Winger Mzikayise Mashaba scored both goals for expensively-assembled Sundowns, putting his club ahead on three minutes and scoring the mid-second half winner.

SuperSport, who share the Lucas 'Masterpieces' Moripe Stadium in west Pretoria with Sundowns, levelled midway through the opening half via New Zealand striker Jeremy Brockie.

Victory gave 2001 Champions League runners-up Sundowns an unassailable five-point lead over Orlando Pirates and Wits in the race for second spot with one round left.

"Mzikayise is finally listening to me," said Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane.

"That is what (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Alexis) Sanchez do, and look at how many goals they score. My wingers must do the same."
