PSL Weekend Wrap-up :Sundowns close in on leaders Kaizer Chiefs

 Mamelodi Sundowns closed in on Premier Soccer League PSL leaders Kaizer Chiefs   following a 2-1 victory over SuperSport United at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday.

Themba Zwane and Thapelo Morena scored in either half for Sundowns while Dean Furman converted from the penalty spot in the second half but it was not enough to help SuperSport for a share of the spoils on the day.

It was a good recovery for Sundowns who had lost 1-0 to Orlando Pirates   four days earlier.

With Chiefs dropping two points after being held 1-1 by Black Leopards   on Saturday, Sundowns are now seven points behind the log leaders.

It was revenge for Sundowns over SuperSport who beat them 2-0 to lift the MTN8 Cup earlier this season.
