09 Dec 21:17
88' - Rodgers has other ideas though, he climbs above the Chiefs defence for a free header from a free kick, but steers it over the bar.  That was a chance to win it for Stars!
09 Dec 21:15
88' - Chiefs attacking play has gone off the boil here, but they still look the most likely team to get a winner.

09 Dec 20:56

09 Dec 20:53
65' - It's all Kaizer Chiefs at the moment!
09 Dec 20:53

09 Dec 20:50
62' -  Chiefs have threatened a goal and now they score.  A brilliant cross from Tshabalala and Mashamaite rises above the Stars defence to glance a header home.  Great goal by Chiefs!
09 Dec 20:48
GOAL - KAIZER CHIEFS!

09 Dec 20:38
50' - Platinum Stars with the early running this half.  Rodgers winning a long ball in the air, eventually coming to Semenya but his wayward shot threatens the corner flag more than the goal.  
09 Dec 20:35
48' - Chiefs will be hoping for a tighter display from their defence this half.
09 Dec 20:33

***HALF TIME IN POLOKWANE***

Chiefs 1-2 Platinum Stars

09 Dec 20:17
44' - A scrappy goal but Stars will take it.  Chiefs do not deal with cross and it comes out to Semenya whose scuffed shot comes to Rodgers who reacts before the Chiefs defence can.  He doesn't connect cleanly at all but it is enough to beat Khuzwayo.  Stars have the lead just before half time!
09 Dec 20:15
GOAL - PLATINUM STARS!
09 Dec 20:14
42' - Nothing comes from the Chiefs free kick.
09 Dec 20:14
42' - First yellow of the match to Semenya  after a foul on Letsholonyane.
09 Dec 20:11
40' - Great save by Khuzwayo from a thunderbolt from Rogers.   It goes out for a corner but easily dealt with by Chiefs.
09 Dec 20:10
38' - Poor Nkhatha!  He is through on goal after beating the offside trap, his first tough lets him down however and Dambe collects at his feet.
09 Dec 20:08
37' - Chiefs piling on the pressure, looking for a goal before half time.  Maluleka tries a shot from long range, but it flies wide of the left hand upright.
09 Dec 20:07
36' - Chiefs this time with a great attack, but the Stars defence managed to intercept and Dambe clears.
09 Dec 20:06
35' - A good period for Stars as they threaten the Chiefs goal again through Semenya but his shot drifts wide.
09 Dec 20:04
33' - Stars again putting Chiefs under immense pressure as Rogers wins a header against Gould and flicks it into the path of Ng'ambi.  The Chiefs defence managed to scramble back and snuff out the danger.
09 Dec 20:02
30' - Sloppy again from Chiefs, they gift the ball to Ng'ambi who tries an audacious chip after spotting Khuzwayo off his line but his effort is just over the bar.  What a goal that would have been!
09 Dec 19:59
28' - Masilela and Lebese combining well down the left for Chiefs.  They look a threat to the Stars defence.
09 Dec 19:55
24' -  Ng'ambi is a real threat to Chiefs tonight as he wins a corner, but it comes to nothing for Stars. 
09 Dec 19:53
21' - Free kick to Platinum Stars, swung in, but to long and claimed by Khuzwayo.
09 Dec 19:49
16' - It's that man Tshabalala.  Intially a cross from the right is just over Nkhatha.  It is collected on the left hand by line and a cross is swung into the big box by Masilela which eludes Dambe, the Stars keeper only for Tshabalala to tap home.
09 Dec 19:46
GOAL - KAIZER CHIEFS!
09 Dec 19:46
14' - Platinum Stars with some great movement and passing down the right with Ng'ambi prominent again. He shoots from distance but it is well over the bar.
09 Dec 19:44
13' - Chiefs getting into their stride now.  Lebese prominent but Platinum Stars managed to clear and break up field.  A poor cross however goes straight to a Chiefs player.
