Cape Town - Platinum Stars overpowered the University of Pretoria 2-0 in an Absa Premiership clash at the Tuks Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Dikwena were more prolific in front of goal than AmaTuks on the day, but Stars goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul made great saves in the second-half to ensure that the game ended 2-0 to his side.
AmaTuks goalkeeper Washington Arubi was called into action just five minutes into game when he pulled off a decent save to deny Stars striker Bongi Ntuli.
Lennox Bacela had a chance to put AmaTuks in the lead in the 16th minute, but his header from a Bongani Nyathi cross went over the cross-bar.
In the 23rd minute, Stars captain Vuyo Mere played a good cross inside the Stars box, and his teammate Eleazer Rodgers headed wide of the target.
Just before the half-hour mark, Thabo Mosadi received the ball inside the Dikwena box unmarked, and fired wide of the target.
Stars were awarded a free-kick just outside the AmaTuks box on the stroke of half-time, but Letladi Madubanya placed his over the goal-posts from the set-piece.
AmaTuks began the second-half brightly with striker Thabo Mnyamane forcing Stars goalkeeper Bouna Coundoul into a fine save on the hour-mark.
However, Stars striker Bonginkosi Ntuli broke the deadlock in the 64th minute after receiving a through pass from Ndumiso Mabena.
Senegalese shot-stopper Coundoul denied Mnyamane again in the 67th minute with a brilliant save as the home side looked to equalise.
Nevertheless, Masibusane Zongo sealed Stars' 2-0 victory with good finish from close range with 15 minutes left on the clock.
Following their hard fought victory, Dikwena went to the top of the Absa Premiership standings.
