Saturday's PSL action saw the Urban Warriors return to winning ways, while Dikwena registered yet another draw away to Free State Stars

Free State Stars had it all to play for in their quest to remain in the top eight when they welcomed the bottom of the table Platinum Stars on Saturday.

After comfortably seeing off Ajax Cape Town in midweek to move into the top eight for the first time this season, Ea Lla Koto appear to have found their mojo back after a disappointing start to the season.

As for Dikwena, they came into the game following a morale boosting draw at the home to Orlando Pirates.

They meant business by getting on the front foot early on, with the game’s first attempts on goal, only for poor finishing to let them down.

They finally found the breakthrough when Bonginkosi Ntuli stepped up to convert from the spot for his successive strike after founding the net in midweek against Bucs.

The hosts drew level three minutes before the break through Edward Manqele, who capitalized on a loose ball from inside the box.

In the second half, both sides came out cagely but the home side grew stronger as the half went on.

Mohammed Anas came close after 66 minutes but his shot the wrong side of the net.

In the end, both sides setled for a point with Dikwena still searching for their first win of the season.

Meanwhile, Goals from Bantu Mzwakali and Tashreeq Morris guided Ajax Cape Town to a 2-1 win over Bloemfontein Celtic at the Athlone Stadium in the night's other clash.

It is the former's first win since their 2-0 home win over Polokwane City last month, and the victory gives them some breathing space at the bottom of the log.

As for Celtic, they leave the Western Cape-based outfit with only three points from their midweek win over Cape Town City, but will take heart from their back-to-back wins prior to meeting the Urban Warriors.

Regardless, they still maintain a spot in the top eight more so the top six, a point above their provincial rivals Ea Lla Koto.
