On target: Edwin Gyimah fires Black Aces away from danger

Ghana international Edwin Gyimah was on target as his side Mpumalanga Black Aces went a long way towards ensuring their Absa Premiership survival with a 2-1 win against fellow strugglers Moroka Swallows on Saturday afternoon.

Black Aces opened the scoring midway through the second half through striker Collins Mbesuma after his shot from close range was cleared by Dikgang Mabalane, but not before it crossed the goal-line.

Swallows almost restored parity in the 77th minute when Lerato Chabangu powered a header on target, but goalkeeper Jackson Mabokgwane made a fine low save to prevent the ball crossing the line in his first major involvement of the match.

But just two minutes later, the Bafana Bafana keeper flapped at a corner-kick that was flicked beyond his reach by one of his own defenders and Isaacs arrived at the back post to head home.

The score remained level for only a short while before Aces reclaimed the lead in the 81st minute. This time Onyakachi Okonkwo provided a perfect cross from the right flank that Gyimah powered home with a header.
