Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs were at their clinical best with an emphatic 3-0 win over Bidvest Wits in an Absa Premiership match at the Bidvest Stadium on Wednesday night.

As it happened: Wits v Kaizer Chiefs
 
A brace from Bernard Parker and a goal from Erick Mathoho handed the Amakhosi their tenth league win of the season which sees them 11 points clear at the top of the table.
 
The loss for Wits sees them drop to sixth place with 20 points after suffering their fifth loss of the season.
 
Parker opened the scoring in the 21st minute after latching onto a knock-on header from Kingston Nkhatha and then proceeding to fire past Moneeb Josephs from 14-yards out on the left side of the small box, 1-0.
 
The home side, though, nearly hit back seven minutes later when Sameehg Doutie saw his volley from just outside the box strike the left post before going out of play.
 
Chiefs doubled their lead in the 37th minute after Mathoho headed home a pin-point free-kick from Siphiwe Tshabalala to take them into the break at 2-0.
 
Wits dominated the second half with almost 70 percent of the possession, but they could not break down a resolute Chiefs defence.
 
Instead, against the run of play, the Amakhosi put the match to bed with their third goal in the 70th minute.
 
It was some great build-up play for Chiefs that led to the goal when George Maluleke played Parker through on goal and he calmly chipped the ball over an surging Josephs to make it 3-0 and wrap up the tie.

Wits (0) 0
