Unbeaten Masandawana Move Nine Points Clear At The Top

Mamelodi Sundowns extended their lead at the top of the DStv Premiership to nine points after defeating Sekhukhune United 2-0 on Saturday afternoon. Sundowns' front line remained intact from the dramatic draw with SuperSport United, with Peter Shalulile and Pavol Safranko leading the way, while Sekhukhune were bolstered by the return of their top striker Chibuike Ohizu.

The Brazilians dominated the opening exchanges, and Neo Maema created the first serious chance in the 16th minute with a curling shot that dropped narrowly past the bar. After a knockdown by Peter Shalulile, Maema broke the stalemate for the hosts five minutes later with a brilliant half-volley inside the box into the top corner. After that, Babina Noko began to surge forward, but their offensive zeal rapidly waned, and they were unable to trouble Sundowns shot-stopper Denis Onyango for the majority of the first 45 minutes. However, Sundowns were reduced to ten men five minutes before time after Onyango was sent off for bringing down Tshidiso Patjie, who was through on goal.
