AMAKHOSI FANS....

20 Sep 22:36

MATCH REPORT:

Orlando Pirates was really the only team that could stop the ever dominating Kaizer Chiefs but they failed to take their chances and in this case Brilliant Khuzwayo put in a sterling display between the sticks for Amakhosi.

Important Bucs' players (Klate, Manyisa, Erasmus, Majoro) could not emerge and break down the Chiefs defence. Vermezovic took too long to ring the changes and did not work in his favour.

Kaizer Chiefs were not only fantastic in defence but in all sections of the field with Willard Katsande and Reneilwe Letsholonyane were sternly brilliant in offence and defence helping Amakhosi push on for a tough victory.

For now though, PEACE SIGNS instead of CROSSED ARM GESTURES!
