Mamelodi Sundowns opened a nine-point gap between themselves and the chasing pack with a 2-0 win over Sekhukhune United at ABSA Tuks Stadium on Saturday.

The defending league champions remain unbeaten after 12 matches in the 2021/22 DStv Premiership season and well on course to another title.

Goals from Neo Maema and Themba Zwane either side of the half-time break navigated the Brazilians back to winning ways in rainy conditions, but they suffered a blow late on when Denis Onyango received his marching orders for a cynical foul.

As a result, the shot-stopper will miss the next few league games.

Elsewhere, TS Galaxy came from behind on two occasions to draw 2-2 with Cape Town City at Mbombela Stadium.

The result leaves the two clubs in 13th and ninth place on the 2021/22 league standings respectively with the Rockets now a point above the relegation zone.

Wayde Lekay netted in the 89th minute to earn the Rockets a point after Mduduzi Mdantsane twice gave the visitors the lead.

The Citizens midfielder opened the scoring within the first minute of the match before a Mxolisi Macuphu equaliser two minutes later. The towering forward has now scored against City in three consecutive matches.
