Alex United did the double over Aces and in the process got their league aspirations back on track after a winless last three games.
For Aces, it was their 10th loss in 19 league games in what is a very dissapointing season. Veteran coach Jacob Sakala was asked to step down and the reigns given back to Lombi Mabusela, who did a great job with the Gold City Giants last season.
United were 2-0 up by the 38th minute after opening their account in the 21st minute.
Kurt Pienaar did reduce the deficit in the 67' to give the boys in blue some hope but it was 3-1 in the 67' and a late 89' goal sealed a 4-1 victory for Alex United.
Uniteds goals were scored by Sello (2) and Ruwayne (2).
For Aces, its purely about building for next season by identifying youth and new players.
Mbiyozo, Hlugwane, Mahoa, Mothogwane, Cross, Rukato, Mathopa (66' Sampson), Morojele (46' Peters), Pienaar, Mngomezulu, Metsi
