Marumo was able to pull off a hard-fought victory over the Rockets in the end.
Marumo came into the game in 15th place in the log table, having collected only eight points from 11 games played so far.
The club was level on points with Swallows FC, who are currently occupying the bottom two positions in the DStv Premiership rankings.
Gallants managed to climb all the way up to 12th place, one spot below Maritzburg United, as a result of their victory on Saturday evening.
It was possible for the club to overtake a total of three teams, including Baroka FC, TS Galaxy, and Chippa United, in the process.
The relegation playoff spot has been taken by Baroka after 11 games played so far this season. The club currently has eight points.
With the setback this evening, Galaxy fell to 14th place in the standings with only nine points after 13 games played so far this season.
After 11 games, Chippa United has slid to the 13th position with a total of 10 points.
In their first 12 games, Gallants have amassed a total of 11 points, and the club's mission this season will be to escape relegation under the guidance of Dan Malisela, who has recently been named as coach.
Tomorrow, the 2nd of December, will see Baroka take on Orlando Pirates in yet another midweek matchup.
Baroka will go into the game with the goal of gaining three points in order to move out of the danger zone.
Pirates, on the other hand, will be aiming for third place if they manage to win by more than two goals.
A victory for Pirates would move the team above Sekhukhune United, Supersport United, Stellenbosch FC, and Royal AM on the log standings if the club were to win today.
Meanwhile, a win for Baroka will elevate the Limpopo-based club to the 12th position, moving them above Galaxy, Chippa United, and Gallants, who have all recently secured the 12th position.
