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.

U knw guys initially i thought one of the Soweto giants is win the league for a change but i was totally wrong, the title is going to Cape Town or Pretoria.
There's no way Pie-Rats or Chiefs can come back now.... I'm disappointed abt AmaKhosi coz they normally finish wat they hv started... As for Pie-Rats that is thier style to mess up jus b4 the end point no offence... anways good luck to Ajax coz they r playing good football and thy r talented,selfless young stars so GOOD LUCK AGAIN...

I think is time for Motaung to look for new coach and also release Masango on free transfer. How can u leave Musona and Tshabalala on the bench and expect to win. What a waste of time and to watch Chiefs nowadays. I will watch a new chiefs next season and pls Bobby recall Mathebula and give Masango his clearance.

V.V overrated & average coach. How can u loan players in the middle of the season, we do have quality and average players. wish his contract not be extended. We need local coach

@The Ghost...man I'm a buccaneer but the way yu comment here is impolite. I know yu tryin to get into this chips fans but thats not a ryte way of sayin ya comments...
Anyway to all Buccaneers...I stil believe the league is reachable, Ajax is not unbeatable nor undrawable on the remaining two games-all we (Bucs) have to do is try win all remaining games dasnt matter how.
Bucs till forever

To all the Chiefs fans out there I wanted to say sori guys, it was just not your day, Mamelodi Sundowns deserved it. Hope that Samkelo, Dumile nd Mxolisi find comfort nd know that it is not the end. Masandawana shapa.........

I'm worried that once again the Tshwane teams are dominating over Soweto teams, especially over the Galaxy of Stars.

We were really unlucky to lose to Sion on Saturday nite.
