WHAT Kaizer Chiefs can do, Mamelodi Sun­downs can do also.

Pitso Mosi­mane’s big-spend­ing side showed their value as they con­tin­ued their pur­suit for the loglead­ing Amakhosi, main­tain­ing their hopes in the ti­tle chase by keep­ing the six points that sep­a­rate them from Chiefs with a 1-0 win over Polok­wane City at Lof­tus Sta­dium last night.

Yes­ter­day, Sun­downs man­aged to do some­thing they had yet to do this sea­son in the league when they sent City to the gal­lows.

The last time the two sides met in the league in the cor­re­spond­ing fix­ture, it was the Pre­mier­ship rook­ies who left Peter Mok­aba Sta­dium the hap­pier of the two af­ter a 1-0 win, cour­tesy of an own goal by de­fender Te­bogo Langerman, who was not part of pro­ceed­ings last night.

Sun­downs re­ceived a con­fi­dence booster af­ter their 2-0 mid­week win over AmaZulu.

Af­ter a few sniffs at the City goal mouth, it did not take long for Downs to find the back of the net and lead.

Teko Modise found him­self on the end of a ric­o­cheted shot from cap­tain Sur­prise Moriri that re­bounded on the up­right, and calmly slot­ted it past City keeper Modiri Marumo 17 min­utes into the game. Chu­mani Bam­bani RE­SULTS: Bid­vest Wits 1-3 Free State Stars; Black Aces 5-2 Moroka Swal­lows.
