Bloemfontein Celtic and Kaizer Chiefs draw

Posted: 26 January 2011 Time: 21:47

Bloemfontein Celtic threw away a two goal lead to draw 2-2 with Kaizer Chiefs in a League match on Wednesday night.

The Celtic goals were scored by Moses Spandeel and Lennox Bacala while Steven Ncanana and Knowledge Musona scored for Chiefs.

Phunya Sele Sele were seconds away from winning 2-1 but conceded an injury time equaliser to the league’s top scorer, Knowledge Musona.

A sodden pitch at the venue should have made for a slow-paced game, but the action was fast and furious almost throughout and the players deserve great credit for producing a top class PSL clash.

The home team started like a house on fire and blazed their way to a two-goal lead inside the first 15 minutes.

Moses Spandeel got Celtic started, scoring the opening goal in the fourth minute. The veteran attacker latched onto a square pass from Prince Olomu and forced the ball home from close range, after initially scuffing his shot.

The visitors’ defence seemed to have gone Awol again in the 14th minute when Olomu sent Lennox Bacela clean through on goal. The former Santos striker showed fine composure to beat Itumeleng Khune with a low shot and put Phunya Sele Sele 2-0 up.

Chiefs very nearly came up with an immediate reply, but goalkeeper Patrick Tignyemb made a superb reaction save to turn Mandla Masango’s effort away for a corner kick. The winger looked destined to score after touching Punch Masenamela’s cross toward goal.

Chiefs pulled a goal back very much against the run of play in the 39th minute. Steven Ncanana fired a superb low shot into the bottom corner of the net from all of 25 metres out.

The visitors very nearly leveled the game in the 42nd minute, as Tignyemb fumbled a cross and Abia Nale very nearly scored from close range, but the ‘keeper somehow hacked the ball clear of the danger zone.

The second half was dominated by Kaizer Chiefs but they struggled to create scoring opportunities against a Celtic defence that was superbly marshaled by Gary Goldstone.

The visitors’ finally created a chance on 83 minutes when Musona was handed a shooting chanced from the edge of the box, but Tignyemb made an excellent reaction save to keep his side ahead.

Celtic seemed destined to clinch all three points but two minutes into additional time a diagonal ball from the left was headed down by substitute Lucky Khune, Musona controlled the ball on his chest and fired a volley into the back of the net to make it 2-2.

The late goal was heartbreaking for Phunya Sele Sele players and fans, but the Amakhosi probably deserved a share of the spoils on the balance of play.

Below is what I posted on the 14th of January after the AJAX game. I am going to say it again, idiots must beat Maritzburg and Arrows if they dream of holding that trophy.


"Jimmy_Vat_Alles_Tau: 2011-01-14 23:17

I have said it and i'm going to say it again cabbage village thinks winning the league is beating Sundowns and Pirates.

You can beat Sundowns 1000 millions times as long by the end of the season the league comes to domkop that's what count my people. Idiot's village go beat Amazulu and Celtics then you can start talking about the league."

Did you see the hostel idiot's standing up and applauding Masango after he made a tsamaya, lost the ball and went outside to be Celtic's throw in??? Aowa bathong how can poeple be so naive!!!

Wena panties tsa mo gidla...

Masango is playing for fun. I usually don’t blame our players when we loose because I know we are ll bound to mistakes, but if some is playing for or his name what should we do.
THERE IS ONLY ONE TEAM THAT PLAYS FOR A ‘THE MOST BALANCED TEAM AWARD’, I THINK HE SHOULD BE LOANED TO THAT TEAM.
Here at Kaizer Chiefs we don’t spend 10years without a major trophy.
ONCE WELDONE TO OUR TECHNICAL TEAM AND PLAYERS .

All top three teams will encounter depth problems looking at the sheer number of good in some cases even better players that have either been loaned out or released.

Mathebula just banged a cracker against Sion and is far better than Ncancencani and 'Unshuffle' Masango put together, mh. Mmotong and Tso would have come in handy for Downs gowing forward too.

Two points dropped for Chips is music to the ears of the 'power hungry' King and his galaxy of stabbers. lol.

We at Downs are not are reloading...mh.

Half a loaf is better than no bread. Nne I'm happy with the 1 point we got - especially having come from 0-2 down. I'm even more happy that lightning did not strike and kill all Chiefs players like another WITCH wished during the day.

Hard luck to the Celtic faithful, and well done to Musona for the sublime control and superb finish too! No wonder he is no longer sharing the same single bed with Sweswe and Jambo at the 'quarters in Nature'na, he deserves that inflatable camping mattress he's got now. lol!

Some people pretend as if they are happy that Chiefs equalised at the death while we know they were already celebrating a Chiefs loss. Motherf*ckers.

Under normal circumstances a draw is not a gud result when you are on a mission to win the league. But as a Khosi fan I’m very happy with the point we got today when it looked like we will go home with nothing. Well done boys for not giving up. Today’s match showed once more what everybody knows. Playing and winning against the Mighty Amakhosi is such a special thing. Celtic supporters have been boycotting their home matches all season but today they suspended the boycott to go and watch the BIGGEST TEAM IN AFRICA. Watch Celtic’s next match and there will be only a few thousand fans just like when they played SunKak two weeks ago

Chibuku and Sunkak fans who do you thinks you are fooling ? We know this result has disappointed you big time. You were already celebrating nja ndini. Celtics are not Wits who are langusinhing at the bottome of the log and with only their bench as as the 12th man. Did Sunkak go to Bloem and get a result ? And guess what only 5000 Celtic fans are there. I'm happy with a point while you morons are very angry that Celtic conceded in injury tym and spoilt "your" night.
