Supersport share the spoils as Sekhukhune secure big win

Sekhukhune United snapped a two-game losing streak in impressive fashion in Saturday's DStv Premiership action, while Supersport United and Royal AM played out to an entertaining draw.

SuperSport and Royal AM share the spoils

SuperSport United's hopes of securing all three points were dashed by a resolute Royal AM side in a tightly contested match at Chatsworth Stadium on Saturday.

Despite Bradley Grobler's 99th top-flight goal, the Pretoria-based club were held to a 1-1 draw.

SuperSport brought back their regulars, including Grobler, after a disappointing Nedbank Cup loss against Dondol Stars. The game remained cagey in the early stages until Grobler headed home a cross by Patrick Maswanganyi, putting United in the lead.

However, the home side were determined to fight back and found the equalizer through Kabelo Mahlasela just before half-time.

In the second half, SuperSport looked to restore their lead, with Zakhele Lepasa and Grant Margeman both forcing saves out of Royal AM's goalkeeper Hugo Nyame.

United coach Gavin Hunt made a double-attacking change just after the hour-mark, bringing on Gamphani Lungu and Thamsanqa Gabuza, but the match remained in the balance until the final whistle.

The draw leaves SuperSport in second place on the league table with 33 points, while Royal AM sits in seventh place with 25 points.

Sekhukhune back to winning ways against Richards Bay

Sekhukhune United moved up to sixth position in the standings thanks to a 2-0 win over Richards Bay at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The two sides remained locked at 0-0 until the half-time break, but Pogiso Mahlangu changed that four minutes after the restart as he put the hosts in front after getting the assist from Nyiko Mobbie.

Sekhukhune were flying now, and Chibuike Ohizu doubled the advantage only three minutes later to knock the stuffing out of the visitors.

Try as they might, Richards Bay couldn't recover from there, as Sekhukhune marched towards all three points to snap a two-game losing streak.

Galaxy rocket past AmaZulu in Durban

TS Galaxy picked up their second win in three matches as they came away from the Moses Mabhida Stadium with all three points thanks to a 2-1 victory over AmaZulu.

Djakaridja Traore was the hero for the visitors on the day, converting on either side of half-time to put his side in the pound seats.

Usuthu gave themselves a chance of salvaging something out of the match when Junior Dion halved the deficit in the 84th minute, but with just minutes left on the clock, there wasn't enough time to grab an equaliser, as Galaxy hung on for the win that lifts them up to seventh on the table.
