Amakhosi looked in cruise control at Dr Molemela Stadium as Maluleka opened the scoring after just 12 minutes, before Gustavo Paez continued his hot streak with another goal, securing a 2-0 win with 22 minutes to go.
That result hoisted the Glamour Boys to second in the standings, just two points adrift of leaders Bidvest Wits, and Maluleka, who scooped the man of the match award last night, believes it is a sign of things to come.
“I feel good about this award and the team’s performance,” he told his club's official website. “What pleases me most is that we played very well as a team.
“With this kind of team effort, we will give it a push towards the end of the season.
"We deserve this win, because we played well.
“We are in a good position to win the title. This win is a confidence booster for us.”
Speaking of his cool finish past Patrick Tignyemb to opening the scoring in Bloemfontein, Maluleka said: “I kept calm as I knew what I wanted to do. I received a nice pass from Joseph Molangoane and slotted the ball in the back of the net.”
