moseamedi replacing James Brown and Majoro respectively.

Manyama had a quick impact on the game, providing the assist for the home side’s second goal which saw Aubrey Ngoma provide a neat finish into the bottom corner of the net on 69 minutes to put clear daylight between themselves and the visitors.
