Leaders Chiefs top SuperSport

2012-11-10 22:16

Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs restored their four-point lead at the top of the Absa Premiership with a 2-1 win over SuperSport United at a rainy Peter Mokaba Stadium on Saturday night.
 
Striker Lehlohonolo Majoro continued his excellent form with two goals, while Kermit Erasmus scored Matsatsantsa’s consolation strike.
 
Chiefs were the first team to settle into a rhythm and opened the scoring midway through the first half. Siphiwe Tshabalala provided a low cross from the left flank and Lehlohonolo Majoro was left unmarked, easily finding the back of the net from close range.
 
Yet the Soweto side’s lead lasted just 10 minutes, as SuperSport levelled just after the half hour mark. A ball played across the middle of the park was whipped into the back of the net by Kermit Erasmus, who beat goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune’s right hand.
 
The teams exchanged periods of dominance in the remainder of the first half and the opening phase of the second, though Matsatsantsa were hit by an ankle injury to striker Atusaye Nyondo, which saw him replaced by Thabiso Nkoana.
 
On 65 minutes Chiefs surged back in front through another well-taken goal by Majoro. On this occasion the forward fended off the attentions of Mor Diouf to slide home a diagonal long-ball from defender Eric Mathoho.
 
Though United pushed hard for an equaliser late in the game, it was Chiefs who came closest to adding to the score in the 88th minute when Bernard Parker hit the post and substitute Kingston Nkhatha just missed out on the rebound.

    I like the way Chiefs play, they score playing passing game and also on route 1 situation, positioning ka Majoro is spot on and he seems a good poacher, well done to players and technical team

    I love the determination shown by our players this season...Shabba is not on form but he's doing a lot of defensive work which makes the workload of our defence a bit lighter. When he gets that form and confidence back, we'll be even more impossible to beat(if there's even such a thing).

      luvuyo.zihle - 2012-11-11 11:14

      My friend shaba is expirience nd dg player as wel .We will get a lot frm hm 4gat abt form is on de way.

    Well done boys, lets do it

  • mmoledis - 2012-11-12 11:02

    Well done Makhosi, but warning! do not be carried away by those wins as it is too early, we need a clear stand by opening the gap seriously at least be 10 or 12 points ahead of second place then we will by so doing be preparing ourselves for bigger things to come. The machine is well oiled and greased.

      cassels.madingwane - 2012-11-12 12:14

      I agree with you but the target should be 35 points in 15 matches and 60+ for the rest of the second half of the season! Brilliant start nevertheless...Lets let the other teams worry about gaps though! If we continue focusing on our games and improving it, what other teams do won't matter much. So far we are all happy, consistency is there and we're winning more than we are drawing matches plus we are playing an attacking football whilst conceeding less.

  • cassels.madingwane - 2012-11-12 12:03

    Let us not forget that Kaizer Chiefs has struggled in cup matches before we get ahead of ourselves. Its good to see three strikers hitting form at the same time but this league season will be won by a team with the deepest depth in their squad! The only team that will test Kaizer Chief's strength both in defence and attacking is Orlando Pirates.

  • nhlapop - 2012-11-12 12:25

    If we can keep number one spot till december, then i will confident that we can win the league, we still have to play Swallows, Platinum Stars, Ajax, Pirates and UP. Tough games indeed.
