Thanda increase NFD lead



Thanda Royal Zulu extended their lead at the top of the National First Division when they defeated Vasco Da Gama 2-0 at Richards Bay Sports Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

Nkosinathi Mthiyane and Thobelane Maneli found the back of the net for Amabhubesi to increase 41 from 22 games.

Meanwhile, Mpumalanga Black Aces lost some ground in the title chase when they were held to a 0-0 draw by Milano united at the Themba Senamela Stadium.

Amazayoni remain in second place with 38 points, while Milano move up to third place with 34 points.

Witbank Spurs saw their positive streak coming to an end when they went down 2-1 to FC Cape Town at the NNK Rugby Stadium.

Alfred Ngedane and Mpho Erasmus were on target for the Cape side, while

Innocent Maela scored the only goal for Spurs.

Dan Malesela’s United FC made up some ground with a 1-0 win over Dynamos at the Moruleng stadium to move up to fourth place with 34 points, while a loan gone from Xolani Mdaki earned Santos a 1-0 win over Roses United.

The People’s Team is currently in 6th place with 33 points from 21 matches and still in with a chance of breaking into the top three due to the couple of games they have in hand.

Jomo Cosmos also returned to winning ways when they defeated Sivutsa Stars 2-1 at Kabokweni Stadium.

Goals from Thabang Monare and Broderick Burds were enough to secure maximum points for Ezenkosi, moving them to a safer position in 12th place with 26 points.

Elsewhere, African Warriors’ promotion aspirations suffered a knock when they went down 2-0 to Blackburn Rovers, while Polokwane City defeated FC AK 2-1 to keep the Johannesburg-based side in the relegation zone.
