Khama Billiat bagged a brace to inspire Kaizer Chiefs to a 4-1 thrashing of 10 men Cape Town City at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday afternoon for their first league win of the season.
Amakhosi started the game on a high tempo and almost took the lead as early as the fourth minute through former City attacker Lebogang Manyama but his tame shot towards goal failed to trouble the opposition goalkeeper.
The visitors went ahead as early as the 12th minute through defender Ngezana who tapped in a header from close range after an assist from Willard Katsande.
On the 25th minute mark, City pulled matters level through former Chiefs striker Matthew Rusike after he beat the Amakhosi defence at the near post to head in from an Ayanda Patosi corner kick.
Giovanni Solinas was forced to make a forced change after Leonardo Castro akwardly landed on his ankle. He was replaced by Bernard Parker.
The sides went into the halftime locked at 1-1.
Chiefs got in front just five minutes into the second stanza through Billiat. The Zimbabwean striker dipped low with his head to connect with the ball which found its way into the net after a beautiful assist from Parker.
In the 67th minute, Taariq Fielies was sent for an early shower for a second bookable offence which left the home side with 10 men for the remaining 20 minutes or so.
Parker had a chance to kill the game off but shot wide.
Moments later Billiat grabbed his brace for the afternoon with a close range finish.
Zulu put the result beyond doubt, making it 4-1 to the visitors, after catching the City defence on the break with a cool finish after a neat pass from Hendrick Ekstein.
The Glamour Boys held on to claim their first win of the season in convincing fashion, and move temporarily into fourth spot with seven points having played a few games more.
