Johannesburg – First-half goals from Ronald Ketjijere and Atusaye Nyondo set University of Pretoria on their way to a first Premiership victory of the season as they edged out Chippa United 2-1 at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Wednesday.
Namibia captain Ketjijere fired the visitors ahead with a clever chip after only three minutes, before Malawian Nyondo doubled the advantage just after the half-hour.
David Zulu did manage to pull a goal back for last season's National First Division (NFD) champions, but they failed to find an equaliser and slipped to a second loss in three games in the process.
Tuks started the game with a loss and one defeat from their opening two games and they received the perfect start when Ketjijere's right-footed strike sailed over the helpless Tshepo Motsoeneng.
The men from Tshwane continued to press forward and Thabo Mosadi, Nyondo and Geoffrey Massa free-kicks all came close to extending the lead.
