Cape Town - Cape Town City returned to winning ways as they thrashed AmaZulu 3-0 in Saturday's Premiership encounter at Cape Town Stadium. 

City raced into a well-deserved 2-0 lead before half-time in the Mother City on home soil.

They completed a much needed victory in the second stanza as Thabo Nodada got a later goal in the contest.

City raced out of the blocks and took the lead inside the first three minutes as Taariq Fielies took advantage after poor goalkeeping from Siyabonga Mbatha. 

When he spilled Ayanda Patosi's free-kick, Fielies was on hand to poke home in the early exchanges. 

Usuthu tried to respond when Emiliano Tade headed wide not long after. 

With that said, he had to be sharp to deny both Patosi and the lively Surprise Ralani. 

However, Benni McCarthy's men made it 2-0 in the 32nd minute as Siphelele Mthembu met Ralani's excellent delivery to convert home. 

In the second stanza, striker Bonginkosi Ntuli nearly pulled one back but keeper Peter Leeuwenburgh pushed aside the strike for a corner. 

Nonetheless, the Citizens were largely on top and secured a comfortable victory when Nodada scored after good build-up play. 

The result sees City move up the standings while the outfit from Durban are in last position.
