Mamelodi Sundowns beat Kaizer Chiefs 2-0

Posted: 1 May 2011 Time: 18:05

Mamelodi Sundowns lifted themselves to third on the League table and gave their title hopes a boost with a 2-0 win over Kaizer Chiefs on Sunday.

Goals from Nyasha Mushekwi and Elias Pelembe secured the victory for the Brazilians, taking them five points adrift of leaders Ajax Cape Town with a game in hand.

Amakhosi are six points back from the top with just two rounds of the season remaining.

The match started at a furious pace, and Chiefs created better chances in the first half; three times they broke the Sundowns offside trap but they were unable to capitalise on the opportunities.

Mandla Masango had two of the chances, first being brilliantly challenged by makeshift right-back Siyabonga Ngubane, the second time curling his shot wide of the far post.

Josta Dladla also went one-on-one with Waynde Sandilands after a great pass from Mthokozisi Yende but was denied by the goalkeeper.

Just past the half-hour mark Sundowns broke the deadlock.

Chiefs were unable to clear their lines after repeated attempts on goal from Teko Modise and Katlego Mphela.

Eventually Mphela guided the ball away from traffic in the middle of the box towards Nyasha Mushekwi, who took advantage of poor positioning from Itumeleng Khune to score with a left-footed shot.

And just seven minutes into the second stanza, the Brazilians doubled their lead.

Mphela was again the architect, providing a looping cross from the right of the penalty area, and Pelembe crashed home an unstoppable volley.

Chiefs reacted by using all three substitutions within 11 minutes of going 2-0 down and they proceeded to dominate the remainder of the game.

However, they were unable to find a way past Man of the Match Sandilands, who made several excellent saves.

Sundowns could have even added to the scoreline through Mphela, who found himself one-on-one with Khune, but his chipped finish drifted just wide of the post.

Doctor 'Phuzawise' Khumalo must take over from VV, his analysis is not only biased but emotional too.
Kaizer, do the right thing and get this drunkard off our tv screens tu.

By the way.....it was'nt a great sight seeing Jessica weeping uncontrollably, Bobby seated next to her did'nt give her that 1-ply tissue he was carrying, cause he needed some for himself. tl, tl, tl.

Hahahahahahahaha...4ome Chibuku fans have crawled back from under some rocks. They pretend to be happy abt our loss yet we know they where hoping for a draw.for me as long as Ajax win the lig I don't mind and this can happen next week mind you. We give them 3 points Chibuku loses or draws against Santos, Sunkak loses or draw against Amazului and Ajax take the lig.

tzozzo tlohela ho nyela, you were praying for a win especially after we lost ... now look at you trying to save face ... here are the hard cold facts: YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THE LEAGUE, AND YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THE NEDBANK. The worse scenario for Pirates is winning just one and not the other ... deal with that.
