Cape Town - Goals from Buyani Sali
and Lerato Manzini secured a sixth place finish for Chippa United in
the 2015-16 Absa Premiership, the Chilli Boys beating Kaizer Chiefs
2-0 at FNB Stadium on Saturday.
A 13th win of the season
handing Chilli Boys their best ever finish in South Africa's top-flight.
The Amakhosi subsequently
succumb to a fifth place finish, a massive 25 points behind champions Mamelodi
Sundowns who set a new top flight record of 71 points from 30 games.
It was another game to forget
for the Glamour Boys with Sali sliding the ball past Itumeleng Khune on 17
minutes to open the scoring on the day.
Chiefs have been wasteful in
front of goal all season and after Eric Mathoho headed over from six yards in
the 65th minute the Chilli Boys doubled their lead.
Manzini sending Dan Malesela
Steve Komphela withdrew
captain Siphiwe Tshabalala with 13 minutes remaining with his last role of the
dice, but nothing seems to going the Glamour Boys way as they now set their
sights on coming back stronger next season.
