Cape Town – Lebohang Maboe scored on his first start for Mamelodi Sundowns as they recorded a 2-0 win over Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.

Ramagalela then slipped in Vusimuzi Mngomezulu with a neat flicked pass a minute later, but he fired a left-footed strike wide of the far post from 14 yards out.

Mbulelo Wagaba threatened to restore parity four minutes later when he connected with a corner at the back post, but his downward header missed to the right of the goal.

The hosts had a good opportunity to equalise in the 10 minutes of stoppage time that followed, but Wagaba flashed an effort wide of the far post from 14 yards out after being played into space on the right by Maluleke.

Mosimane had recently spoken of wanting to see his players manage games better when going ahead, and they did just that in the second half to give very little away.
