Chiefs too classy for Tuks

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs registered their first win over the University of Pretoria when they handed them a 3-0 defeat in the quarter-finals of the 2013 MTN8 at FNB Stadium on Saturday night.

The game got off to an exhilarating start with Tuks threatening to score as early as the first minute with Buhle Mkhwananzi’s header going just slightly off the mark after a corner.

However, it wasn’t long before Chiefs got the lead through Tefu Mashamaite from a corner kick. With the ball whipped into the box, amid a scramble it ball was cleared off the line and fell to the former Wits defender who blasted it to the back of the net.

The goal seemed to be a confidence booster for the home side as they continued to pile pressure on the visitors with free flowing movement.

Good passing and good movement off the ball were at the order of the day. Chiefs almost benefitted in the 14th minute when Musona saw his strike going across the face of the goal.

Despite Chiefs’ pressure, the visitors were able to cause troubles to the home team. On the half hour mark, Maruping’s header went wide after Mosadi’s good work down the right flank.

Five minutes before the half-time whistle, Knowledge Musona was at it again but his long range effort only managed to trouble the side netting.

In the early stages of second half, Steve Barker’s side were looking much sharper and convincing going forward, but their efforts were in vain.

Chiefs stood firm in their defending and continued to attack. In the 64th minute a Tshabalala corner kick was met by a superb header from Erick Mathoho, who made it 2-0.

Six minutes later, Amakhosi turned on the heat when Tshabalala combined well with Bernard Parker, seeing off two defenders before a composed finish to make it 3-0, subsequently wrapping things up on the night. 

The third goal seemed certainly dampened the visitors spirit as the game turned into a one-sided affair, with Glamour Boys dominating the proceedings and substitute Mandla Masango almost made it 4-0 just before the end.

Chiefs join Wits and Platinum Stars in the semi-finals. The Clever Boys and Dikwena also put three past Bloemfontein Celtic and Free State Stars respectively.
