Log leaders Uthongathi returned to form to increase their points lead at the top of the GladAfrica Championship log.
Here is Saturday’s full wrap…
JDR Stars 0-1 Uthongathi
Uthongathi maintained their lead at the top of the table after a first half goal by Menzi Ndwandwe. The KZN team was without their head coach Johnny Ferreira who has been suspended by the club and were led by assistant coach Pitso Dladla. It was a 9th win of the season after 15 matches for Uthongathi who are now 2 points ahead of second placed Ajax Cape Town.
Ajax Cape Town 3-1 Jomo Cosmos
The Urban Warriors registered their 5th straight win and their 9th win of the season to keep pressure on Uthongathi. Trouble continues for Jomo Cosmos who have now lost 6 matches and still languish second from bottom of the log with 16 matches remaining.
TS Sporting 0-0 TS Galaxy
The Mpumalanga Derby failed to produce a goal at Kabokweni Stadium this afternoon. Both Sporting and Galaxy were desperate to get maximum points as they both languish at the bottom half of the table. Sporting are 5 points ahead of bottom placed Royal Eagles while Galaxy are 10th with 17 points from 14 matches.
Tshakhuma TM 2-1 Pretoria University
Newly appointed coach Vladislav Heric registered his first win in his second match in charge at the Thohoyandou Stadium. It was a much-needed win for TTM who are still hopeful of securing a promotion/playoff spot at the end of the season. It was a lost opportunity on the other hand for Tuks who could have easily closed the gap between them and log leaders Uthongathi to 4 points. Tuks are 3rd with 24 points from 15 matches while TTM are 6th 9 points behind Uthongathi.

Three goals in the second half gave the Dube Birds their second consecutive victory and to move them into the top 8 with 21 points from matches.

The Mpumalanga side are now 3rd from bottom 2 points above relegation favourites Royal Eagles.
