Free State Stars beat Kaizer Chiefs

Posted: 11 December 2010 Time: 17:31

A rare Itumeleng Khune error gave Free State Stars a 1-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday afternoon.

Khune's error allowed Buitumelo Sekgobela to tap the ball home, with Chiefs looking a shadow of the side that thumped Orlando Pirates in the Telkom Knockout Final a week ago.

Chiefs did look full confidence early on and passed the ball around nicely but, against all odds, it was the home side that took the lead after Khune’s mistake in the 13th minute.

Mpho Makola fired in a long-range shot that bounced just in front of the Bafana Bafana keeper and seemed to skew of the pitch slightly, resulting in Khune fumbling the ball straight into the path of Sekgobela, who made no mistake.

Sthembiso Ngcobo should have found the equaliser for his side three minutes later, but he squandered a golden opportunity after being played in by Knowledge Musona.

The remainder of the half saw very little goal mouth action at either end. However, that was only until the final minute of the half when Khune probably produced one of the saves of the season.

Sekgobela made a break behind the Chiefs defence and found himself with plenty of time and space, but Khune was in no mood to concede a second goal and did brilliantly diving full stretch to his left to deny Sekgobela.

The second half saw a predictable pattern emerge as Chiefs produced attack after attack in search of the equaliser, while Stars seemed content to sit back in defence and hit on the counter-attack.

Ngcobo came close to scoring five minutes into the half when he got off a shot from the edge of the 18-yard area, but his effort just skimmed the wrong side of the upright.

Ten minutes later and it was Musona who missed a golden scoring opportunity when he headed over from only six-yards out when he should have done a lot better.

In the end Chiefs, despite their domination of the second half, couldn’t break the down the stubborn Free State Stars defence.

Not surprised at all. The Jazabels are weak. Krol gave them the cup. It took just one game to show how ordinery they are. Even with the help of the referee they still failed against no name Freestate stars.

Everytime a kaizer Jazabel player is touched, that stupid referee gave them a freekick. Ag shame, he tried hard to help the chimps. I dont even know where the 3 plus one minute came from.

theres only one team vying for the league. the others are chasing top 8,trying avoid relegation etc.top 8 is not even guaranteed for ateam like chiefs because when you look at it they are only 3 points ahead of Vasco.

1 thing I like about football are fans, most of them abayisweli into abangayisho. Well as a chiefs fan I think Chiefs deserved to lose and no excuses but I still maintain the fact that Its too early to tell who will win the league, we have 60 more points to try out for and sundowns are 7 points clear of Chiefs, but I hav been wacthing fusbal for a long time and i know that the league is not yet over.

He he he he he!!!! They lose against a small team like FSS and they get so frustrated and start insulting Pirates supporters for pointing the obvious. FSS should have scored 4 goals.

Chiefs supporters must look at theselves and never include Pirates in you obsevasion.I mean there is no quality at Chiefs.The only thing that is preventing chiefs to be lambested is the way in which the media has geated Chiefs.Even if there were not playing all right the media always on their side as their favirate son (Kaizer) is their number one chairman in the PSL.You can even fill it when Kick Off is reporting about them.No critisising of VV or their players but comes tomorow if Pirates win you will hear critising Krol and Pirates management.They even want to know where is Modise that.Where is Mathebula.Sibeko.Nhleko.Torrelba,Mbooi,Khune the least is entless.They don;t want to here about them.Chiefs ke di kgomo ka moka ga bona le management wa gona.They blided by only win against Pirates and they think they are already there.Go back and look yourself in the mirror .

Even VV said it, they are only motivated when they play against the biggest team in Africa. Against their equal opponents these cows fail.

All psl bloemases, i told you that kaizer Cabbages have reached thier ultimate goal, beating Pirates. They even surprised themselves. Now this is the Jazabels I know, lose against minnows even though the referee is trying his best to help the chimps.
