Tigers went to the top of the MTC Premiership log with a convincing 2-0 victory against Civics on Wednesday night. Two first half goals by striker Tangeni Shipahu ensured their victory which sees them moving to the top of the log with four points from two matches.
It was Civics’ second successive defeat which puts them down in the relegation zone, while their problems mounted when defender Donelly Nel had to leave the field after clashing heads with Shipahu on 20m.
He suffered a deep gash above his eye in the process and was later taken to hospital, to be stitched up.
