One match remains in the fourth matchday of South Africa’s DStv Premiership after four matches took place on Friday and Saturday with Royal AM hosting TS Galaxy to wrap up the weekend on Sunday. Kaizer Chiefs and head coach Molefi Ntseki took some of the heavy pressure off themselves with a solid victory on Saturday while SuperSport United held off a Stellenbosch side that aims to compete with the country’s best.
For Kaizer Chiefs the heat was fully on ahead of their match against AmaZulu but Amakhosi and coach Ntseki can relax for at least a bit following a 3-0 victory. Striker Pule Mmodi, acquired from Golden Arrows before the season, struck twice for his first goals at the Soweto club. Venezuelan playmaker Edson Castillo finished the scoring for Chiefs who still did not look overly convincing but took their chances well on the day.
SuperSport United have done well to establish themselves as one of South Africa’s best clubs despite lacking the ability to sign big stars like Chiefs, Mamelodi Sundowns and Orlando Pirates. Matsatsantsa showed why they have remained successful in the league under experienced head coach Gavin Hunt with an excellent 2-1 victory away from home against Stellenbosch FC. Ghampani Lungu converted a penalty kick early in the second half and Grant Margeman scored late on to overcome an opening goal from Stellenbosch’s Jayden Adams in the first half giving SuperSport some revenge for their MTN 8 quarterfinal defeat two weeks earlier.
Golden Arrows also came back from a deficit to defeat Polokwane City at home in an exciting 3-2 victory while Chippa United earned valuable points away from home with a win at pointless Cape Town Spurs.
Highlights from all three matches on Saturday are below following the scores.
