Golden Arrows and Kaizer Chiefs draw League clash

Posted: 28 March 2012 Time: 21:39

Golden Arrows and Kaizer Chiefs earned a point each when their League clash ended in a 0-0 draw at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday night.

Both sides created a number of scoring chances on the night but they were constantly denied by some good goalkeeping at both ends of the field.

The visitors fired the first shot in anger in the fourth minute when George Lebese tested Nkosingiphile Gumede with a volley, but the goalkeeper was able to push the ball wide for a corner, while Philani Shange saw his shot blocked by Itumeleng Khune at the other end.

The Bafana Bafana goalkeeper was called into action again three minutes later to stop a brilliant curled effort from Siyabonga Nkosi who was looking to put one over his former club.

Defender Musa Bilankulu should’ve opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when he was left free in the box to connect with an in-swinging freekick from Dillon Sheppard, but somehow he headed narrowly wide.

That miss almost proved to be costly a minute later when Abia Nale found Mandla Masango inside the box, but his effort was denied by a great save from Gumede.

Then in the 25th minute Dillon Sheppard shot straight at Khune from the edge of the box, while Gumede was almost caught off guard by a long kick from his opposite number four minutes later.

Six minutes before the break Nkosi’s saw his cross sailing across the empty net, needing a touch from one of his teammates, but Arrows didn’t have enough numbers in the box, while Masango was denied by another good save from Gumede a minute later.

Muhsin Ertugral’s men came close to taking the lead five minutes after the break when Sheppard played a great ball through the middle to find Mbesuma, but the Zambian international’s shot crashed against the upright.

Nale continued to torment his former side and in the 55th minute his cross from the left was flicked on by Majoro, only for Lucky Baloyi to blast his shot over the crossbar, while Masango saw his shot blocked at the near post by Gumede five minutes later.

Then in the 63rd minute Khune was involved in a clash of heads incident with substitute Thamsanqa Gabuza when he came out to punch a dangerous cross, and the goalkeeper was unable to recover and had to be replaced by Arthur Bartman after a lengthy stoppage.

The delay affected the momentum of both teams as they started to give away possession cheaply after the restart and also resorted to wayward shots from range.

Subsitute Katlego Mashego came close to stealing the game for the home side in added time after receiving a cross from Thamsanqa Gabuza on the edge of the penalty area but his shot was tipped over the crossbar by Bartman.

The result sees Kaizer Chiefs failing to move up from fougth position on the log, while Golden Arrows also remain in 12th place.

unlike Chibuku fans who were happy with a point away from home wen they drew with Sundoms i'm nt happy with this draw. Anyway Chiefs has no away games so we dropped two points at home. Sundoms can be happy for getting a point away inn Bloem.

George Lebese is a useless player Makhosi. This boy has been given so much time to prove himself. He is lazy, does not exert himself. Let this boy go and join Sundunusa he is useless.

I wasted 45min of Champions league hoping that this useless team will get a win.

I don't see what pattern is VV playing really.Slow build ups of going forward.Favoritism is also his downfall.

I'm not happy at all with Masango & don't know why he has to finish the game.I'm sorry to say this but he's not exceptional talent & with new players coming he will end like Sibeko.He doesn't fall back to assist & whether he plays as a winger or 2nd striker only him & VV knows.

Same can be said about George Lebese's lack of influence as a winger.

As usual VV sticks with his friend Majoro & didn't even know that Nngcobo is back & I still maintain if this team could play him to his strength then he will bring different element than having 5 Majoro's.

This is just a bunch of useless boys & their coach but mainly playing without identity is a problem.

After the game this moegoe coach says its ok?

Everyone was kak.

I'm really pissed off with such pathetic play.Lebese & Masango don't serve a purpose if they are not gonna run at players because they are not markers.Why then don't you bring back Josta on the right with Parker on the left as they can run better than this boys & they also fall back.

Mandla was given a chance from last year but he is stagnant.I always say he lacks pace because he doesn't assist when possesion is lost,just an extra player when attacking.Majoro also is full of confidence for nothing.

@Tp I see u have found anada name in Ncobo to blame vv, he will field him for 90 minutes in the next game & he will play kak who are you going to call then? When we play against point donaters we will collect maximum points but when we play against determined teams we will strugle, you know why because we serious about profit making than team success. The sooner we look in retaining our top players the better our club success,
