Flames midfielder Robert Ng’ambi on Sunday registered his third goal in the 2016 South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) season as his club Platinum Stars thumped Esau Kanyenda’s Polokwane City 3-0.
Ng’ambi was introduced as a second-half substitute in the 70th minute as Stars led 2-0 and eight minutes later he netted the third for Dikwena.
He is now eight goals behind the leading scorer Collins Mbesuma of Mpumalanga Black Aces.
“I had gone quite a couple of matches and I was excited to find the back of the net.
“The win itself is a motivation as we fight to improve our position on the log table,” said Ng’ambi from South Africa yesterday.
However, his compatriot Robin Ngalande, who also plays for Platinum, did not get a run. Kanyenda was also not featured.
Stars are fifth with 30 points from 17 games while Polokwane are 13th with 21 from 18 games.
Flames captain Limbikani Mzava played a full game for Aces on Saturday when they were held to a goalless draw by Bloemfontein Celtic.
Aces are third with 35 points from 18 games.
Micium Mhone’s Jomo Cosmos and Atusaye Nyondo’s University of Pretoria are stuck in the relegation zone on 14th and 15th positions respectively.
Cosmos lost to Chippa United 2-1 on Saturday and Mhone was substituted in the second half while Nyondo, who is reportedly injured, did not feature as his side lost 1-0 to Orlando Pirates.
Mamelodi Sundowns lead the table with 42 points from 18 matches.
