Bidvest Wits hold Kaizer Chiefs to a draw

Posted: 6 April 2011 Time: 21:50

Despite a great second half performance, Kaizer Chiefs drew 1-1 with Bidvest Wits on Wednesday.

Sifiso Vilakazi opened the scoring for Wits, before Reneilwe Letsholonyane equalised.

The result was Amakhosi’s fifth successive draw and leaves them six points off the pace of log leaders Orlando Pirates, though they do have a game in hand.

While it seemed to be a stroll in the park for Amakhosi in the first 15 minutes, they took their foot of the pedal and allowed Wits to open the scoring.

Sifiso Vikazi pounced on Itumeleng Khune’s mistake to score Wits’ opening goal in the 20th minute.

A minute later, Khune atoned for his earlier mistake when he did well to parry Sibusiso Vilakazi’s shot out for a corner.

Chiefs could easily have rattled the back of the net three times in the opening 15 minutes, but Sthembiso Ncgobo, and Reneilwe Letsholonyane’s shots flew over the bar, before Darren Keet denied Siphiwe Tshabalala.

Chiefs thought they have found that much needed equaliser when Mandla Masango netted in the 46th minute, but he was ruled offside by the referee Robert Sithole.

And Chiefs could have levelled matters in the 50th minute, but Patrick Phunwayo did well to disturb Masango before he could connect with a Siphiwe Tshabalala’s cross.

Chiefs finally managed to pull one back when Masango's cross found Letsholonyane, who made no mistake in the 57th minute to put Amakhosi on level terms.

After Chiefs’ goal both teams displayed some wizardry on the ball, much to the delight of the fans who came in numbers to fill up the stadium.

The two teams meet again in a Nedbank Cup clash on Sunday at Bidvest Stadium, a game that will really separate the men from the boys.

LESEGO: its so sweet to here you throwing the towel, we told you that your team lack quality players. Check the top 3 teams and look at their quality and the you will understand what quality is.

Mina ngithi: Platinum stars is next and 3 points is already in the bag. Sundowns and Ajax will chase Pirates untill April and watch us celebrate the league and Nedbank.

Stambo: Go fuck yourself wena ngane yes'febe. Why are you insulting us? Usijwayela amasimba wena mdidi wakho. Just accept dat your average team is out of race. No team suffering from early ejaculation( winning useless cups) can seriously challenge for the league. Try Zimbabwe league maybe you might be successful. In the meantime wena sfebe go drink water wehlise ulaka. Useless coleslaw fc.

i hate chiefs fans (gays): No insults please Bhakaniya dont behave like Chiefs fans.

They are out of the race and very frustrated that Wits will kick them out of the Nedbank as well and they will have to look for a new coach and players who are free agents

LESEGO: we told you to face reality when the season started because of the quality your team posses.

Even Sundowns and Ajax know that Pirates will win it.

Chockers! Chockers, we are Chockers! we have never lost a game we deserve to lose, yet at the same time we have never won a game we deserved to win.
We need a special player now, i am really starting to hate Yende and Masango, those boys are useless for Chiefs.
To the coach, i know we create lots of chances and fail to put them away, but you are responsible for selecting players that will do teh work. It is time you start other players, ie, Khune and Lebese with the game and leave your failed material on the bench. We will not like to be Sundowns or Pirates and make you do things by force...

Dikotsi: There is no impact player at Chiefs

Shabba is team player and cannot carry a team on his shoulders.

Why was David Mathebula loaned out instead of Masango and Sibeko.

What has Yende done since he was brought to replace Nkambule who was never given a chance.

Is Ngcobo, Songwiqi, Molekwane, Ncanana, Nale Kaizer Chiefs material.

Dikotsi: Chiefs used to have good players and it was every players dream to play for them and that has changed.

I guess this is the time time where other teams are going to sell games,referees getting bribed,players faking injuries,coaches getting fired,supporters going to the stadiums in numbers,teams protesting,etc

if you love soccer this is the time to enjoy and cry at the same time

Chiefs might sell the game to AJAX & DOWNS
Celtic can still sell the game to AJAX
Maybe Swallows sold the game to Pirates

Just enjoy and cry

you might not agree with me but that is a fact and is happening all over the world and that is what makes soccer interisting

Mr editor make a topic about it and you will see the responds

Dikotsi is right, we don't have a special player, they got rid of Zizou and now we suffering, that boy was young, it would have been a major investment on our side but nooooo, VV thought otherwise and the Motaungs listened to him.....now we don't have a playmaker, the less said about Yende, the better!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For all those who blame VV, get a life. With the material Chiefs currently has not even Krol can achieve what VV has achieved at Chiefs.

Fact is , Chiefs only has a starting 11. There is no depth..
