Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town suffered a second successive defeat in the Absa Premiership, going down 2-0 to Cape Town City at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday evening. 

Despite creating several goal-scoring chances on the night, the Urban Warriors were unable to find the back of the net as their crosstown rivals subsequently moved to the top of the league standings. 

In what was his 100th game for the Urban Warriors, Bantu Mzwakali had the first chance of the match, but having beaten Shu-Aib Walters the winger would be denied by Tshepo Gumede who got back well for the Citizens. 

City duly hit the front in the 25th minute of the clash. Jody February did superbly well to deny Lehlohonolo Majoro from close range, but the goal-minder was helpless as he watched Aubrey Ngoma's shot fly into the back of the net.

City doubled their lead five minutes before the interval as Erwin Isaacs put the ball into the back of his own net from a Ngoma cross, with Lebogang Manyama breathing down his neck. 

Ajax looked a better team after the break, with Nathan Paulse rattling the woodwork in the 53rd minute, but that was how good it would get for the hosts as City held on for all three points.
