A comprehensive wrap of all the kick-off times, results and match reports for the weekend DStv Premiership fixtures:

FRIDAY, 30 APRIL

Maritzburg United 1-1 Swallows FC

Swallows FC recorded their 13th 1-1 draw of the season against Maritzburg United after Sifiso Hlanti's strike cancelled out Travis Graham's opener at Harry Gwala Stadium on Friday evening.

SATURDAY, 1 MAY

Golden Arrows 0-1 AmaZulu - MATCH REPORT

AmaZulu beat Golden Arrows 1-0 at Sugar Ray Xulu Stadium on Saturday to move to the top of the DStv Premiership table.

Usuthu overtook three-time defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns to go to the summit of the log by two points.

Sundowns, however, have three games in hand and will face Orlando Pirates in a box office league clash on Sunday.

Bloemfontein Celtic 2-2 Kaizer Chiefs - MATCH REPORT

Bloemfontein Celtic came from two goals down to force a 2-2 draw against Kaizer Chiefs in an exciting DStv Premiership clash at the Petrus Molemela stadium on Saturday.

Happy Mashiane and Eric Mathoho had given Amakhosi a two-goal advantage but Neo Maema and Sepana Letsoalo, from the penalty spot, made sure Celtic took a point.

The result does little to help either team as they now face an uphill battle to end the season in the top-eight of the table.

TS Galaxy 1-0 Cape Town City

TS Galaxy solidified their place in the top-eight of the DStv Premiership standings with a 1-0 victory over Cape Town City at the Mbombela stadium on Saturday.

Mxolisi Macuphu was the match-winner, coming off the bench to score midway through the second half and condemn the Citizens to a second consecutive defeat.

The Rockets remain eighth on the table after the win but are now only four points behind Cape Town City with five games of the season still to play.

Chippa United 1-0 Stellenbosch

Chippa United boosted their DStv Premiership survival hopes by beating Stellenbosch 1-0 at Sisa Dukashe Stadium on Saturday.

The Chilli Boys were off to a strong start as they took the lead only 10 minutes into the game. A quick counter-attack saw Augustine Kwem provide the assist for Kurt Lentjies, who made no mistake with his finish.

TTM 1-2 Black Leopards

Black Leopards boosted their survival prospects after recording a 2-1 come-from-behind victory over fellow stragglers Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhadila in Polokwane on Saturday evening.

TTM drew first blood late in the first half thanks to an Alfred Ndengane spot-kick only for Leopards to level matters on the strike of half-time, Roderick Kabwe netting the all-important goal.

And it was Sanele Mathenjwa who had the last say, popping up in the 56th minute to head home what would turn out to be the winning goal.

SuperSport United 1-1 Baroka FC

It was honours even at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday evening as Baroka rallied from behind to record a 1-1 draw with SuperSport United in the DStv Premiership.

SuperSport claimed an early lead thanks to Kudakwashe Mahachi and looked to be heading for a narrow win before Richard Mbulu popped up in the 77th minute to level the scores and set up a tense finish.

SUNDAY, 2 MAY

Orlando Pirates 0-3 Mamelodi Sundowns - MATCH REPORT

Mamelodi Sundowns reclaimed top spot in the DStv Premiership on Sunday afternoon as three second-half goals secured a 3-0 victory over Orlando Pirates at Orlando Stadium.

After a goalless first stanza, Downs opened their account from the penalty spot in the 57th minute before Peter Shalulile and Lyle Lakay added their names to the scoresheet late on.
