Kaizer Chiefs beat Bidvest Wits 2-1

Posted: 24 August 2011 Time: 21:12

Kaizer Chiefs continued their impressive start to the season with a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Bidvest Wits at FNB Stadium.

Having beaten the Clever Boys by the same score in the MTN8 quarterfinals earlier this month, Amakhosi kept up their 100 percent start to their League campaign thanks to goals from Josta Dladla and Lehlohonolo Majoro – the third successive game in which the two have netted a goal apiece.

The teams were evenly matched in the first half, though Wits were perhaps the faster out of the starting blocks and created a couple of half chances for Bhongolwethu Jayiya and Ryan Chapman, but Itumeleng Khune was equal to both of their attempts.

Chiefs gradually found their rhythm in attack and were soon threatening the visitors’ defence, with Siphiwe Tshabalala cracking a shot over the crossbar in the 18th minute.

Five minutes later the Amakhosi created the best chance of the half, with Dladla running onto a brilliant ball out of defence from Khune, but Energy Murambadoro made a great save in a one-on-one situation.

The rest of the first half and the early minutes of the second saw the defences tighten up, but Chiefs broke the deadlock almost out of nowhere in the 54th minute.

Tshabalala provided a wonderful cross from the left flank and Dladla scored his third goal of the season with a bullet header that gave Murambadoro absolutely no chance.

But Chiefs’ lead was relatively short-lived as Sibusiso Vilakazi took advantage of an assist from his namesake Sifiso to drive home an equalising goal in the 68th minute.

The Clever Boys very nearly surged into the lead just a few minutes later, with a deflected cross from Sipho Mngomezulu dropping onto the top of the crossbar, before Sifiso Myeni lobbed an effort over the crossbar under pressure from Khune.

Chiefs responded to the Wits resurgence by introducing Majoro off the bench, and the former AmaZulu player netted the winner in the 77th minute, heading home from Dladla’s cross.

Khune was called upon to make one exceptional save as Chiefs defended their lead, palming away a long range shot that skidded through a crowded penalty area, though he was somewhat fortunate that Myeni was unable to turn home the rebound.

I love it when we win dirty- there was no playmaker on the day and next time we gonn get paunished for not dictating terms and conditions on the field. We are a big, we won by reputation, not by dictating terms on the field. Any, I had a good dream and wondered why, then it hit me that the "other" soweto guys lost to a minor team, to top it all, threw missiles in on the pitch... that made my dream!!!

I am not just happy that we won,i am VERY VERY VERY Happy PAMPERS FC lost.i jumped with joy when i heard the result.God is great!!!

Clowns must just score 1goal and pack the bus,even if it means using 2 goalkeepers, 6 defenders,1midfilder and 1 striker these weekend.That would be AYOBA.Since their coach is talking in SLOW MOTION,we will see how he deals with these LOSS

We need to start grooming players, when YeYe is not there we lack the Momentum in the Middle and this lead us to not take the control of the game. Nengomashe is tired we need to start testing the new signing or play YeYe together with Baloyi, I wish Lebese can be back to add more spark to our team, we need someone who can dictate terms at the back. We need to finish the First round without loosing a match.

Congratulations Makhoshikasi. You must be highly satisfied as you have been longing to occupy topspot for a long time. You can sit there until around April if you can there is no problem, but at the end you know who will be coming from behind to snatch the league.. Hooooorrrraaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy..!! Take photo guys..!!

VV must just stop being harsh at players... Majoro doesn't make a lot of silly mistakes, now I'm worried the boy won't play free.
