Just two days after sacking Shaun Bartlett, Cape Town Spurs suffered their eighth defeat of the season, while Kaizer Chiefs continued to struggle under Molefi Ntseki.

Five matches took place in midweek and the action got underway on Tuesday when Cape Town City beat Kaizer Chiefs 1-0 at the FNB Stadium.

Khanyisa Mayo’s 58th-minute goal settled the contest as the Citizens went three games unbeaten to climb up to sixth in the standings, two points clear of the Glamour Boys (8th), who suffered their fourth defeat of the season.

Then on Wednesday, Stellenbosch halted a five-game winless run with a 3-0 success against TS Galaxy at the Danie Craven Stadium.

Goals from Thabo Moloisane (13′), Devin Titus (30′) and Antonio Van Wyk (65′) secured a third win of the campaign for the Maroons (10th) as they went a point clear of the Rockets (12th).

Cape Town Spurs threw away a lead for the third game running as SuperSport United battled back to emerge 2-1 victors at Athlone Stadium.

The rock-bottom Urban Warriors hit the front through Therlo Moosa after just five minutes, but a brace from Bradley Grobler (35′, 86′) handed Matsatsantsa their third win in five outings to close within eight points of Mamelodi Sundowns in second spot.

Elsewhere, Moroka Swallows (3rd) and Chippa United (7th) played out to a 0-0 draw at the Dobsonville Stadium, while Polokwane City (5th) edged Richards Bay (15th) 1-0 at the King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium courtesy of Mokibelo Ramabu’s 45th-minute goal.
