NFD: Saturday Match Wrap
It was a tightly contested afternoon in the National First Division, goals at a premium with only six scored in the six matches. Witbank Spurs on top of the log temporarily
Black Leopards 1-1 Moroka Swallows
Roggert Nyundu was on the score-sheet for the hosts at the Thohoyandou Stadium, Aleni Lebyane netting for the Johannesburg-based club.
Cape Town All Stars 0-1 Witbank Spurs
The Witbank side scored late in the first half through Peter Mubayiwa. Stars piled on the pressure in the second stanza at the Athlone Stadium, but despite numerous chances, could not find the net. The win takes Spurs top of the table, although they could be overtaken by Baroka FC on Sunday, the Limpopo side set to play AmaZulu.
FC Cape Town 0-1 Royal Eagles
A first half penalty by Katlego Mphela was enough for the KZN outfit to claim all three points at the NNK Rugby Stadium in Cape Town.
Highlands Park 2-0 Thanda Royal Zulu
Peter Shalulile put the hosts in front at the Makhulong Stadium after 11 minutes. Zivai Varenga sealed the win with a 62nd minute strike.
Mbombela United 0-0 Vasco da Gama
Mbombela slipped five points off the play off zone after the goal-less draw at the Kanyamazane Stadium, Vasco just a point above the relegation zone.
Mthatha Bucks 0-0 Santos FC
The point earned by Bucks at the Mthatha Stadium takes them out of the drop zone for at least 24 hours.
