Maritzburg United moved into top eight following a 1-0 win over Polokwane City in a Absa Premiership match at the Old Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

The halftime match statistics showed that Maritzburg failed to land a single shot on target.

Maritzburg managed to open the scoring through Yusuf Jappie after Polokwane were blown up for a foul just outside their penalty area. Jappie's curling free-kick over the wall left Polokwane's Zimbabwean goalkeeper George Chigova flat-footed and glued to his goalline, just ahead of the hour mark.
