Absa Premiership Chippa United Mamelodi Sundowns

Posted: 22 October 2014 Time: 21:38

Chippa United drew 1-1 with champions Mamelodi Sundowns on Wednesday, with Thamsanqa Sangweni scoring a superb goal before getting sent off for the Chilli Boys.

Sundowns opened the scoring via Cuthbert Malajila in the 30th minute, but Sangweni equalised with a curling free-kick against his former side on the hour-mark at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

Sangweni was given his marching orders with four minutes to go after receiving a second caution for holding back Tebogo Langerman.

The Brazilians started positively and applied pressure form the word go – they finally made it count when a mistake in the Chippa defence allowed Khama Billiat to steal the ball and unselfishly square for Malajila who scored into an empty net, 1-0.

The visitors could not add to their goal tally and were made to pay in the second half after a spirited performance from Chippa United.

The home side began seeing more of the ball in the second 45 and found their reward with the equaliser in the 60th minute courtesy of a Sangweni strike, 1-1.

Downs tried to find a winner after that, but the closest they came was a Mario Booysen header in the 80th minute that was well-saved by the keeper.

Despite earning a share of the spoils, the night did end on a rather sour note for Chippa following the dismissal of Sangweni, who picked up an automatic two-match ban.

The draw is Sundowns' third of the season and sees them stuck in fourth place on the log with 15 points from their nine games, a staggering 10 points adrift of current league leaders Kaizer Chiefs, who drew 1-1 with Moroka Swallows in a simultaneous fixture.

Chippa, on the other hand, despite many expecting them to struggle this season are up to eighth on the table with 14 points, only three points adrift of second-placed Ajax Cape Town.

How did Billiat get man of the match? He was playing off position. Chippa matched us at our game and didn't park the bus.

See the advantage Sundowns had against small teams last season, it was their loaning policy... As soon as it ends they are struggling now, i mean Sangweni proved it all...

This is a new season Khosi just move on forget about your mishap, your team lost the league that is done and dusted.

Baloyi is also your player he scored against you there is no difference with what Sangweni did.

I guess based on your statement Chiefs is also a small team because they lost against Sundowns last season.

Chippa are like aces, very tough to beat. Wish we collected maximum points, but lets march on

Langerman was a better candidate for man of the match however i think without Teko Modise the team lacks vision,although we have an abundance of talent at the team we just dont have a player that can replace him.Our defence also was a bit suspect, without Schut,Moriri and Modise in the field of play its always goin to be difficult.Teko really is a Navigator for the yellow nation,hard luck to my team
