THO­HOYAN­DOU -

A brace from Mwape Mu­sonda guided Black Leop­ards to a 2-0 vic­tory over Su­perS­port United in the ABSA Premier­ship yes­ter­day af­ter­noon.

Leop­ards made no changes from their derby win over Baroka FC, with Su­perS­port mak­ing three from their last- gasp set-back at home to Cape Town

City.

The home side s t a r t e d promis­ingly and or­ches­trated a good chance where Mwape Mu­sonda nar­rowly missed con­nec­tion on a through pass that al­lowed Ron­wen Wil­liams to rush off his line to make a save.

With just un­der 10 min­utes re­main­ing, a call for off­side was dis­missed as Tsh­warelo Bereng found space in­side the box but the for­ward shot hor­ri­bly over the top with Wil­liams

left for dead.

Re­alised

United re­alised their in-ef­fec­tive­ness in at­tack and called Bradley Grobler off the bench, who re­turned from a lengthy in­jury lay­off to re­place Thabo Mnya­mane at the start of the sec­ond half. Li­doda Du­vha were out to con­tinue their first-half as­ser­tion and they man­aged to win a penalty af­ter Grant Kekana was ad­judged to have handl e d i nsi de t he box. Mu­sonda made no mis­take from the spot to put the hosts ahead on 56 min­utes. United had it all to do, and a glanc­ing header Grobler was the clos­est the three-time PSL cham­pi­ons came to grab­bing an im­me­di­ate re­sponse on 60 min­utes. With 15 min­utes to g o, Leop­ards shot-stop­per King Ndlovu came up trumps for the home side with an out­standi ng save to keep out Aubrey Modiba's free­kick.

Mwape Mu­sonda.

Tom Clev­er­ley's first goal for over a year gave Wat­ford an away vic­tory over Crys­tal Palace, who had been in front at half-time.
