Mamelodi Sundowns extended their lead at the top of the DStv Premiership table with an emphatic 2-0 victory over out of sort Chippa United at a muddy Loftus Versfeld. Goals by Lebogang Maboe and Gaston Sirino in the first half helped them to open up a five-point gap at the summit of the table.
The Brazilians lead the way with 33 points from 15 games. It was an emotional game as they bid farewarell to their fallen defender Motjeka Madisha, who died in a tragic car accident last year. The defender will be buried in Limpopo on Saturday. The reason it took long for his burial is that the family received results from pathologists to confirm that it’s him who died in the accident 51 days ago.
The players dedicated the game to him. The were wearing black armbands in his honour.
