Free State Stars vs Kaizer Chiefs Telkom Knockout match report

Posted: 20 October 2013 Time: 14:33

Itumeleng Khune saved twice against Free State Stars in the penalty shoot-out to send Kaizer Chiefs through to the Telkom Knockout semi-finals.

Despite going behind and then having a penalty saved, Amakhosi prevailed after Knowledge Musona’s late equaliser, and a fantastic performance from 'Spiderkid' during the shoot-out.

Siphiwe Tshabalala made a return to the pitch after an adductor muscle injury kept him out for the last three weeks.

Steve Komphela left Bafana Bafana midfielder Luyolo Nomandela on the bench, choosing to start with Camaldine Abraw and Abdul Basit Adam up front.

Abraw hit the post from a corner kick early on, while Musona and Willard Katsande went close for Chiefs as both sides started brightly.

Ea Lla Koto kept George Lebese and Tshabalala quiet in the first half, while Danny Venter and Adam caused problems for Amakhosi.

In fact, Adam should have put Stars ahead on half an hour, when he blasted over the bar from point blank range.

Chiefs dominated possession as the second half got underway, but could not find a way through on goal.

On the hour mark Lebese came close to opening the scoring, when Daniel Agyei – who had looked out of sorts all afternoon – failed to collect Parker’s corner-kick.

Lebese was on hand to pounce on the loose ball, but his shot hit the post.

On 68 minutes Musona was brought down in the box by Sibusiso Mthethwa, and the referee pointed to the spot.

However, Agyei’s fortunes changed and he saved Parker’s spot-kick.

The Bafana Bafana striker earned a yellow card as he attempted to hit home the rebound but caught the keeper instead.

Ea Lla Koto were awarded a penalty just minutes later, after Katsand’s reclkess challenge on Venter.

Akoriko sent Khune the wrong way to make it 1-0.

Parker attempted to atone for his sins 10 minutes from time, trying a shot from long range that went close, but ultimately only troubled the crossbar.

With three minutes on the clock, Siboniso Gaxa found Musona with a pin-point cross, and the Zimbabwean hit-man nodded home from close range.

Extra-time was a dull affair, with both teams practising caution, and the match ended 1-1.

Amakhosi dominated the shoot-out, scoring on all four attemps, while Khune saved Stars’ first two spot-kicks.

Chiefs join Platinum Stars and SuperSport United in the semi-finals.


Mashego: Saved, Yeye: Scored
Ouro-Akoriko: Saved, Katsande: Scored
Bobe: Scored, Dladla: Scored
Masehe: Scored, Parker: Scored

Last night Pirates played to a pitch that was sprinkled with beach sand. "How can you play soccer on sand," said the Zambian technical team.

Stew Baxter already bemoaned the Free-State pitch a week ago already, watch the same excuse rear it's ugly head again after 90 minutes.

Question: Does this boy Lebese look like he can handle Africa? I don't think so...

This Orlando PieRATs things think reaching a Final is. The same as Winning a Final! I thought they have learned their lesson against Stars MTN8, but no what can a Gorrila learn? They will see that a team that Win Finals is the one that History remembers Not a 2nd runner up, Mark My Words Gorillas!

The Apostle has Prophesised! Thank you!

After watching Pirates play yesterday there is definitely no way I am degrading from watching such high standard football to watching these two high school teams play ! That would be like changing from watching HD SSP to watching SABC 1, Like leaving PS3 and playing T.V game. This match is not worth my viewing PERIOD

To ALL Gorillas.. If PieRATs Win the Caf champions league, which I doubt will happen, I will quit sokka and declare them as betta than Chiefs! Roger de Sa reach finals But just can't Win them, its not in his jeans, He will continue having that dismal CV, now that's a CV cooker coz how he ended up coaching PieRATs is beyond the entire football fraternity
