Platinum Stars beat Kaizer Chiefs in Telkom Knockout

Posted: 23 October 2011 Time: 17:32

Defending Telkom Knockout Cup champions Kaizer Chiefs were dumped out of the competition by a former player of theirs Thusa Phala handed Platinum Stars a 2-1 extra-time victory.

While Chiefs were probably the better of the two sides, failure to convert their pressure and dominance into goals cost them dearly.

In the ninth minute Joseph Molangoane should really have given the home side the lead when Elias Ngwepe played him through on goal after a superb run down the left, but the attacker fired over from 12 yards out.

After that, however, it was all Chiefs, who controlled the game with their fluid passing, but lack of imagination in the final third saw them shoot from long range but with little effect.

One such attempt came from Lucky Baloyi in the 28th minute after he beat a couple of defenders and unleashed a powerful shot from 22 yards out, but it went narrowly wide.

Then, in the 37th minute, very much against the run of play, the home side took the lead when they hit on a swift counter-attack. Sibusiso Msomi broke down the right and supplied the perfect cross to find Henrico Botes, who made no mistake with a clinical volley from six-yards out.

The second half was more of the same as Chiefs pressed forward in their numbers, and finally they were able to breach the Stars goal line in the 62nd minute.

Siphiwe Tshabalala created the goal when he drove down the right, beating a couple of defenders before unselfishly laying the ball off to an unmarked Sthembiso Ngcobo, who calmly passed the ball into the back of the net.

Neither side really pressed forward following the equalising goal and it made for a dull final half-hour and the game moved into extra-time.

Extra-time was also a rather boring affair as both teams looked exhausted, but one man had enough energy to right his name in the headlines when Phala scored the winning goal in the 104th minute.

Substitute Terrance Mandaza put Phala behind the Chiefs defence with a great through-ball. Phala though, still had plenty of work to do as he drove towards goal from about 40 yards out and as he made his way into the box, Bartman came off his line and the Stars man powered the ball past him to win the match.

so far, all the visiting teams has been
booted out.
Lol what does this formula means 4 zebra's
ape's???
""""""""""""""""""""""
Heita Thibos, my answer is All visiting teams
who were booted out will learn a thing or
two from the BIGGEST TEAM in Africa. Chiefs
will show them how is done.
Watch the attendance from the stands
tmrw, it will be 98% of Chiefs and 2% of the
home team. Thanks for your concern, but
we are not. We will be qualify for the next
round, may I add Comfortably.

The Chiefs coach needs to learn man-management & conflict management/resolution skills coz u can almost touch the tension & division in the Chiefs team! There is simply no team spirit & cohesion! Neither is there the desire to try harder from his players!!!

Congrats to Owen da Gama and his players!!!

Sho Thibos. You did warn me and I took it for granted. Thanks and hard luck to us. Credit to you.

There is a lot of unhappiness in our camp. Do Chiefs management this we can't see that? Some people need to be fired and we need new structures next season

Chances of zebras
winning a cup this season:
1. mt8- already won by pirates
2. telkom knock out which they
were defending- out
3. nedbank cup- allergic they
can't make it where there's 1st
nd 2nd division teams
4. league- not league material
CHANCES OF WINNING 0%
This people cant rise from the dead

BOOOOOO! ViVian Must seriously faaaaak off. Oh wait, thats right we dont have enough quality in dis kaaak team of ours. This is sad and i hope that fat faaak sista bobby is happy wit his handiwork which begun 3 seasons ago when he decided chiefs is his team and decided to sign rubbish like matheba,nale,zanu jambo,lucky khune, molekwane and practically 80 percent of our current team. Its hightime chiefs fans became real fans like the sunclown supporters and boycott this shiiiii.t....!
