FOOTBALL NEWS - Mamelodi Sundowns scored two goals in two minutes to move four points clear atop the Absa Premiership standings, following a 2-1 win over Ajax Cape Town at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday evening.
Fagie Lakay opened the scoring for the hosts, but goals from Ricardo Nascimento and Sibusiso Vilakazi before the break sealed all three points for the visitors.
Following a rather cagey start in the Mother City where the Brazilians dominated possession without any real threat, the Urban Warriors hit the front against the run of play.
As they did on Friday evening, Muhsin Ertugral's troops were first to find the back of the net as Lakay held off his marker before firing past Denis Onyango in the 26th minute for his maiden Ajax Cape Town goal.
The early setback kicked the Brazilians into gear and following a few warning shots, Pitso Mosimane's men restored parity.
Nascimento made no mistake from the spot following a handball in the area, and it was one-all with with 37 minutes on the clock.
Brandon Petersen did superbly well to keep out Oupa Manyisa and Percy Tau in quick succession leading up to Sundowns' first, but he could do nothing as the burly defender found the bottom right corner.
