20:09 - So that's that folks. SuperSport United have come from a goal down to beat Kaizer Chiefs 3-1 and move to the top of the log. Well done to them! See you next time!

19:58 - Baxter is visibly distressed. "Certainly now there are big questions to be asked by our club," he lamented after his side's loss today.

19:55 - SuperSport United coach Cavin Johnson says his team can now play on the floor and in the air. He is well-pleased with the result. "Three goals against Kaizer Chiefs. That's a good win," he said.

19:50 - Full-time! That's it folks! United walk away victors after going behind to a first-half goal from Chiefs. Three well-earned goals in the second-half see the home team take the three points.

19:49 - We are in the last minute of time added on at Lucas Moripe Stadium. Mantsantsantsa look to be winners here today after a glorious comeback.

19:47 - SuperSport are the only team with a perfect record in the season so far. If they hold on to win this one they go top of the log. Chiefs on the other hand will stay in fifth spot if they end this game as losers.

19:33 - Fantastic turnaround from Mantsantsantsa today. Could there still be more goals here??? A way back for Chiefs perhaps?

19:31 - It is! Grobler takes it and scores. GOAL!!! United are 3-1 up!

19:30 - Oh! Was that a penalty??? Chenene brought down in the box... Awaiting the refs call here - Chiefs could be in trouble!

19:29 - Chiefs have taken their foot of the gas a bit in the second-half and succumbed to the pressure from United.  

19:28 - Chenene scores to put United in the lead!

19:27 - GOAL!!!

19:25 - The game is opening up nicely now. Both teams are pressing to score - let's hope they keep this up.

19:23 - United attack now but the shot from Mathebula is blocked by Tshabalala, who was quick to get back there.

19:21 - SuperSport have had more ball possession in the second-half so far. 57% to Chiefs' 43

19:19 - Chiefs with a great chance to take the lead again, but after a goal-mouth scrap SuperSport breathe a sigh a relief as the chance goes begging.

19:18 - Gaxa gets himself booked for a bad challenge on United's left-back.

19:17 - TWEET:

54' Goooooooooooooal Mkhabela WHAT A GOAL - @SuperSportFC

19:13 - Commentator said it quite aptly there: "Click, click - Bang!"

19:12 - Brilliant play from SuperSport there as Mkhabela unleashes a cracker! What a goal!

19:11 - GOAL!!!!

19:11 - United have a free-kick on the left - it goes to waste though.

19:06 - Amakhosi free-kick on the edge of the area. Parker and Tshabalala hovering over the ball. Tshabalala takes the kick but the ball lands safely in Williams' hands. No go for Chiefs! That was too easy for the keeper.

19:05 - Gaxa whips one in from the right but Williams clears to safety. Chiefs are at it again!

19:03 - Lucas Moripe Stadium is packed and seems a hive a activity. Let's hope the fans get treated to some more goals in the second-half. 

19:02 - The players have taken the field and are set to get the second-half started. Here we go. We're off...

18:46 - Chiefs in the lead as the players leave the field for half-time.

18:45 - One minute extra added as we approach half-time.

18:42 - Three minutes left in the first-half. Chiefs still looking stronger as the ball comes in over from Gaxa on the right and Tshabalala controls well with his first touch but fails to find the target and shoots over. 

18:40 - Katsande now enters the refs book for an illegal tackle.

18:36 - Matsantsantsa are giving the ball away too easily and as a result are allowing Amakhosi to counter-attack. Chiefs looking strong in attack and this could prove costly for United.

18:34 - TWEET:

Laaadumaaaa! - @LucasRadebe

18:31 - Parker slotted that one into the bottom right-hand corner after sending Williams the wrong way. Well-taken penalty.

18:30 - GOAL!!! Captain Parker scores from the spot!

18:29 - Gyimah yellow-carded for handball in the box.

18:28 - PENALTY!!! Chiefs with a chance here to score...

18:27 - Some brilliant defending from Gould as he thwarts a United attack.

18:23 - 23 mins played now - still no score. Amakhosi the better side so far???

18:21 - TWEET:

Williams pulls a brilliant save to deny Tshabalala. Good work by the United keeper - @OfficialPSL

18:18 - Lovely from Chiefs! After winning the ball back in midfield the ball is played out wide to Tshabalala, who shoots on-target but the attempt is saved by Williams in goal. That was close!

18:15 - SuperSport have a chance to take a shot at goal via a free-kick around 30 yards out. They fail to make it count though and Chiefs are back in possession.

18:11 - The players are passing the ball around nicely at Lucas Moripe Stadium let's hope it results in some goals today.

18:07 - Both teams settling down now after the opening five minutes. Chiefs looking the more eager side at this early stage with one shot at goal.

18:04 - Some good interplay on the edge of the area from Amakhosi. The eventual shot at goal from Lucky Baloyi goes wide.

18:03 - SuperSport attack now through the middle but the ball to the right-flank is poor and goes out of play.

18:00 - Chiefs get this much-awaited match underway and play the ball around well before trying to find Gaxa on the right. The pass is overhit though and goes out for a SuperSport throw-in.

17:46 - Judging from the comments on our Facebook page it looks like Amakhosi are favourites to win today. Here's what some people have to say:

Jurie Hoorn: Amakhosi, stop asking the obvious.

Kevin Khulekani: Amatsantsantsa apitoli ayeye.

Mashudu Ramulifho: Obvious Amakosi

17:45 - The official team line-ups have been issued. Check below to see who will be in action today.

17:38 - Kaizer Chiefs boss Stuart Baxter feels his team still need to improve defensively ahead of their clash with 2nd-placed SuperSport United today.

SuperSport hold the upper hand when it comes to previous meetings, with the two sides having met 45 times since 1990, with Matsatsantsa claiming 17 wins to Amakhosi’s 15.
