Wits go down at home

2014-03-15 23:00

Richard Henyekane’s hat-trick helped Free State Stars secure a much-needed victory but in the process, dented Bidvest Wits’ title aspirations last night.

Stars secured a 3-1 morale-boosting victory at Bidvest Stadium and moved one step away from the relegation zone.

At Loftus, Mamelodi Sundowns kept in touch with log-leading Kaizer Chiefs with a 1-0 win over Polokwane City.

Teko Modise netted the only goal of the game in the 17th minute to hand Pitso Mosimane a nervy three points when Sundowns could have converted plenty more.

The hosts did enough, however, and walked away with the points, while City remain dangerously close to the relegation zone, sitting just four points ahead of basement side Golden Arrows.

Chiefs edged out Orlando Pirates earlier in the day, momentarily going nine points clear at the top, but Sundowns ensured they kept pace with the log-leading Soweto giants, thanks to Modise’s early strike which cut Amakhosi’s advantage back to six.
