***MATCH REPORT***

Chiefs started the match with a false No. 9 in the first half but it was Ajax who created more chances.  Chiefs in fact didn't have a shot on goal for the whole of the first half.  In the second half, they were the better side and created a few good chances.  

It was a set piece however in the 48th minute that undid Ajax as Mashamaite towered above the Ajax defence to power home a unstoppable header after a pin-point delivery by Tshabalala.

Chiefs great start to the PSL season continues.

***SECOND HALF UNDERWAY***

40 000 spectators at Cape Town Stadium for this encounter.

***FALSE 9 NOT WORKING***

Stuart Baxter's decision to play with a false No. 9 does not seem to be working, will he make the change at half time?

19 Oct 16:27

Chiefs have struggled so far today, no shots on target at all.  Ajax had some very good spells in the first half with Dollie looking very lively.
