Cape Town - Kaizer Chiefs beat Golden Arrows 2-0 in an Absa Premiership game which was played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban on Wednesday night.

As a result the Amakhosi moved up to third spot on the league table, while Abafana Bes'thende stay in position six.

Both sides lacked precision in the final third to truly trouble the opposition defence in the opening 15 minutes of the game.

But the deadlock was finally broken in the 29th minute and it was Bernard Parker, who headed home Ramahlwe Mphahlele's cross to make it 1-0 to Chiefs.

Arrows did try to restore parity before the half-time break. However, Chiefs stood firm at the back until the match referee blew the half-time whistle.

The home side began the second-half brightly applying some pressure on the Chiefs defence in search of the equalizing goal.

Brilliant Khuzwayo, the Chiefs goalkeeper, produced a breathtaking save just before the hour-mark denying Arrows forward Andile Fikizolo.

Nevertheless, Siphiwe Tshabalala made it 2-0 to Chiefs from Joseph Molangoane's well-taken cross in the 79th minute as the visitors walked away victorious.
