Full report

Both sides looked to put the ball on the deck and probe for openings as the clash got underway.

Neither side though was particularly dominant and were guilty of losing possession in the final third of the pitch leading to a lack of goalscoring opportunities.

Much of the play saw both teams look to get forward before spending much of their energy trying to get the ball back.

For Tinkler, fresh off losing to former side SuperSport, it was a welcome relief to pick up the three points to end the club's winless run, that had seen them record just one point this season in a 2-2 draw with Black Leopards.

It is a similar scenario for Baroka, who have won one drawn two and lost three of their opening six Premiership encounters.
