Premier Soccer League Kaizer Chiefs Platinum Stars

Posted: 9 December 2014 Time: 18:35

Log leaders Kaizer Chiefs twice came from behind to draw 2-2 with Platinum Stars in the Absa Premiership on Tuesday night.

Strikes from Robert Ng'ambi and Eleazar Rodgers put Chiefs under pressure but they preserved their unbeaten run in the League via goals from Siphiwe Tshabalala and Tefu Mashamaite at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

The result leaves Amakhosi 14 points clear of second-placed champions Mamelodi Sundowns, who have two games in hand ahead of Wednesday's trip to Orlando Pirates.

Stars, who handed Chiefs their only loss of 2014/15 in the Telkom Knockout in October, improve one spot in the standings to 12th at the expense of University of Pretoria.

Dikwena started brightly, as Ng'ambi calmly beat Brilliant Khuzawayo 12 minutes in after being released one-on-one by Solomon Mathe. Mathe laid on the pass after catching Reneilwe Letsholonyane in possession.

Chiefs, though, hit back four minutes later, as Tshabalala steered in a cross from overlapping left-back Tsepo Masilela, with goalkeeper Kabelo Dambe punished for failing to gather the delivery.

Both teams threatened afterwards, but the visitors made it count on the stroke of half-time as Rodgers reacted first to slot home a loose ball in the box following a miscued shot from teammate Thabiso Semenya.

The second period saw chances at either end, with Dambe notably making two top saves to foil Kingston Nkhatha and keep out a deflected effort from George Maluleka.

However, Dambe was beaten in the 62nd minute when Mashamaite rose impressively to nod in a telling cross from the right by Tshabalala.

Allan Freese's side nearly snatched the points late on but substitute Mogakolodi Ngele, on for Ng'ambi, had a low shot on the turn parried away by Khuzwayo.

I'm not very much disappointed by the results but by the fact that we gave away silly goals. If you look at the past two games we played before this one this is not a bad result. We beat a tough Wits on Wednesday and had only 2 days to rest against the Rats who had an extra day to rest. With a bit of luck we could have taken all the 3 points but I take this point.

It is a good thing that Chiefs play every game to win. This means the games that we shud lose we shall draw. We are still looking good.

According to the fickle fans Baxter is to blame for Yeye's casualty and Masha's complacency.

Gould did nothing wrong.

Maluleka had a good game

Lebese was not bad either

Nothing wrong with the chance the whole team was just complacent in the 1st half.

This is wat i m talking about,nice match u cud c that Baxter went for broke n thru everything at Stars.Had it been my beloved pirates trailing,u wud hv seen sum strange subs n end up luzing.

i wud understand when a team loses while showing intentions to win than stick to a useless formation.

this is wat fans go to the stadium to c coaches that think n not chancers.

Great display of character from glamour boys. What I can say about player's performance is Khuzwayo is not Khune and Nkatha is just Nkatha

He's a masterminder, only against Chiefs. This is a major problem with the local coaches. They only seem to have perfect game plans against the big three. Watch Platinum Stars in their next game, they will be totally a different team. Mxm!

Rats, we are behind all the way tomorrow. Remember a couple of seasons back we beat Ajax for you, now it's your turn to return the favour.
