Cape Town - AmaZulu overcame Highlands Park 2-1 in Tuesday's Absa Premiership clash at Makhulong Stadium with a welcome return to form as they fight relegation.

Meanwhile, Cape Town City made it three wins in a row as they defeated Polokwane City 2-1. Ayanda Patosi got the opening goal with a stunning strike.

Siphelele Mthembu made it 2-0 in the second half before Mohamed Anas scored from the penalty spot after a decision was given.

In the other game on the night in the Premiership, struggling Maritzburg United and Chippa United played out to a 0-0 draw.
