11 Mar 21:22

FULL TIME AT THE HARRY GWALA STADIUM

Martizburg United have beaten log leaders Kaizer Chiefs 1 - 0. Banda scored seconds coming on as a sub.

11 Mar 21:21
90'+3 - Chiefs looking for the equaliser, Gaxa hits the crossbar with a brilliant overhead kick and Mathoho drives a shot wide. It just won't go in for Chiefs. 
11 Mar 21:20
90'+2 - Free kick to Chiefs.  Delivered by high into the area by Tshabalala and Mashamaite flicks a header towards goal, Vries gets down to his right and pulls off a great save!
11 Mar 21:17
Three minutes will be added on.  
11 Mar 21:17
90' - Mngonyama breaks up another Chiefs attack. Surely he will win the Man of the Match award.
11 Mar 21:13
86' - Pantsil clears for Martizburg and they break quickly. Khune punches away a cross that came in from the right.
11 Mar 21:12
85' - Corner kick to Chiefs. Is this their chance?
11 Mar 21:11
83' - Tshabalala shoots, but straight Vries. Chiefs have 7 minutes plus added time to find an equaliser.
11 Mar 21:09
81' - Banda scores seconds after coming onto the field as a substitute. The corner picked him out right in the centre of the box. He had a free header and buried it!  Where were the Chiefs defence?
11 Mar 21:08
GOAL - MARTIZBURG UNITED!
11 Mar 21:07
80'- Corner to Martizburg as Mashamaite struggles to clear, the ball goes slices off his boot.
11 Mar 21:07
78' - Chiefs with a very quick breakout with Rusike leading the way. He finds Parker who looks for a charging Tshabalala down the right flank, but the pass is short and cut out by the Martizburg defence.  Parker should have done better.
11 Mar 21:04
76' - Great play by Mandaza as he holds the ball up and lays it off for Mkhize but his weak left-footed effort does not trouble Khune in the Chiefs goal.
11 Mar 21:02
73' - Maritzburg United substitutions: Mekoa is replaced by Sekotlong (tactical).  Anas is replaced by Mandaza (tactical).
11 Mar 20:59
72' - Yellow card to Anas for a flailing arm that catches Gaxa in the face.
11 Mar 20:59
71' - Kaizer Chiefs substitution. Letsholonyane is replaced by Masango (tactical).
11 Mar 20:57
Ajax Cape Town have equalised against Black Aces, Paulse the scorer, 1-1.
11 Mar 20:57
69' - De Jongh shoots from just outside the big box, but well wide. The Chiefs defence gave him a little too much space.
11 Mar 20:55
68' - Martizburg with a extended period of pressure. Chiefs will want to soak it up and get down the other end.
11 Mar 20:54
67' - Khune claims the corner confidently.
11 Mar 20:54
66' - Cele reacts quickly to lay off from Mabaso.  His shot takes a deflection and out for a corner.
11 Mar 20:51
63' - Chief substitution: Mthembu is replaced by Rusike (tactical).
11 Mar 20:50
Free State Stars take a 1- 0 lead against Moroka Swallows. Sekola scores his 10th goal of the season.
11 Mar 20:48
60' - The chances are coming thick and fast now.  Tshabalala and Parker combine, with Parker controlling well, stepping outside his marker and firing with his left foot. His shot flies just wide of the right hand upright.
11 Mar 20:46
58' - Corner to Chiefs but nothing comes from it and Chiefs clear fairly easily.
11 Mar 20:46

57' - Chiefs have the ball in the back of the net... disallowed!  The ref rules the ball had gone out of the field of play for a corner but Mathoho powered a header home from a cross on the left.

That was the correct decision the ball was indeed out off a Martizburg player. 

11 Mar 20:44
56' - Chiefs win free kick after a silly foul by Zulu on Maluleka.
11 Mar 20:43
55' - Pantsil has a chance for Martizburg as a ball is played in, but he can only head wide.
11 Mar 20:42
54' - Mkhize finds space on the right of the big box, he tries to cut back and pass into the middle, but Gaxa puts the ball out for a corner. Chiefs clear the corner, but not very convincingly. 
11 Mar 20:41
53' - The throw finds Maluleka who surges upfield and lays the ball off for Parker who tries to find Mthembu who slips and Martizburg win the ball back.
11 Mar 20:40
52' - Martizburg win a corner, but it is poorly taken.  The ball goes out for a Chiefs throw in.
11 Mar 20:39
51' - Great delivery by Parker and Mashamaite heads over!
11 Mar 20:38
50' - Free kick to Chiefs in a dangerous position, near the byline on the left hand side.  Tshabalala was the man brought down. The two big centre backs of Chiefs move forward.
11 Mar 20:37
49' - A very scrappy start to the second half, both teams losing possession easily.
11 Mar 20:34
46' - Letsholonyane tries to find Parker with a inch perfect pass, but it is cut out by the alert Martizburg defence.
11 Mar 20:33

HALF TIME AT HARRY GWALA STADIUM

No goals at half time, but teams with a number of chances. Mkhize spurned an early chance for Martizburg when he shot wide with no defenders around him and Letsholonyane had the best chance of the night for Chiefs, but he took to long to shoot and the ball was cleared.

11 Mar 20:17
45' +1 - Chiefs win a corner which causes all kinds of trouble for Martizburg with Mashamaite, but eventually they managed to clear up field.
11 Mar 20:16
45' - Chiefs looking for a goal before half time, Maluleka does well to ride a challenge on the right, gets cross in but headed away by the Maritzburg defence.

Sundowns on fire, they now lead 3 - 0 against Polokwane City. Billiat has scored the third goal.
