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 into delirium. 

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. 

Kaizer Chiefs (0) 0

Chippa United (1) 2 (Sali 17' Manzini 66')
