Kaizer Chiefs beat Jomo Cosmos

Posted: 13 August 2011 Time: 22:13

A rousing final 10 minutes saw ended with Kaizer Chiefs securing a 2-1 win over Jomo Cosmos at the FNB Stadium on Saturday night.

The Chiefs goals were scored by Lehlohonolo Majoro and Josta Dladla. The Cosmos goal came from Tshidiso Tukane.

AmaKhosi were in control of most of the game, but wasted far too many chances and should really have wrapped the game up by a larger margin.

The first half was Chiefs making most of the play, and Cosmos doing most of the chasing, with the visiting side showing the occasional threat on the counter-attack.

Chiefs were a constant threat down the right and it as from this channel that they scored after only one minute. Bernard Parker was the provider, whipping in a low cross, which was neatly, indeed delicately, turned home by Lehlohonolo Majoro.

Chiefs created a couple more half chances, but Cosmos keeper Avril Phali was not overly troubled.

In a rare attack, in the 16th minute, Cosmos’ Nonyane broke through on goal, but Ithumeleng Khune moved quickly off his line to close down the angle and made an excellent save. He was however hurt in the challenge and was replaced five minutes later was Arthur Bartman.

Chiefs though for the most part were on the ascendancy and could have added further goals if Parker had managed to curl his shot on target or if Siphiwe Tshabalala had done better with only Phali to beat.

Ezenkosi could have however equalised just before the break when Bartman parried Siyabonga Nontshinga’s header straight to Phethego Maebela, but he blasted wide from only five yards out.

Chiefs came out playing with purpose after the restart, with Tshabalala leading the way.

The Bafana midfielder had two efforts in quick succession, but both were superbly dealt with by the outstanding Phali.

The hosts should have made it 2-0 after 72 minutes when Majoro was fouled by Nontshinga.

But Parker, on his right foot, shot far too close to Phali, who saved with his legs.

Cosmos equalised with eight minutes to go, Bethuel Tukane scoring with a wonderful curling shot into the top corner.

It seemed as if Chiefs were going to have to settle for a draw, but in the 89th minute Tshabalala floated down the left flank and squared for Josta Dladla for an easy tap in.

Cosmos ended with 10 men after Siyabonga Nhlapo was sent off in the dying seconds.

Khululekani, that was not an offside coz Dladla run 2 da ball, he ddnt wait 4 it. Same like de goal scored by Segolela in Bucs vs Aces semi final of Nedbank. My point here was ur stubborn coach who thinks he is beta dan Bra J. He is far below Bra J, dont care who says what here. A uefa licensed coach who cant beat baroka!

hatred realy makes be 1st class idiots...what kind of observation do u have?u undermining yo own level of intelect...chiefs dominated the entire clash and wasted lot of easy scoring chances and when they took the last minute one u have guts 2 call that luck.4 ol it worth cosmos were the lucky ones 2 go home with 2 goals in the back of their net.sundowns and most especialy pirates fans are bitter because their celebration was short lived after that equalizer...grow up people & shut th F*** up when u have anything 2 say.as 4 those saying it was un-professional of vv not 2 shake hands with Jomo u just need 2 realise that psl is a carreer if u gonna have an old man like Jomo instructing his kids 2 end other people's kids carreers and find that proffessional then u realy need professional attention.its not just the fact that we won and no one ended up in hospital that matters but the intentions matter 2,Jomo intended 2 harm.SAFA must do something about this stupid old man nxx....

Little by little we are coming togerther and the momentum is building, I see the combination of Shabba, Yeye, Parker and Majoro killing teams. Baloyi is playing better than many of our players the coach should give him a chance. Both our strikers will fight for the leading Scorer while Shabba if not distrubed by injuries he will be the player of the season. We nid some young blood who can assist YEYE in the middle of park and I believe Maluleke of AJAX can be a good replacement for Nengomashe, we shud give them Yende in exchange for Maluleke.

To all Makakajuju please find the nearest bush kak there and use your realible source of info (Daily sun) to wipe your A$$es.

Oh my goodness Tebo, talk all the cr*p you want, jealous chappie. Shame man, it won't change the fact that Amakhosi will forever be number 1. I mean, what is it that you know about quality anyway? All you know is Pie City. Bad Bad stomach aches from that. So, don't waste your time hating. It won't get you anywhere. Just wonder what you'll do when we beat the living daylights out of team Bucs team. Benni "Fatso MaFats" McCarthy or not. It won't make a difference. He'll run 10 minutes & start hyperventilating!
Rise Khosi Rise !!!
