Dikwena profit from wasteful Chiefs

Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs squandered chance after chance as Platinum Stars ran out unlikely 2-0 winners in the Premiership at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium on Wednesday.

After a slow start to the match, Kaizer Chiefs began to find their feet at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium and Camaldine Abraw wasted a great chance to put his side ahead in the 17th minute when he was completely unmarked in the box, but was still unable to hit the target with his header.

Three minutes later, Siphiwe Tshabalala showed his skill to beat a number of Dikwena defenders before laying it on a platter for Lucky Baloyi, who disappointingly pulled his shot wide.

They were made to pay for their profligacy in the 24th minute when Dumiso Mabena hit a speculative long-range effort that took a deflection off Erick Mathoho to beat Itumeleng Khune and give the home side the lead against the run of play.

Chiefs continued to push and shortly after half time, Tshabalala hit a powerful low drive that looked destined for the back of the net, but swung just wide.

There was a significant lull in the action as Platinum Stars were more effective in their defensive play, but Amakhosi always looked dangerous.

However, they conceded a penalty in the 78th minute when Parker was penalised for handling the ball in the box and a confident Mabena executed a cheeky, chipped shot from the spot to beat Khune and put his side two up.

Parker should have made amends two minutes later, but his night went from bad to worst when he inexplicably shot wide in front of an empty goal and Platinum Stars secured a fortunate 2-0 win.
