Johannesburg - A brace from Collins Mbesuma sent Mpumalanga Black Aces to the top of the Absa Premiership standings following a 2-1 victory over Wits at Bidvest Stadium on Friday night.

Mbesuma scored the winning goal, his tenth of the season, eight minutes from time to see Aces come from behind for their ninth win in the league this season.

The win takes them to 30 points from 14 games, one ahead of second-placed Wits.

Wits scored first after Thulani Hlatshwayo headed home a Daine Klate free-kick in the tenth minute.

But goals from Mbesuma in the 16th and 82nd minutes saw the men from Mpumalanga surge to the top of the log standings.
