Golden Arrows beat Kaizer Chiefs in Polokwane

Posted: 28 September 2011 Time: 21:12

George Lebese missed a penalty in the dying minutes as Kaizer Chiefs lost 2-1 to Golden Arrows at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

Arrows had led 2-0 at halftime after goals from Collins Mbesuma and Musa Bilankulu.

However, Chiefs were much better after the break and pulled one back through substitute Lebese.

They were then awarded a chance to grab a share of the spoils after a horror decision by referee Robert Sithole, but Lebese fired wide.

The opening minutes of the match saw both teams passing the ball around crisply and accurately on what was an immaculate playing surface.

However, just as Chiefs started to gain the ascendancy, some poor marking saw them go a goal behind in the 13th minute – Mbesuma tapping in after Itumeleng Khune spilled Dillon Sheppard’s volley.

Amakhosi were unable to create any real clear-cut chances on goal. Instead, their only real shot on goal was an outrageous effort from Tefu Mashamaite in the 22nd minute – a shot-cum-clearance from the halfway line which forced Helton da Rocha into a smart save.

Four minutes later, however, and the home side saw themselves going a second goal behind, again through some slack marking. Sheppard whipped a corner into the box and Bilankulu got his head to the ball, ahead of the defence, at the front post, flicking it into the goal.

The start of the second half saw Vladimir Vermezovic make an immediate change, replacing Josta Dladla with Lebese – and it paid off right away.

Only seven minutes after the restart and Lebese pulled a goal back for Chiefs after a left foot cross from Jimmy Jambo was deflected and fell to the substitute just inside the 18-yard box. He made no mistake, powerfully driving the ball into the roof of the net.

The rest of the half saw Arrows sitting back in defence trying to defend their lead and, thanks to some poor finishing by Chiefs, they were able to hold onto it.

Lebese’s miss from the spot was just reward for a horrible decision by the match official, and bought Arrows coach Ernst Middendorp some more time to try and save his job.

ZEBRAS FANS MAKE PEACE WITH VV AS HE'S GOING TO BE WITH YOU FOR A VERY LONG TIME... YOU KNOW VV IS CHEAP LABOUR AND THE MOTAUNGS ARE NOT PREPARED TO FORK-OUT A LOT OF MONEY FOR A NEW COACH. SO YOU'LL HAVE TO WAIT FOR OVER TEN YEARS TO WIN THE LEAGUE... HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN NOW?? DON'T ANSWER THAT, MY SON HAS ALREADY STARTED SCHOOL AND WE'RE STILL WAITING FOR ZEBRAS TO LIFT THE LEAGUE TROPHY.

We lost too much possession in the middle of the park and the players never really came to the party. This loss is entirely the players' fault. Sometimes it looked as if they were not interested.

I'm a chiefs fan, The ref was by ourside today, 1. he should have given J. TAU a red card for hiting the opponent with the ball. 2. He gave us a non existing penalty. 3. VLAD V must be fired. 4. Letshwenenyane. scored an own goal. 5 Butter fingers Mam Ruby- Khune must be dropped from the Bafana Squad. 6. Sijoro dreads is a cow he cant even trap the ball. 7. This useles wrestler Coach nd his assistance must be fired. 8. Mr Ndaba must fine these drunken refs who saw penalties that are not existing. I'm tired to see my beloved Zebrabel lost to smaller teams.

Guys, Katsande is comfortable as an offensive midfielder. He scores goals for Zimbabwe as Nengomasha's partner in midfield. Remember his performance against Pierats in the MTN8 final & league. He is good going foward & can shoot. He would have been a good option than Baloyi who misplaces his passes. The lack of wing play is killing us- especially on the right. It also puts more pressure on Tau. With Masango out, Nale should be an obvious option, bt the coach doesn't like him.

Chiefs has always considered goals when sweswe is on the field... and they always score when Ngcobo is on the bench..
