Soweto giants Kaizer Chiefs and Swallows FC got mixed results in the 2021/22 DStv Premiership matchday seven.

Chiefs snapped their four-match winless run in the league in style as they thumped Chippa United 4-0 at FNB Stadium with Keagan Dolly producing a Man of the Match performance on Saturday.

Dolly grabbed a first-half brace, before registering an assist after the restart as the Soweto giants climbed up to eighth place on the league standings, while Chippa slipped down to 14th place on the table.

One match was played on Sunday with Stellenbosch FC fighting back to hold Swallows FC to a 1-1 draw in a game which was played at the 2010 FIFA World Cup training ground, Dobsonville Stadium.

Ruzaigh Gamildien opened the scoring goal to hand Amaswaiswai the lead, but Dean Van Rooyen level matters, and the draw saw Stellies move up to third place on the log, while Swallows remained 13th on the standings.

On Saturday, SuperSport United maintained their unbeaten start in the league when they secured a 2-0 victory over Baroka FC with Ghampani Lungu grabbing a quick second-half brace at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

The comfortable victory saw Matsatsantsa remain second on the standings, but they are now a point behind leaders, Mamelodi Sundowns and Baroka moved down to the 10th spot on the log.

While Sekhukhune United made it two victories in a row after claiming a narrow 1-0 win over Cape Town City at the Emirates Airline Park in another game which was played on Saturday.

Chibuike Ohizu’s fourth goal of the season earned Sekhukhune the victory and the Limpopo side climbed up to fifth place on the log and the defeat left City in 12th place on the table.
