Frank Sarfo-Gyamfi scored his first goal of the season as Awal Mohammed provided an assist in Maritzburg United's win on Saturday.
The Ghanaian duo made their significant contributions to hand a convincing 3-1 win to 'The Team of Choice' against Moroka Swallows at the Dobsonville Stadium.
Sarfo-Gyamfi came on as a second half substitute to ensure all maximum points were safe for the visitors with United's third and final goal.
This was after Awal Mohammed had provided a long pass to Zimbabwean striker Cuthbert Malajila to open the scoring in the 18th minute.
United's lead was however short lived as Felix Obada drew Swallows level just 8 minutes after going behind.
Terrence Mandaza restored Maritzburg's lead with four minutes to go after Swallows' Gilbert Mapemba was sent off in the 32nd minute for a two footed challenge before the Black Satellites player sealed the win with an injury time goal.
The win now takes coach Ernst Middendorpâ€™s team to third in the South African top flight â€“ just four points behind leaders Kaizer Chiefs.
