Cape Town - SuperSport United made it three Absa Premiership wins on the spin as they beat Chippa United 2-1 at the Lucas Moripe Stadium on Wednesday.

Chippa United made a bright start, though, and Lentjies was presented with a chance in the 12th minute after being played into space behind the home defence, but he was unable to beat Ronwen Williams.

SuperSport United went up the other end of the pitch and nearly scored themselves, with James Keene steering a header just wide of the target.

However, the home fans were celebrating the lead soon afterwards as Aubrey Modiba played in Mokoena to fire past Daniel Akpeyi on 16 minutes.

The visitors were back in the contest 11 minutes later, though, when Lentjies latched onto a pass from Mark Mayambela and slotted past Williams to equalise.

But Chippa switched off at a crucial stage to allow Matsatsantsa to reclaim the lead on 42 minutes. Rusike did well to turn his marker and get off a shot that was blocked, but he reacted quickly to score on the rebound.
