The Lidoda Duvha striker fired home after 32 minutes before David Radebe levelled matters 10 minutes from time.

However, with just moments remaining in the game the visitors snatched all three points as Ramagalela grabbed his second from the spot after a handball by Ronald Ketjijere in added time.

The result lifts Leopards to eighth in the standings with 15 points from 12 PSL games, while AmaTuks could finish the day as low as seventh, depending on results elsewhere in the Premiership.

The hosts had the first genuine chance of the match when Senegalese frontman Mame Niang found Dumisani Ngwenya on the edge of the area but his shot was a poor one.

AmaTuks had a few half-chances as they continued to dictate matters but were punished for their lack of cutting edge when Ramagalela finished smartly after he was put clear on goal with a delightful through-ball.

The hosts continued to dominate the first half, but failed to make their chances count and were punished in the 31st minute, when Leopards scored against the run of play.

The visitors were dealt an injury blow to their keeper Mphaha Azwindini shortly after the interval.

Manager Ian Palmer brought on Ayanda Mtshali who was immediately called into action, pulling off a series of crucial saves to keep his side in it.

Leopards were forced to replace Maphaha, after the goalkeeper was injured and could not recover, prompting coach Ian Palmer to bring on Ayanda Mtshali five minutes into the second period.

Niang should have given his side the lead when Ayanda Lubelo found his head with a pinpoint cross but the striker missed the target.

Thereafter, Radebe came off the bench to inflict pain on the visitors but Jerome Damon eased their pain when he controversially pointed to the spot after what looked like an accidental handball.

Ramagalela showed little sympathy and slotted home, giving Lidoda Duvha their third victory of the season.
