Vasco da Gama deny Kaizer Chiefs three points

Posted: 1 March 2011 Time: 22:01

Kaizer Chiefs endured a frustrating goalless draw against Vasco da Gama on a hot Tuesday night at Athlone Stadium.

The first half was for the most part evenly balanced – Vasco were not unduly troubled, though it was Chiefs who certainly enjoyed the edge.

Chances though were few and far between with Mthokozisi Yende managing a weak attempt before Tlou Molekwane forced keeper Posnett Omony to fist the ball to safety with a rocket of a shot after 22 minutes.

The half at least ended with a bit of a flourish as first Vasco’s Keenin Lesch completely missed the ball when attempting a volley 12-yards out and then Abia Nale, clean through on goal, was denied by Omony, who made a brave save.

Amakhosi were on top after the restart, spending most of their time camped in the Vasco half.

But the home side’s defence was rock solid, with Mokete Tsotetsi in particular in superb form against his former team, meaning that the visitors struggled to find any space in and around the box.

The introduction of both Stanton Lewis and Knowledge Musona added fire-power, yet neither were able to get on the end of any clear-cut chances as Chiefs continued to be frustrated.

The draw gives Orlando Pirates and Ajax Cape Town the chance to steal an advantage over the Phefeni Glamour Boys in the title race on Wednesday while Vasco move another point closer to a second season in the top flight.

HAHAHAHAHAAHAHA. They couldn't beat Vasco in two league games. All the Chiefs fans said they would be top...well it hasn't happened and it will not happen.

Orlando Pirates: They're not inside, they're on TOP.

As much they were bragging about having 4 points against 1 for us this season, what about Vasco against them? Lol...this team is pathetic...they fail to beat rookies twice...and how many times did we beat this team this season?mxm

Zakes, are you realizing now that your team lacks quality and they won as a result of our mistakes the first two games? This is a mediocre team with a loud mouthed fans led by their coach. They forget that in sport business is done in the pitch but not at the press conference...Mr 'PRO' VV...again can anyone tEll me where is Mosono cos reports are that AWOL hence he was absent in last night's game? Lol...where is that cow or must I say a missing lamb?

So Vose Vorino opted for one leg again, Chips must wake up and smell the draw and third spot, Must Pirates still make a photocope, or is 26-One-Leg- Feb-FC who were supposed to make a photocopy on the 90th second of the derby last week Satturday. At Bucs we conquer no no surrender.

Without SA best player, Chiefs doesnt have luck and no one is willing to take the responsibility of launching de attacks. Shabba We will miss you if you leave the end of season. Headless chickens Masango and obviously Yende don't have a killer instinct.
