August has been quite a month for Amakhosi, they began their season with a 4-0 over Mpumalanga Black Aces in the MTN 8 Cup quarter-final match played at the FNB Stadium on the August 3. That would set the tone as the Glamour Boys drew inspiration from the Aces result to go on and kick-start the 2014/15 season with a hard fought win over Free State Stars in their own backyard on Women’s Day in QwaQwa.

Chiefs concluded the double over a re-organised and rejuvenated Aces with a 2-1 Absa Premiership win in Mbombela on August 13.

The triple riot act was muted over the North West based Platinum Stars in the space of twelve days, first a 2-0 win in the first Leg of the MTN 8 semi-final in Phokeng on August 16. The victory was dubbed the George Maluleka show after the midfielder scored an exquisite brace of goals. That was followed up by 1-0 win over a visiting Bloemfontein Celtic with Mandla Masango continuing in his goal scoring form.

The Glamour Boys secured a place in the MTN 8 final with a convincing 5-0 aggregate scoreline after handing Dikwena a 3-0 defeat. Four days later the Glamour Boys wrapped up their dominance over Stars with a 2-0 win, this time in the PSL. The August month winning streak was wrapped up on a chilly evening at home with a 2-0 win over SuperSport United.

According to Chiefs’ website, August saw Amakhosi score a whopping seventeen goals. The scorers were Masango with five, Maluleka with three, Reneilwe Letsholonyane with two, Kingston Nkhatha with two and Katlego Mphela with one.

In August, Tsepo Masilela notched up three Man of the Match accolades, followed by Letsholonyane with two and Masango, Tefu Mashamaite and Maluleka scooping the other three Man of the Match awards.
