Blackburn Rovers registered their first win of the season in the National First Division when they defeated on-form side Milano United 2-1 at Grassy Park on Saturday.

Samkelo Ndletyana and Bongithemba Yako found the back of the net for AmaRover while Shamiel Philander scored the only goal for United.

The win lifted Rovers from the relegation zone to 13th place on the log standings, while the Cape-based side slipped down to 3rd place.

Log leaders Mpumalanga Black Aces returned to winning ways when they edged Sivutsa Stars 1-0 at the Themba Senamela Stadium with Houston Hills scoring the only goal of the match.

AmaZayoni remain in top spot with 24 points from 11 matches, four points ahead of Thanda Royal Zulu, who have a game in hand.

Thanda registered their second straight win to move up to third place on the log, defeating FC Cape Town 2-1 at the Richards Bay Stadium.

Sfiso Hlanti and Nkosinathi Mthiyane were on target for AmaBhubesi, while Mpho Erasmus responded for the away side.

African Warriors also returned to winning ways with a comfortable 3-1 win over Jomo Cosmos to move up to fourth place on the table.

Bryce Aka scored a brace and Sibusiso Mokoena added a third, while Thabang Monare scored the consolation goal for Ezenkosi, who remain in eighth place.

Also on Saturday, Vasco Da Gama and Santos shared the spoils and the bragging rights when they played to a 0-0 stalemate at Parow Park.

The result left Santos in ninth place on the log standings, while their neighbours Vasco are one spot below.

On Sunday, Witbank Spurs thrashed newcomers Roses United 5-2

Former Orlando Pirates man Ralph Matema scored a hat-trick, with Peter Mubayiwa and Innocent Maela adding the other goals, while Sandile Ndlovu and Tumelo Nhlapho pulled two goals back for United, who are now second from the bottom of the table.

Dynamos added another point to their tally when they played to a 0-0 draw against FC AK at the Giyani Stadium.
