Kaizer Chiefs won their 7th game in a row, to take a 7 point lead over second place Ajax Cape Town in the PSL.  

Chiefs were perhaps fortunate to be awarded a penalty in the 44th minute, as there seemed to be very little contact between the Maritzburg defender and Masilela.  Masango converted from the spot.  The referee probably should have awarded a penalty earlier in the game for a handball by Maritzburg United's Pantsil but he waved away Chief's protests.

Maritzburg United played well at times and they did have some chances, but often shot off target.

Who can stop Chiefs?  They have only conceded 2 goals this season in all competitions and are playing some brilliant attacking football.
