Premier Soccer League match report SuperSport United Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 31 August 2013 Time: 17:34

SuperSport United kept their 100 percent record in the Premiership with a come-from-behind 3-1 win over champions Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday night.

The League leaders, with nine points from three games, prevailed via strikes from Man of the Match Enocent Mkhabela, Bennett Chenene and Bradley Grobler after Bernard Parker opened the scoring at Lucas Moripe Stadium.

In a cagey affair, Chiefs came close 18 minutes in but Bafana Bafana winger Siphiwe Tshabalala's rasping left-footed shot was parried to safety by goalkeeper Ronwen Williams.

At the other end, former Moroka Swallows midfielder David Mathebula ballooned his long-range effort over 10 minutes later.

Soon after, Knowledge Musona earned his side a penalty when he fired the ball into the hand of Edwin Gyimah in the area.

Parker converted the spot-kick for his third goal of the season to put the Glamour Boys narrowly ahead at the recess.

The visitors threatened soon after the break, as Tshabalala's free-kick from the edge of the area was kept out by Williams.

United, however, replied with interest in the 55th minute, as Mkhabela thundered home a sublime touch by Mathebula  following Thabo September's long ball from the back.  

Amakhosi nearly hit back in the 63rd minute but Williams pulled off a miracle stop to foil Musona from two yards out after Parker did well to tee up his striker partner.

The hosts, though, took the lead in the 70th minute through Chenene, who tapped in on the rebound after Chiefs skipper Itumeleng Khune blocked a powerful strike from Thuso Phala.

Grobler extended the advantage three minutes later from the spot after Bafana defender Siboniso Gaxa unwittingly clipped the heel of Chenene in the area.

Stuart Baxter's men were unable to find a way back, resulting in their first League loss of the campaign.

Jerrrr ! Only 3 attacking players, the rest are defensive minded. So its gonna be a wait and see kinda approach from the fluke champs, sucking up all the pressure, counter with the wing backs combining with the three attackers. Thats football of cowards. Mxm mfeneyeye is driving the bus today. WHITE RED AND BLACK, AND HOPE SSP GET PAST THAT BUS 5 TIMES.

Gaxa is very good choice at the right back for Amakhosi, something good thing will come from his side.

It looks like Gayzer chimps are no longer playing javelin. As for supersport...very dissapointing defending too deep and make the game boring.

taking nothing away from the zebra supporters, they are coming in numbers. I think zebras must take their home games to Attridgeville. Zebras get a disappointing less than1000 supporters in Soccer City when playing the small teams. Coming back to serious issues, so far the game is dull lacking sparks. Both teams are just playing for fan parking unnecessary buses. I even feel drowsy thinking of switching to another channel. Downs/Arrows game was far better than what I'm watching.
