Judas Moseamedi was given his full debut after coming off the bench to good affect against Orlando Pirates, while Waseem Isaacs dropped to the bench.

Galaxy got off to the worst possible start as they were reduced to 10 men after just seven minutes after Pogiso Sanoka was given a straight red card for handling the ball.

Stellies had the ball the in the back of the net at the midway point of the half when Moseamedi got on the end of Junior Mendieta's pass, but the strike was ruled out for offside.

Steve Barker's charges had all the possession for the rest of the half with the numerical advantage, but they were unable to find a way past the Rockets defence.

However, Galaxy's resistance broke just before the hour mark as second-half substitute Ashley Du Preez turned home a cross from the left flank.

With time running out for the visitors, Owen da Gama threw on the likes of Mlungisi Mbunjana and Masilake Phohlongo for Ethan Brooks and Mohammed Anas as they went in search of an equaliser.

The 10 men of Galaxy, however, were unable to bypass the Stellenbosch defence in the later stages of the half as Steve Barker's men move on to four points.
