Mamelodi Sundows’ lethal star, Leonardo Castro who scored a brace against Polokwane City last night.

THE top of the Absa Premiership table remained unchanged after the title battle took centre stage in midweek.

Mamelodi Sundowns stayed four points ahead of Bidvest Wits after both sides won their respective matches, while there was disappointment for Kaizer Chiefs once more.

The Brazilians took their points total to 55 thanks to a 3-1 victory over Polokwane City at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday night.

Columbian Leonardo Castro scored a brace with goals in the 32nd and 50th minutes added to a Keagan Dolly (63) goal in Limpopo.

The hosts, meanwhile, found what proved to be a consolation through Thobani Mncwango as they stayed in trouble in 13th position on the table.

The Students moved to 51 points behind Sundowns thanks to a 1-0 triumph over Jomo Cosmos 1-0 at Olen Park.

Henrico Botes (24) netted the only goal in Potchefstroom as Gavin Hunt’s men stayed in touch with the leaders.

For Cosmos, defeat left them second bottom and with plenty to do in the battle against relegation.

Both those games were played on Wednesday, when the only other match saw both Ajax and Platinum Stars drop points in a 1-1 draw at the Cape Town Stadium.

Tashreeq Morris (18) had opened the scoring for the hosts, who missed a chance to climb into the top eight, with Ndumiso Mabena (58) levelling before the hour as Dikwena stayed four points ahead of Kaizer Chiefs in third position.

Amakhosi had played on Tuesday night and conceded a stoppage-time equaliser in their 2-2 scoreline against Mpumalanga Black Aces in Nelspruit.

Siphiwe Tshabalala (21) and Willard Katsande (61) had twice given the Soweto giants the lead, but each time the home side came back via Bhongelwethu Jayiya (52) and Eddie Ngalo (90).

The result kept Chiefs fourth and Aces
