Johannesburg - Miguel Timm has scored the only goal of the match as Black Aces registered a 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs in an PSL encounter at the FNB Stadium on Wednesday night.


With Chiefs throwing men forward in search of a late winner, it was the visitors who turned possession over quickly and scored the decisive goal deep into injury time.
The home side settled quicker and asked the early questions with Siphiwe Tshabalala firing over the crossbar in the fifth minute, while George Lebese forced a save from Jackson Mabokgwane in the 14th minute.
Stuart Barker’s side continued to look for the opener but Bernard Parker saw his freekick kept out by Mabokgwane in the 21st minute before drilling a long range effort wide of goal in the eight minutes later.
Aces had to wait until the 29th minute to carve their first opportunity but it was a good one as Abia Nale found a free Tendai Ndoro on the edge of the box, but the Zimbabwean shot wide of goal.
Chiefs’ next opportunity came from a setpiece in the 41st minute as Tshabalala’s delivery found Parker at the near post, but his header went over the crossbar.
AmaZayoni thought they deserved a penalty two minutes later when Willard Katsande looked to have fouled Ndoro inside the box, but the referee saw nothing wrong with the challenge.
Chiefs started the second half as they had started the first with Parker picking out Kingston Nkhatha inside the box, but the Zimbabwean sent his header wide of goal.
In the 62nd minute Siboniso Gaxa pushed forward on the right before playing a pinpoint cross to Parker at the near post, but Mabokgwane was positioned well to make a comfortable save.
Chiefs had a great chance in the 73rd minute when Parker ran into a cut-back cross from Katlego Mphela, only to send the ball over the target from close range.
Aces broke the deadlock in the fourth minute of added time as Timm made a great run on the left to latch onto a through pass from Nale before beating Khune from inside the box.
Amakhosi had a late chance to claim a share of the spoils but Mphela sent his header wide after meeting Tshabalala’s freekick at the near post.
