Polokwane - Thobani Mncwango scored four goals as Polokwane City crushed SuperSport United 4-1 at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in an Absa Premiership match on Saturday afternoon.
 
Polokwane got off to a flying start and found themselves 2-0 up inside the first 16 minutes thanks to a brace from Thobani Mncwango. He first headed home a cross from Lebohang Motumi to make it 1-0, before doubling the advantage a short while later with a left-footed shot after good work from Jabu Maluleke.
 
SuperSport were rocked by their opponents’ fast start but gradually settled into the game and gave themselves a lifeline on 27 minutes when Jeremy Brockie pulled a goal back, converting in the box after an assist from Clayton Daniels.
 
United made changes early in the second half, first introducing new signing Mark Mayambela for his debut before adding David Mathebula to the mix in midfield, but they continued to struggle against a determined Rise and Shine.
 
Even the final substitution for the visitors – which saw defender Luvolwethu Mpeta make way for forward Bradley Grobler – failed to yield the desired results, with Polokwane extending their advantage to 4-1 after two further goals from Mncwango in the 82nd and 88th minutes.
 
SuperSport could have pulled a further goal back late on when they were awarded a penalty for a foul on Dove Wome in the box, but Polokwane goalkeeper George Chigova denied Brockie from the spot.
