Telkom Knockout quarter-final Kaizer Chiefs Platinum Stars

Posted: 26 October 2014 Time: 14:09

Holders Platinum Stars advanced to the Telkom Knockout semi-finals by edging Kaizer Chiefs 5-3 on penalties following a goalless 120 minutes of football at FNB Stadium on Sunday.

Chiefs dominated the contest but paid the price for poor finishing, as Luvolwethu Mpeta slotted the winning kick after substitute George Lebese was denied in the shootout by the impressive Siyabonga Mpontshane.

Dikwena will host Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns in the last-four, while Orlando Pirates will entertain SuperSport United.

Stuart Baxter's men started the tie strongly, and had a great chance to score in the 12th minute, but striker Kingston Nkhatha rattled the side-netting from close range after being played through by Mandla Masango. A minute earlier Stars' Thabiso Semenya drilled a long-range effort straight at the perfectly placed Brilliant Khuzwayo, who made no mistake.

Nkhatha threatened again on 30 minutes, as he flashed a shot across the face of goal from a tight angle in the box.

At the other end, Dikwena forward Ndumiso Mabena drew a smart save from Khuzwayo with a curling free-kick in the 39th minute.

Amakhosi then had two opportunities just before the interval, but Bernard Parker's first-time strike was straight at the alert Mpontshane, as was Nkhatha's brave diving header.

Nkhatha nearly caught out Mpontshane 10 minutes after the recess, but the keeper did well to backtrack and tip over a lofted effort from the industrious Zimbabwean.

Mpontshane made two further fine stops around the hour-mark, as he acrobatially gathered a reaction strike from Masango before dropping down smartly to foil a shot from Parker.

The Glamour Boys continued to press, as Man of the Match Siboniso Gaxa powered a free header over from a Parker delivery in the 72nd minute, with Nkhatha doing the same a minute later off a right-wing cross by 'Pa'.

Parker nearly decided affairs in stoppage time, but he glanced a Masango corner just wide of the target.

The first half of extra time saw Eleazar Rodgers balloon a wayward shot for Dikwena, while the opposing Siphiwe Tshabalala looped a header harmlessly over before substitute Siphelele Mthembu scuffed a deft flick-on in the area by 'Shabba'.

Tefu Mashamaite headed the ball home in the 106th minute, but the stand-in Chiefs skipper's effort was correctly disallowed for offside.

Shabba tried his luck in the 116th minute but his low shot on the angle could find no way past Mpontshane at the near post.

Allan Freese's charges went on to win the shoot-out, with Lebese the only man to miss from the spot. Stars scored via their captain Vuyo Mere, Rodgers, Mogakolodi Ngele, Tshepo Gumede and Mpeta, while Tshabalala, Masango and Kgotso Moleko were also successful with their attempts.

The battle of The average and The weak, yet again.

The question is: Who will emerge victorious?

Goog lineup Chiefs. I dont see a problem from any player in the Stars team but we must guard against complacency and silly mistakes. I challenge the boys to up their game and take the chances they missed against Swallows then we should be okay. Sorry Freese we need a win as much as ur team does.

Letter to Kick off  

We can not deny the love we have as supporters or soccer fans for this site, you are like a family to us and thank you for giving us the platform for us to express our views and because of you we feel they never go unheard.

As I said you are like a family, to all the editors we respect and I think you are blessed to do this kind of a job which is full of drama and excitement. I believe it everyone's wish to do the job they like and congratulations for that.

Point of Correction.

I do not know much I am still young and maybe I am  suffering from my ignorance of new trends. I know change is good however this site's new colour or new display is something that does not really go well. The design makes it hard to read, I know it new and probably I will get used to it but I still believe you did a great job on the previous design because it was simple and user friendly. I am fully aware you can not satisfy everyone-however this recent change is really hard to get used to.

Keep up the good work and please change if that possible where we are not happy.

Thank You
