Mamelodi Sundowns regained second spot and moved to within four points of log leaders Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa Premiership following a 2-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic on Wednesday evening.
The weekend’s Man of the Match Nicholus Lukhubeni maintained his spot the starting eleven as Pitso Mosimane went with the same line-up that took down the Chilli Boys on the weekend.
Vilakazi gave the Brazilians the lead in the 15th minute with a simple tap in at the back post after Mabokgwane parried Themba Zwane’s shot.
Siwele levelled matters on the half-hour mark after Ndumiso Mabena fired past Onyango into the bottom corner.
The first half drawing near, Zwane almost restored the lead but his effort was brilliantly saved by Mabokgwane at the near post.
Downs restored their lead ten minutes after the restart, when the skipper curled home an unstoppable free-kick from the edge of the box leaving a lively Mabokgwane with no chance.
With Siwelele on the charge, the Brazilians nearly caught the visitors napping as Maboe latched onto a Zwane through ball, the electric midfielder firing the final effort over.
Mosimane’s men controlled the game through the final quarter to collect all three points and move to within four points on table topping Kaizer Chiefs.
