Chiefs thump Wits

Posted: 29 November 2009 Time: 18:00

Kaizer Chiefs kept their faint hopes of challenging for the Absa Premiership alive with a morale-boosting 3-0 win over Bidvest Wits on Sunday.

The win moves Amakhosi to within nine points of leaders and defending champions SuperSport United, who have 37 points with Chiefs on 28.

But the game only came alive after the break when Chiefs took the game to their opponents, with goals from Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Abia Nale and Josta Dladla.

The best moment of the first-half came when referee Buyile Gqubule blew for halftime; it was a poor first half in which neither side managed to get going in the Johannesburg sun.

Chiefs coach Vladimir Vermezovic decided to bring back his number one goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune after three-and-a-half months out with an injured finger. But Khune could have stayed at home as all he had to do in the opening period was deal with a half-hearted shot from Patrick Phungwayo in the 31st minute.

But Chiefs went for the kill in the second and looked in a different class against a side which looked like they were playing for a draw - a tactic which backfired badly.

Wits keeper Chansa came to the rescue in the 49th minute when he beat Masango to a dangerous cross from Nkosinathi Nhleko and managed to stop the Amakhosi midfielder hitting the target from close range.

Then Nhleko set up Nale in the 58th minute and the Chiefs winger shaved the upright with a fierce drive.

Chansa dived bravely at Masango's feet on 61 minutes and then spoilt the save by making a meal of diving on the loose ball.

But in the 69th minute Chansa showed his incredible reflexes when he stopped a goal-bound close-range shot from Nale to keep the home side in the game.

But the pressure had to pay off for Amakhosi, and this time Chansa was helpless as substitute Dladla rounded the Students keeper and laid off the ball to Letsholonyane who tapped home into an empty net in the 77th minute.

Nale beat Phungwayo inside his penalty area and slotted home to make it 2-0 in the 85th minute.

Then came the cherry on top when Dladla, a former Wits star, blasted home the third goal in the 90th minute much to the delight of the 5 000 odd Chiefs fans that packed the stadium.

Haskins' substitution proved to be costly for the clever boys. His absense in the middle of the park relieved the Amakhozi midfield who had the liberty to more exploring runs in the Wits half.
I find it ironic that Wits have lost all the games where Haskins was substituted.

its a pity they are playing for pride and to at least secure top 8-their coach have already said that they are not league contenders

we are glad that thye have thrown in the Blanket besides they never stood a chancemin hell

its shocking to realise that the chiefs attacking players only scored their 1st goal after 15 matches
Josta Dladal played 14 matches and one sub perhaps and he only scored his 1st league goal

Nale -played 9 matches including comeptetion he scored his second professional goal

DIsgusting period

Winning the league is not in our minds at the moment. We just striving to collect maximum points in each and every game we play.

“Be patient and you will finally win” (Proverbs 28:13)

When you easily pick bitterness, jealousy, and pure evil from your rivals’ comments, you should know you are on the right track. When you are good you are good and your rivals will envy you and make nasty comments to try to get you off track. But when you have a winning mentality like that of Kaizer Chiefs, your rivals will never succeed in their evil plots

At first (in the first half, I thought the game gonna be one of those poor display since the coach said we are not looking to challenge for the league.....but hey, second half was the best.....PRESSURE, PRESSURE AND MORE PRESSURE.
