Orapa United returned to winning ways in the BTC Premiership over the weekend.

The Ostriches went into their game against Township Rollers having failed to win their last two league games.

This was a repeat of the 2017/18 Mascom Top 8 Cup final which saw Rollers beat Orapa 4-2 at the Francistown Sports Complex last month.

Orapa got their revenge as they overcame Rollers 2-0 in a league game at the Itekeng Stadium.

Omaatla Kebatho opened the scoring for the hosts in the 19th minute, before Jerome Ramatlhakwana sealed Orapa's 2-0 win in the 89th minute.

Despite the victory the Ostriches remained fourth on the league standings, while Rollers, who are the defending champions, also remained at the top of the log.

Rollers are three points ahead of second-placed Jwaneng Galaxy, who have a game in hand.

Orapa are only behind third-placed Miscellaneous on goal-difference.
