Johannesburg - Atusaye Nyondo scored on either side of half-time, paving the way to a 3-0 win for SuperSport United in their Absa Premiership soccer clash against Black Leopards in Atteridgeville on Wednesday night.

United went on the attack early in the first half and Leopards' goalkeeper Posnett Omony was forced into making a stunning save to keep out a strike from Nyondo in the 14th minute.

However, Leopards held off their hosts for the majority of the opening period.

A minute before half-time, SuperSport eventually broke through with Nyondo latching on to a cross from Bryce Moon to find the back of the net.

Eight minutes after the break, the Malawian international netted his second strike with a close-range effort.

With SuperSport in control of proceedings, Morgan Gould grabbed their third goal in the 63rd minute when Jabu Maluleke sent over a cross that was saved by Osmony, and Gould connected with a header off the rebound.

The visiting side's woes were compounded with 18 minutes left, when Kethokwakhe Masuku was sent off after being shown his second yellow card and Leopards were reduced to 10 men.

Osmony took the brunt of the attack and managed to fend off the SuperSport strikers, pulling off four saves in the last 10 minutes to save face for the visitors.

United settled in second place on the log after four rounds of matches, trailing leaders Mamelodi Sundowns on goal difference.

Leopards were left floundering in 13th position with only one win and three points this season.
