Cape Town - Check out the highlights from the weekend's Absa Premiership action with Bidvest Wits' 4-3 victory over Orlando Pirates headlining the action.

The sides treated the crowd at Bidvest Stadium to a feast of action, with each goal better than the next.

Deon Hotto, Mxolisi Machuphu (2) and Cole Alexander netted for the Clever Boys, while Tshegofatso Mabaso, Musa Nyatama and Gabadinho Mhango got themselves on the scoresheet for the Buccanneers.

At Lucas Moripe Stadium earlier on Saturday, Lyle Lakay's last-gasp injury-time winner gave an unconvincing Brazilians all three points. 

Gaston Sirino broke the deadlock for Pitso Mosimane's men in the 39th minute before Siyanda Xulu pegged the defending champions back with a 56th-minute equaliser, but up popped Lakay in the first minute of stoppage time to snatch victory.

Prior to that, high-flying SuperSport United were brought back down to earth following their midweek MTN8 triumph over Sundowns with a 3-1 defeat to Polokwane City at Pietersburg Stadium.

Nicholas Motloung (30') and Puleng Tlolane (77') gave Polokwane a 2-0 lead before Aubrey Modiba pulled a goal back for Matsatsantsa in the 88th minute from the penalty spot. However, Salulani Phiri quelled any hopes of a fightback from Kaitano Tembo's side when the City midfielder put the game to bed in the fifth minute of injury time.

On Sunday, Cape Town City's winless league run was extended to four games as Benni McCarthy's side played to a 1-1 draw with Golden Arrows at Cape Town Stadium.

Kermit Erasmus gave the Citizens the lead and the hosts looked on course for all three points but gave away a penalty which Knox Mutizwa converted to give Steve Komphela's side a share of the spoils.

Kicking off at the same time on Sunday, Highlands Park claimed their second win of the season with a 2-1 victory over Baroka at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Peter Shalulile netted a brace (64', 74') and Collins Makgaga pulled a goal back in the 77th minute to make it a nervy final ten minutes for the Lions of the North, but Owen da Gama's held on for the victory despite being reduced to 10 men in the 92nd minute when Ricardo Williams was sent off for time-wasting.
