Kaizer Chiefs 1 - 0 Black Aces

18 wins in a row for Chiefs now, can anyone stop them?  Masango with the only goal of the game in the 59th minute. 

Chiefs are 16 points clear at the top of the table!
20 Dec 17:20
91' +1 - Chiefs break quickly, the ball comes to Rusike in space, he shoots but hits the left hand upright and the ball goes out of play.
20 Dec 17:18
90' - There will be four minutes of added time.  Can Aces find an equaliser?
20 Dec 17:16
87' - Chiefs substitution. Masango is replaced by Rusike.
20 Dec 17:12
83' - Free kick to Chiefs, swung in from the left, but claimed by Aces keeper, Mabokgwane.
20 Dec 17:08
79' - Aces substitution.  Mbesuma is replaced by Okonkwo.
20 Dec 17:07
77' - Masango has a chance to finish Aces off, Masango one on one with the keeper, but he shoots straight at him and Mabokgwane saves.  Credit to the keeper, he came off his line and put Masango under pressure, forcing him to shoot early.
20 Dec 17:05
75'  - Chiefs happy to let Aces have the possession, they have men behind the ball, protecting their lead.
20 Dec 17:03
LAW 10 - THE METHOD OF SCORING - A goal is scored when the whole of the ball passes over the goal-line, between the goalposts and under the crossbar, provided that no infringement of the laws of the game has been committed previously by the team scoring the goal.
20 Dec 17:00
Replays of the earlier Black Aces effort through Ngoma that hit the underside of the crossbar show that the ball very close to crossing the line...
20 Dec 16:59
70' - Chiefs finding plenty of space down the left but unfortunately the pass by Masilela goes out of play.  He really should have done better than that.
20 Dec 16:56
67' - Chiefs looking for the second, but Letsholonyane stooping low, heads wide.  He would have been better off using his feet in that situation.
20 Dec 16:54
65' - Chiefs substitution. Nkhatha is replaced by Maluleka.
20 Dec 16:52
64' - Kaizer Chiefs substitution.  Tshabalala is replaced by Gould.
20 Dec 16:51
61' - Aces substitution.  Nale is replaced by Timm.
20 Dec 16:50
60' - Masango, who hasn't scored since September is the man to put Chiefs in the lead with a headed goal following a pinpoint cross from Nkhatha on the right.
20 Dec 16:48
20 Dec 16:47
59' - Corner to Aces, cleared by Chiefs as far as Tukane, he volleys well over.
20 Dec 16:43
54' - Masango has a shot from range for Chiefs, but it flies wide of the right hand upright.  The keeper would have had it covered if it was on target.
20 Dec 16:41
52' - Mbesuma is fouled but nothing is given by the ref, Mbesuma very unhappy with the official and is booked for some backchat. 
20 Dec 16:40
50' - What a shot from Ngoma, the Aces man saw the keeper off the line and he let fly. Unlucky for him, it hit the crossbar.
20 Dec 16:37
48'  - The corner is easily dealt with by the Aces defence.  
20 Dec 16:36
47'  - Early free kick to Chiefs as Nkhatha is fouled. Mabokgwane comes for the ball, but he spills it and it goes out for a corner.

Free State Stars 1 - 0 Platinum Stars

20 Dec 16:18


Kaizer Chiefs 0 - 0 Black Aces

Both teams have had some chances but no goals as of yet.

20 Dec 16:17
45' - Chiefs looking to score before half time but Mabokgwane does well to parry a cross away.
20 Dec 16:13
41' - Great chance for Chiefs, a cross is swung in from the right and Bukenya manages to head over almost from right under the crossbar!
20 Dec 16:11
40' - Parker seeing a lot of the action for Chiefs, he has a shot blocked by the Aces defence.
20 Dec 16:07
36' - Nkhatha goes down again under a challenge from Gyimah who is booked for his challenge.
20 Dec 16:06
34' - Great work from Chiefs again, Masilela receive the ball on the left hand side, he slides a cross into the path of Parker but his attempt is wide of the left hand upright.
20 Dec 16:03
31' - Tukane was booked for that challenge.
20 Dec 16:03
31' - Free Kick to Chiefs as Nkhatha is brought down by TukaneParker blasts the free kick straight into the wall.
20 Dec 16:01
Possession stats fairly even so far this half.  Chiefs have had 52% of the ball so far.
20 Dec 16:00
28' - Free kick to Chiefs after Nkhatha is clipped from behind.  Ball floated into the area, easily claimed Mabokgwane.
20 Dec 15:58
26' - Action down the other end, a brilliant ball over the top from Bukenya finds Letsholonyane on the right hand side of the big box, he controls brilliantly and crosses into the box, the ball is intercepted by the Aces defence.
20 Dec 15:56
25' - Ndoro is causing all sorts of trouble for the Chiefs defence.  This time he shoots across goal from a very tight angle after a neat one-two.
20 Dec 15:53
22' - The corner does cause massive problems for Aces.  Parker flicked it on towards Nkhatha who has to stoop low and can't control his header towards goal, it flies over the bar.
20 Dec 15:52
21' - Corner to Chiefs, can they cause some problems for the Aces defence.
20 Dec 15:51
19' - Credit to Khuzwayo he parried Ndoro's first effort into the upright.
20 Dec 15:50
18'  - Two great chance for Aces and on both occasions it is Ndoro who causes all sorts of problems for the Chiefs defence.  First he hit post, after a cross from the left and then a few seconds later he steered the ball towards goal, but cleared off the line by a Chiefs defender.  
20 Dec 15:47
15'  - A ball over the top looking for Mbesuma but well dealt with by Mathoho in the Chiefs defence and he clears easily.
20 Dec 15:45
