Cape Town City climbed to the top of the DStv Premiership summit with their sixth straight win, while Kaizer Chiefs picked up their second victory under Cavin Johnson.

Eric Tinkler’s Cape Town City made it six wins on the spin after beating Golden Arrows 1-0 at the Mpumalanga Stadium on Sunday evening.

Khanyisa Mayo’s deflected goal after just eight minutes proved to be the difference in Hammarsdale as the Citizens went a point clear of Mamelodi Sundowns at the summit, with Abafana Bes’thende unmoved in fourth spot after suffering a third consecutive defeat.

Earlier in the day, Kaizer Chiefs bounced back from their derby disappointment against Orlando Pirates by edging neighbours Moroka Swallows 1-0 at the Dobsonville Stadium.

The Glamour Boys survived an early scare when Gabadinho Mhango struck the outside of the left post from a direct free-kick in the sixth minute, but they eventually made the breakthrough eight minutes from time with Christian Saile popping up to score the winner.

Chiefs climbed up to sixth in the table, one point shy of the Dube Birds (5th), who saw their impressive five-game unbeaten run come to an end.

Meanwhile, Polokwane City began life without Lehlohonolo Seema on a bad note after going down 3-0 to TS Galaxy at the Mbombela Stadium.

The Rockets hit the front through Spiwe Mahlangu (12′) early on before second-half goals from Mpho Mvelase (70′) and Samir Nurkovic (90+3′) secured their first win in four matches, leaving Rise And Shine winless in their last five outings.

In Saturday’s round of matches, Stellenbosch defeated AmaZulu 1-0 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, Richards Bay held Orlando Pirates to a 0-0 draw at the King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium and Royal AM ran out 2-1 victors against Cape Town Spurs at the Cape Town Stadium.
