Kaizer Chiefs draw with Santos in Cape Town

Posted: 20 February 2011 Time: 17:48

Santos held Kaizer Chiefs to a 2-2 draw during a drama-filled Premiership game at the Athlone Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The first half was action packed, with Chiefs enjoying the better of play, creating numerous chances on goal, while Santos always looked dangerous on the counter-attack.

Amakhosi were rampant in the opening stages and Kaizer Motaung Jnr almost opened the scoring when he lobbed Tshepo Motsoeneng in the 11th minute, but the Santos keeper was able to get a crucial touch to send the ball wide of goal.

Motsoeneng followed that up as he made a brave save from Tinashe Nengomashe’s well-connected shot from the resultant corner.

There were also snap shots for Knowledge Musona and Reneilwe Letsholonyane as the visitors ran rampant early on.

However, it was the Peoples’ Team who took a surprise 23rd minute lead when Vuyisile Wana raced onto Salmaan King’s outstanding through ball and coolly rounded Ithumeleng Khune before finishing into an empty net.

Chiefs came straight back at Santos and their efforts paid off in when Jimmy Tau stormed into the box to get on the end of Musona’s through ball, where he was tripped by Ricardo Skippers.

Musona took the spot-kick and easily converted, making it 1-1.

The remainder of the half saw the Soweto giants continuing to dominate, there was no addition to the scoreline.

Chiefs were close to scoring just after the break, but Motsoeneng was again up the task, making a breathtaking save from Motaung’s header.

It was at the other end that the next goal came, Jurie Basie putting Santos 2-1 up with a glancing header after King’s lobbed cross into the box after 52 minutes.

But the Soweto side were back to level terms just over 20 minutes later when Sthembiso Ngcobo emphatically headed home Tshabalala’s deflected cross.

Chiefs were denied an 84th minute penalty when Musona's shot appeared to hit Wayne Arendse's arm.

Both sides had their moments in a thrilling finale, but neither side really came close to scoring as the match ended all square.

Mark Gleeson and his William Shongwe better be advised that some of us from outside south africa pay a lot of money for DSTV and they should stop feeding us with nosensical commentory. A commentator who disqualifies well worked for goals like those scored by Santos as goals that came from nowhere does not deserve his place. Please comment on games and know that not all of us are chiefs fans we also have our favourite teams.
Swona Champ!

Check the last 6 games that chiefs played, they conceeded silly goals in all of thise games. If Khune can make an easy save then they will say number1 keeper..blah..blah. Khune has been over-rated for sometimes now and I agree that it is time for Josephs to get his cahnce in the National team. Moneeb Josephs had many clean sheet week in and out and hopefully Pitso Mosimane is watching.

Our defense is pathetic, if we expect to defend like that against porridge FC then we might as well kiss the league good bye. That santos 2nd goal was ridiculous. Silly Silly Silly. What I like about Dladla is when Tau Overlaps, he covers him up, but the others they sit at their position, we need Dladla against Chibuku, he played very well, why the coach replaced him, only his b0lls knows..

We really missed the reliable Isaacs. Our defense was caught on several occasions napping, even Tau on the day was performing below his standard. Chiefs always play badly before and after a big game. The coach with his late substitutions is frustrating

Honestly speaking i can now confirm that most of the us Kaizerchiefs supporters we programmed just imagine when we play badly we dont want to be honest about it will bit around a bush I'm a chiefs supporter and i know soccer so the one that think that i'm hurting them by speaking the truth they can throw themselves in the nearest river in kliptown for that matter,We keep on saying our players are super starts just imagine we need 3 points and its 2-2 no sense of agency was shown by our players for the three points but well love Chiefs and will come out with the truth.I went to watch wits last four matches honestly speaking from what i got from them is better than what chiefs showed me De sa's boys are serios they trust each other they play according to their strength so stop being sterio tipe and watch other matches then you'll judge our team we should pull our socks up or else ?????

My blood is Gold and Black but lets show that we want to win the league lets not talk

The goal diff between Mdoko Fc and Kaizer Chiefs is 1goal. We must not read too much in teams who pull their sox only when they play against so called big teams of gauteng only to lose 6 nil and 3 nil when they play against other lousy teams. Kaizer Chiefs is playing well, yes we could improve our defence, but I believe we are not covering the defence from the middle. Whenever we lose the ball in the middle of the park teams score against us, e.g. Plat stars and izolo santos too, i believe the same happened with celtic. Defence is strong enough at some stage we had best record defencively. Our midfield needs to pick up their sox. I still say though, I'd rather see the team concede goals and play exciting soccer and see other teams do the same than watch goal less draws that are dull. This is my opinion. Proud supporter of Kaizer Chiefs.
