Port Elizabeth - Kaizer Chiefs were frustrated by a 10-man Chippa United side in their goalless Absa Premiership encounter at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The game had a rather slow start as both sides were happy to get a feel of things first, but it was the visiting Amakhosi who sparked the game into life around the 20th minute when they stepped on the gas in search of an opener.

Chippa United were forced into many challenges due to Chiefs’ quick attacks on the break but the visitors almost fell behind when Molangoane was handed a juicy chance after the 30-minute mark which he overcooked when he tried to chip the ball over Itumeleng Khune and had to watch it sail over the crossbar.

A few moments later, Molangoane received his marching orders following a late tackle on Reneilwe Letsholonyane and a second yellow card.

Kaizer Chiefs continued to push forward in search of the opener but the final touch was always letting them down, and the half-time break arrived with deadlock yet to be broken.

The Chilli Boys were holding their own against the reigning league champions as both sides exchanged attacks in the opening few minutes of the second stanza. Roger Sikhakhane’s charges almost grabbed the lead in the 73rd minute but Khune’s stretched foot denied the hosts a vital goal.

The Glamour Boys added numbers into their attacks as the clock was running down in an effort to find the crucial winner, and Khune came to Amakhosi’s rescue once again in the dying moments of the game when he rushed out to make a save.

The visitors continued to press for the opener but Chippa were not willing to let them in and 0-0 is how the game ended.
