Durban - Their march up the PSL standings continued when Golden Arrows claimed another haul of three points by beating Mpumalaga Black Aces 3-1 at a wet Chatsworth Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The home side shot to the front early when Siyabonga Nkosi slammed home a drive from just inside the Aces penalty area after being set-up by Siphesihle Nzimande who was able to divert a cross into his path.

Thereafter Aces pressed relentlessly in search of an equaliser, causing a few anxious moments for the Arrows defence.

However, the home side's goalkeeper, Helton Da Rocha, was in sparkling form, and in the 17th minute he was at full stretch to keep out Marawaan Bantam's viscious free-kick.

Da Rocha produced a similar save in the 32nd minute when he went airborne to block Vusiwe Masondo's curling free-kick from just outside the penalty area.

Arrows held them off, though, and hit back five minutes before the interval when Joseph Musonda scored from a cleverly worked corner kick, involving Nkosi. The left-back powered a low drive past Denis Onyanga in the Aces goals.

In the first minute after the interval, Aces centre back Nicholas Killas received his marching orders when he deliberately brought down Philani Shange who had a clear run at goals.

In the 51st minute, Arrows struck with a counter-attacking manoeuvre which resulted in Nkosi squaring a ball for Nzimande to tap in.

Aces got a consolation goal in the 71st minute when Mpho Maleka headed a Thomrick October cross past Da Rocha. That strike took Maleka's tally of goals in league matches to six for the season.
