    FULL-TIME: KAIZER CHIEFS 3-0 CAPE TOWN CITY. A far from convincing victory for Chiefs which still extends their lead at the top over Sundowns, while City just move closer to the relegation zone. Thank you for joining us.

  • 90'

    YELLOW! Maluleka concludes our bookings for the day. We will have four minutes of time added on for stoppages.

  • 87'

    YELLOW! Another booking and this time to Mpho, as the City man commits a silly foul.

  • 86'

    SUBSTITUTION: A final Chiefs now, as Parker is on for Manyama.

  • 83'

    YELLOW! After an altercation between Fielies and Mashiane, they are both booked.

  • 82'

    SUBSTITUTION: City make another change and Lakay is on for Ralani.

  • 80'

    City are now enjoying a period of sustained possession, but they are unable to do anything useful with it.

  • 77'

    City now launch and attack and at least it leads to a corner. Unfortunately the execution is poor and Chiefs clear.

  • 75'

    SUBSTITUTION: City now make a change and Shane Roberts replaces Mduduzi Mdatsane.

  • 72'

    YELLOW! Chiefs' Katsande is booked for a dangerous foul.

  • 70'

    That surely is GAME OVER! How can City get back into this now?

  • 68'

    GOAL, KAIZER CHIEFS, MATHOHO! (3-0) Mathoho heads home yet again after a superb set-piece from Maluleka. Once again Fielies is left wanting.

  • 66'

    A cross into the penalty area is headed home superbly by Nurkovic. Again it was poor City defending and this time Taariq Fielies in particular.

  • 64'

    GOAL, KAIZER CHIEFS, NURKOVIC! (2-0). And suddenly out of nothing it's 2-0. Chiefs have not been playing well over the last few minutes yet they score!

  • 60'

    Edmilson is luckily not to be booked after giving away a dangerous set-piece to Chiefs. Cardozo's attempt however is wide of goal.

  • 57'

    The game has fizzled out a bit now. Can City score and put the spark back?

  • 54'

    City then win a free-kick on the other side and again an opportunity is wasted!

  • 52'

    Maluleka is all over the set-piece and it flies over the cross-bar!

  • 50'

    Zuma is fouled and City concede a dangerous free-kick.

  • 49'

    SUBSTITUTION: We had a double change at the break for Chiefs. Mashiane is on for Baccus, while Zuma is on for Castro

  • 47'

    Kick-off! We are back underway in the second half.

  • 45'

    We will have four minutes of time added on for stoppages.

  • 45'

    HALF-TIME: KAIZER CHIEFS 1-0 CAPE TOWN CITY. Chiefs started like a house on fire and scored the early goal, but have since taken their foot of the pedal. City on the other hand took a while to get into the game.

  • 44'

    Ralani carves his way into the Chiefs penalty area and forces a fantastic SAVE out of Akpeyi!

  • 43'

    Edmilson is dispossessed by Castro and Chiefs launch an attack, but again the final shot is POOR!

  • 40'

    Chiefs secure another promising set-piece, but the execution from Maluleka is poor and Leeuwenburgh has it covered.

  • 36'

    It appear as if Chiefs have taken their foot of the pedal now. City must get credit for that.

  • 32'

    YELLOW! Cardosa is booked for Chiefs after a foul on Mdantsane.

  • 30'

    WIDE AGAIN! City are now probing the Chiefs goal and this time the final shot from Erasmus is just wide. Much better from City.

  • 28'

    WIDE! Makola makes his way into the Chiefs penalty area, but his final shot is wide. That looked promising.

  • 25'

    Cape Town City have struggled to get going and have not really been allowed to settle by Kaizer Chiefs.

  • 21'

    City finally get some ball and Martin flies down the right flank and they secure a free-kick after a silly foul by Katsande.

  • 18'

    Chiefs are looking the business here. Maluleka and Castro appear to be in top form this afternoon.

  • 15'

    The outstretched arms of Leeuwenburgh was not strong enough to keep out that powerful shot!

  • 11'

    GOAL, KAIZER CHIEFS, CASTRO! (1-0). Poor defending by City as they leave Castro free after a superb cross from Baccus and what a great finish by him!

  • 10'

    This time Maluleka concedes a corner after a promising City attack. The promising move ends with the flag going up for OFFSIDE!

  • 8'

    Maluleka has been involved quite a bit for Chiefs, as they are controlling the tempo of the game for now.

  • 4'

    We have a stoppage after a collision between Edmilson and Castro.

  • 3'

    The first corner of the afternoon is secured by Chiefs and after some scrambling defence somehow City keep it out.

  • 2'

    The pitch are brown in patches but should still be smooth..

  • 1'

    Kick-off! We are underway here at Soccer City.

  • 0'
