After the match against Stellies, the hosts only made one substitution: Bienvenu Eva Nga replaced Siphelele Luthuli.

After just seven minutes, Justice Chabalala scored his second goal of the year, and five minutes later, Craig Martin extended their lead, making it two goals in two games for the winger.

Vilakazi’s team already had a mountain to climb, and early in the second half, things got even worse for them when Banda was sent off for a second bookable offence on minute 54.

After replacing Martin at the hour mark, Kayden Francis made an immediate impression by scoring the Eastern Cape club’s first goal on minute 74 to secure the victory.
