Vasco da Gama pulled off a crucial 2-1 win away at city rivals Milano United in the National First Division at the Philippi Stadium on Friday night.
It was Siseko Manona and Mbulelo Wambi who gave Vasco a two-goal advantage, before Diego Brown reduced the deficit with a stunning goal for Milano.
This was an important result for coach Tony de Nobrega’s outfit who remain in fourth place on the log with 14 points, the same as Cape neighbours Milano and FC Cape Town.
Durban side Golden Arrows lead the table on 15 points.
Vasco’s veteran striker Johnny Armogam, who played the first 60 minutes of this encounter, shared his views on the game.
“The first half we dominated and we kept the ball well and went ahead 1-0. Our game plan was to use the diagonal ball and get forward that way.
“The second half I think Milano were better, but we scored again even though they were coming at us. Our defence and midfield soaked up the pressure very well.
“They scored a late goal, which was a classy strike, but we had done enough to secure the win. I am very happy with the result for our team.”
Vasco next face FC Cape Town in a home game at Parow Park on Saturday at 15h30.
