Johannesburg - Cape Town All Stars extended their lead at the top of the National First Division log with a 2-1 away win over derby rivals FC Cape Town at the NNK Rugby Stadium on Wednesday, as Baroka FC lost to Witbank Spurs in Mpumalanga.

All Stars had to come from behind to claim their victory, with Raymond Maluleke and Paseka Mako both scoring in the last 10 minutes, which saw them extend their advantage to three points after Spurs – thanks to goals from Thabang Klaas (who netted a brace) and Patrick Mubayiwa – beat Baroka at the Puma Rugby Stadium to move into second place.

Black Leopards suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat at home to Highlands Park, Milano United were strong for AmaZulu and recorded a 2-0 win (thanks to goals from Brandon Theron and Ebrahim Seedat), while Africa Warriors edged Mbombela United 1-0.

Royal Eagles defeated Vasco Da Gama 3-1 and bottom-of-the-log Mthatha Bucks were unable to get out of their winless streak as goals from Menzi Hlope and Sibongiseni Madikane saw them play to a 1-1 draw at home to Thanda Royal Zulu.

The tenth round of action takes place this weekend, with All Stars set to host AmaZulu on Sunday at Athlone Stadium, while Spurs will have the chance to assume leadership of the league – on a temporary basis at least – when they play away to Royal Eagles the day before.

Sunday will also see Vasco Da Gama and Milano United battle in a Cape Town derby.
