Santos beat Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 22 April 2012 Time: 16:49

New Santos coach Maart Nooij recorded an impressive win on debut, leading The People's Team to a 2-1 victory against Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.

By the same token, it was a third successive loss for Chiefs caretaker coaches Doctor Khumalo and Donald Khuse, who were appointed following the sacking of Vladimir Vermezovic.

The first half saw Santos pinned back in their own half for the most part, unable to get any rhythm going in their play, ensuring Chiefs keeper Ithumeleng Khune was a virtual spectator.

The chances that did come fell to Chiefs, but they were not able to make proper use of their opportunities.

Siphiwe Tshabalala was doing his best to make things happen, getting in a couple of decent crosses and linking nicely with his team-mates around the box.

Lehlohonolo Majoro also had a few chances on goal, but he shot over the bar in the 11th minute and then shot weakly in the 39th minute after Lucky Baloyi had seen his shot strike the defender.

The second half was off to an action packed start as Santos went in front immediately after the break, thanks to a Salmaan King header from Thabiso Ntloana’s cross.

In the 47th minute it was 2-0 to the home side as Eleazar Rodgers showed good composure to pick out the far corner of the net after a superb through ball from Tyren Arendse.

For the remainder of the half the Cape side very much found themselves on the back foot as they faced one Chiefs attack after another.

With 20 minutes to go Chiefs were right back in the game when George Lebese nipped in to score after a mix-up between Nasief Morris and Wayne Arendse.

The pressure continued to come from AmaKhosi in the final stages of the match, but the home side managed to repel everything that came at them.

I've said it before & I'm saying it again, zebraz are just an average mediocre team with full of overrated cows.

Soapie called: THE DAYS OF NATURENA

It all started with that ugly Jearsey

Then Jessica said: Rise Khosi Rise - we are still waiting for it to happen
Then Jimmy Tau said: we will emulate Pirates this season - they doing the opposite
Then Simphiwe Tshabalala said: I want to help chiefs win the league before I move overseas - I gas this guy wont ever go to overseas
Then Bobby Motaung said: I was not voted in this position, this is not ANC or IFP, I did not hand in a CV to get this job, this is a family business
Then Jimmy Tau resigned as captain
Then 3 captains were appoint Itumeleng,Shabba,Kaizer jnr
Then they fired the coach
The soapie still continues: The Days of Naturena

HAPPY PEOPLE ONCE AND ALWAYS, we living THE BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL life

Aow banna...Natulawayo disaster.

First I saw 'Mr Probably' taking over to do interviews and when 'Contestant No.1', Kaizer J, was introduced and I knew that there's frustration and all sorts of confusion.

They better call back VV just as Maritzburg U did with Mazinyo.com.

I am sure they have ran out of excuses...iyooo this people can come up with excuses as if they are going out of fashion. I wonder who'll be the scapegoat now because the referee was absolutely spot on with the decisions. Is Colonel Khoza to blame?
