Cape Town City beat Highlands Park 3-0 in an Absa Premiership game which was played at the Cape Town Stadium in Cape Town on Tuesday night.

As a result City moved up to position two on the league log, while struggling Highlands stay 15th on the table.

It took only five minutes for Lebogang Manyama to fire City into the lead with good strike from the edge of the box to make it 1-0 to the home side.

The Citizens continued their dominance and they made it 2-0 through debutant Letsie Koapeng, who beat Highlands goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini.

The score was 2-0 to City during the half-time break thanks two well-taken goals by City captain Manyama and new signing Koapeng.

Kapini, the former Zimbabwe international was kept very busy by the City attackers in the second-half as the home side searched for more goals.

The 32-year-old keeper was beaten in the 89th minute by Judas Moseamedi, who scored with his right-foot with Aubrey Ngoma providing an assist.

The goal sealed City's 3-0 victory on the night as Highlands were unable to grab a late consolation goal in stoppage time.
