Cape Town Spurs picked up their third straight win in all competitions with a 1-0 victory over Hungry Lions FC on Friday.

JDR Stars 1-0 Pretoria Callies
JDR Stars resumed their Championship campaign positively and edged Pretoria Callies 1-0 at the Giant Stadium in Soshanguve.
A finish just before the end of the first half from Zimbabwean international Ishmael Wadi was what separated the two sides on the day.

University of Pretoria 1-3 Baroka FC
University of Pretoria made a disappointing return to their campaign following a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Baroka FC at the Tuks Stadium on Saturday.
Ayanda Mvambi put the host ahead before the break, but Bakgaga Ba Ga Mphahlele rallied back and drew the level off an own-goal by Siphamandla Ncanana.
Bakgaga kept probing around the closing period and found a second through Ntiyiso Bombi which needed AmaTuks to come from behind to salvage something.
However, the Limpopo-based outfit made the points safe as Bombi charged in again and completed his brace from an assist by Santino Smith and broke the hearts of AmaTuks.

Magesi FC 2-0 NB La Masia
NB La Masia’s reign in the Motsepe Foundation Championship continued to prove difficult following a 2-0 loss to Magesi FC on Sunday afternoon.
