Mamelodi Sundowns beat Kaizer Chiefs 2-0

Posted: 1 May 2011 Time: 18:05

Mamelodi Sundowns lifted themselves to third on the League table and gave their title hopes a boost with a 2-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

Goals from Nyasha Mushekwi and Elias Pelembe secured the victory for the Brazilians, taking them five points adrift of leaders Ajax Cape Town with a game in hand.

Amakhosi are six points back from the top with just two rounds of the season remaining.

The match started at a furious pace, and Chiefs created better chances in the first half; three times they broke the Sundowns offside trap but they were unable to capitalise on the opportunities.

Mandla Masango had two of the chances, first being brilliantly challenged by makeshift right-back Siyabonga Ngubane, the second time curling his shot wide of the far post.

Josta Dladla also went one-on-one with Waynde Sandilands after a great pass from Mthokozisi Yende but was denied by the goalkeeper.

Just past the half-hour mark Sundowns broke the deadlock.

Chiefs were unable to clear their lines after repeated attempts on goal from Teko Modise and Katlego Mphela.

Eventually Mphela guided the ball away from traffic in the middle of the box towards Nyasha Mushekwi, who took advantage of poor positioning from Itumeleng Khune to score with a left-footed shot.

And just seven minutes into the second stanza, the Brazilians doubled their lead.

Mphela was again the architect, providing a looping cross from the right of the penalty area, and Pelembe crashed home an unstoppable volley.

Chiefs reacted by using all three substitutions within 11 minutes of going 2-0 down and they proceeded to dominate the remainder of the game.

However, they were unable to find a way past Man of the Match Sandilands, who made several excellent saves.

Sundowns could have even added to the scoreline through Mphela, who found himself one-on-one with Khune, but his chipped finish drifted just wide of the post.

Come on now maSandawana, let's not ululate and break dishes over this triumph like abo All Psl Troubles and other Chips did last night, we will leave that to abo tebo-touch nabo Kidkudu especially since we will need them very soon.

Eintlek, Chiefs is a big, big team (even more so in rural areas) lol, so I do'nt see them loosing 3 games in a row, so they'll beat Ajax for us.

Downs for title no.6! Yellow! Yeeeeeeeehaaaa!

Eish Makhosi Sunkak whipped us bad. We played some fantastic football but we lwt ourselves down. We could have easily gone 2-0 up in the first half and Sunkak wud not have recovered. Eish Makhosi I've said many times that this Masanga boy is useless. What kind of a striker goes the whole season without scoring. Yende also is at times useless. And why did VV start Shabba on the bench ? At the end of the day it was not our day cos we played better futball than Sunkak. At least I find solace in the knowledge that Ajax will definately win the lig n not the 2 teams whose names - won't mention.

Yesterday I said it dat someone's season is over and someone thought i was crazy. They can play for sweets from now on. You lose to Barobe fc and then u think you can take chances with Downs? Go compete with vodacom affiliated teams first and then you can start dreaming.

Now that we are out of the race VV must start preparing for next season starting next week in our game against Ajax. It's time to see what the ada players who haven' seen game time during the year can do. I mean the likes of Mbooi, Mateba and others. There is nothing to gain from winning against Ajax. Phela Chiefs is a big team and we shud neva reduce ourselves to boMasenyeletsa.
