Xulu wins it for Sundowns

Posted: 19 December 2009 Time: 17:24

Siyanda Xulu’s goal with 10 minutes to go handed Mamelodi Sundowns a 2-1 Absa Premiership win over Kaizer Chiefs at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Katlego Mphela continued his fine form with a 35th-minute opener, but Amakhosi hit back through Josta Dladla’s penalty just before the break.

Inside the opening two minutes Chiefs were on the back foot, with Itumeleng Khune coming to the rescue twice early on. First he made an acrobatic save to deny Luvengo Mungomeni, before keeping out Mabhuti Khenyeza’s header from debutant Franklin Cale’s corner-kick.

Khune then denied Mphela, saving with his legs in a one-on-one situation, before the Sundowns striker headed just wide of goal on 20 minutes.

Chiefs were having difficulty dealing with the continuous attacks, with Mungomeni’s shot shaving the outside of the upright, before the opener eventually arrived.

Tlou Molekwane’s backpass to Khune was woefully short, allowing the striker to get past the keeper and slot into an empty net.

However, despite the one-sided nature of the game, Chiefs went into the break on level terms after Mungomeni was adjudged to have handled Reneilwe Letsholonyane’s shot. Dladla converted from the spot.

Sundowns continued their dominance after the break, with Khenyeza missing another great chance just before the hour-mark, before they got the winner their play deserved on 78 minutes.

Pelembe’s free-kick from the left was flicked on by Khenyeza, but Khune managed to blocked the ball. However, Xulu was on hand to bundle the ball over the line for three crucial points.

The last piece of action came in second half stoppage-time as Khune got down well to save Surprise Moriri’s free-kick.

now that you have read the comments above, which supporters do you think are disparaging?
but seriously though folks, kc need to beef its squad. the management should know by now that this team always plays finals. every team loves to beat them. even injured players get healed immediately just to play against them. every player's highlight in football is scoring or beating chiefs. more quality is needed. hard luck boys. AMAKHOSI!!!!!!!!

Sphiwe u don't even have to ask that question coz they retreated back to their holes eating a dolops of humbled pies.They thought out numbering&ridiculing Mphela&us on this Forum would make them win the game.VV knew long time ago that he'd lose this game hence he complimented us long before we even beat them.They've kissed the League goodbye&hey they must thank Khune for saving them time n again.Had it not been for him we would've buried them with an avalanche of goals.Those who said bad things about Mphela i hope they know the difference between Mphela n Ledwaba now.I hope Kaizer hasn't got a heart attack whereva he is coz the reason their team can't compete with us is they like cheap playaz instead of beefing up their squad they're busy making false promises of a new stadium to their poor fans maar kuphi khona there's no stadium while we pay R5 millions for playaz.I don't know why Kaizer doesn't make a loan to Mr Motsepe to build that stadium coz it's clear that they're broke.

Sundowns have a good mentor in Hristo Stoichkoiv, this man know how to get the best out of his players and they understand him.Oh what a player (Ellias Pelembe)no one matching this boy in the PSL. Well done Brazilians, only one team can beat Sundowns is Sundowns.
