Pretoria - Lerato Lamola has scored a late second half goal to help Bloemfontein Celtic to a smash and grab 2-1 Absa Premiership win over the University of Pretoria on Wednesday.
Lamola scored either side of half-time to bag his first brace of the season, as Tuks suffered their fifth defeat of the season.
The defeat leaves Tuks second from bottom on the table, having taken the lead early in the game through Thabo Mnyamane.
Lamola, though, did enough for Phunya Sele Sele, clinching three valuable points for the Free State outfit.
Having not scored a single goal at home so far this season, Tuks soon changed that statistic and went ahead through Mnyamane, who curled a left-footed effort into the far corner to send Tuks ahead eight minutes in.
Caught off guard early in the contest, Celtic were made to work their way back into the game, as Dumisani Zuma and Mukuka Mulenga tried their luck, narrowly missing the target.
But the visitors looked like a team hungry for goals and pulled the game level after the half-hour mark.
Tuks withstood a barrage of shots and half-chances but would eventually be undone, after a lack of concentration allowed Celtic to advance into the area, before Lamola slotted home into the corner from close range.
That would be the way the pair went into the half-time break.
Celtic came out firing and were it not for Arubi, second half replacement Lyle Lakay would have put the visitors ahead after 64 minutes.
Lakay broke through the line and had a shot at goal, which Arubi did well to punch away.
Tuks had their best chance of the half fall to Mnyamane, who was denied his brace by the post, seven minutes from the end.
But Celtic would have the last laugh as Lamola made sure of his second of the evening, slotting home two minutes from time to all but wrap up maximum points for the visitors.
