Rhulani Manzini scored a late winner as Chippa United defeated Baroka FC 2-1 in an Absa Premiership match at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Tuesday.

Chippa started brightly, but found themselves a goal down in the 13th minute when Khunadi Nkoana saw his shot well saved by Daniel Akpeyi, only for Maboke Matlakala to turn home the rebound and make it 1-0 to the visitors.

The Chilli Boys suffered a further blow ten minutes before the break when they were forced into a substitution, with veteran striker Katlego Mashego coming off the bench to replace the injured Mbulelo Wambi.

Mashego almost made an immediate impact with his first sight of goal, sending a shot just wide of the Baroka posts, but on the brink of half time Chippa were able to find an equaliser.

Diamond Thopola provided the assist for midfielder Thamsanqa Sangweni, whose right footed shot beat goalkeeper Avhashona Tshinuna to leave the game at 1-1 heading into the interval.

The second half saw relatively few chances created at either end, and the game looked set to fizzle out for a tame draw. However, in injury time, Rhulani Manzini struck with a superb effort from a free kick to see Chippa claim a 2-1 victory.

The result sees the Eastern Cape side rise to eighth place on the log, now with 19 points from 15 matches. The Limpopo side, meanwhile, remain at the foot of the table with 12 points from 16 matches.
